Joyce Manor Release New Album and Begin US Tour

Joyce Manor

Los Angeles band Joyce Manor releases their sophomore album, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired today, April 17, on Asian Man Records. Already the album and band have been critically hailed by numerous outlets, and the buzz surrounding them is growing rapidly. The album is being streamed this week in its entirety on Spinner where it can be heard for free.

Alter the Press is also featuring a hysterically funny track by track breakdown of the new record written by none other than David Liebe Hart of Adult Swim‘s Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! at

Critical acclaim for the band and their self-titled debut album reached fever-pitch in 2011, making them one of the most buzzed-about bands of the year. LA Weekly singled out Joyce Manor as “one of the most promising bands” in LA, and Bring On Mixed Reviews commented, “It’s rare that a band gets it this right with their first effort,” while Decoy Music claims “Joyce Manor is one of a few bands to do their forefathers proud.” Perhaps Punknews put it best and most simply though, when bestowing upon the band the honor of Album of the Year, that “Joyce Manor is everyone’s favorite new artist. Those who disagree are clearly lying.”

Blow The Scene caught up with Joyce Manor for a feature interview shortly after the band recorded their self-titled debut, so be sure to check it out if you missed it!

Not bad for four guys who describe themselves as having a “taste for bad Chinese food, Thin Lizzy guitar solos, and calling ‘shotgun’.” Joyce Manor is currently on tour throughout North America with Andrew Jackson Jihad and Treasure Fleet (tour dates below).
