JOYCE MANOR Premieres New Video, Announces Fall Tour Dates!

“I’d like to mention that it begs for repeated listens                   and despite consisting of 9 songs in only 13 minutes, each track                   has got a hell of a lot of individuality.” – BrooklynVegan

“Thanks to their exceptional songcraft and endearingly                   ragged style, they cram enough hooks, novelty and charm into                   these song snippets to keep you coming back for more. ADD music                   for our ADD times.” – Toronto Sun

” [Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired is] as                   brooding as it is playful, and the whole thing offers a refreshing                   spin on punk mentality and youth culture — and that’s a sentiment                   we won’t soon grow tired of.” – PureVolume

Los Angeles, CA – JOYCE                   MANOR have premiered their first ever music video                   today on Filter Magazine, it can be                   seen at http://tinyurl.com/9cxk84g.                   Created entirely by award winning Toronto filmmaker Grandson                   and Son, the video combines “Drainage”                   and “If I Needed You There”, two                   songs from their latest release, Of All Things I                   Will Soon Grow Tired. All the puppets were specially                   created for the video and all the puppetry was done by Grandson                   and Son. “My neighbours were just visited by Children’s                   Services over the wee one’s black eye a few days before and                   there was talk of them taking their kids away. I can vouch that                   there was nothing bad going on. The idea came to me shortly                   after,” said Grandson and Son on the concept behind the                   video. “Grandson and Son emailed us with a 20 second video                   clip… we were intrigued to say the least, so we let them do                   their thing. It came out exactly as I would have liked it to,”                   says Joyce Manor bassist Matt Ebert. “I’m                   proud to have our music serve as the soundtrack to this video!”

The band, who is set to depart                   for their first tour of Europe this week, has also announced                   several new North American tour dates this fall, including appearances                   at Fun Fun Fun Fest, Fest                   11 and dates with Burning Love and                   Hop Along (tour dates below). Since                   releasing their sophomore album Of All Things I Will Soon                   Grow Tired on Asian Man Records in April                   of this year to critical acclaim, Joyce Manor has been on the                   road virtually non-stop with the likes of Against Me!, Andrew                   Jackson Jihad and Algernon Cadwallader.

“The opportunities we’ve                   been given since the new record came out have been really exciting,”                   says Ebert. Already selling through numerous pressings since                   it was first released, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired                   has critics everywhere raving about the band. “Their                   impeccable songwriting and hardcore succinctness earn the band                   their distinction as awesome,” claims The Portland                   Mercury, while Alternative Press heralds,                   “On Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, Joyce                   Manor accomplish in 13 minutes what takes lesser bands their                   whole careers to do. They both expand the current boundaries                   of their internet-chosen subgenre and push themselves into completely                   new sonic territory. The results are extraordinary.”

Their sophomore record is the                   follow-up to their 2011 self-titled full-length, released on                   6131 Records. It was named Punknews‘                   2011 Album of the Year as the buzz                   about the band quickly reached fever pitch everywhere from LA                   Weekly to AbsolutePunk.                   All this from a band who describes themselves as “four                   tired guys with a taste for bad chinese food, Thin Lizzy guitar                   solos and calling ‘shotgun’.”

Joyce Manor is                   Barry Johnson, Matt Ebert, Chase Knobbe,                   and Kurt Walcher. Of All Things                   I Will Soon Grow Tired was recorded at Atomic                   Garden Studios in Palo Alto, CA with Jack Shirley.
