The band’s most recent album, last year’s ‘40 oz. to Fresno’ is an unusual blend of newly-written tracks and resurrected demoes from further back in their career; the end result feels like a strong 360 of what the band have been and the pathway they now continue to walk. It is testament to their song-writing prowess, and Johnson’s brutal self-editing process, that a band who rarely release songs which exceed the two minute mark, manage to engage with so many varied genres.
Having recently been over to the UK as part of a stunning Menzingers supporting bill (alongside the fabulous Sincere Engineer) we know exactly what to expect from a Joyce Manor show in 2023 – a breakneck romp through a huge cross-section of their back catalogue with a focus on reckless fun and shouted singalongs. The band will appear at 2000 Trees festival on Wednesday 5th July before clocking up Leeds and London dates prior to heading back to the USA to dive head-first into another run of shows
2000 Trees begins tomorrow with limited tickets available and both Joyce Manor headline dates are now returns only.
5th - 2000 Trees, Cheltenham
6th - The Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
8th - The Garage, London
