Joyce Manor's new album, Never Hungover Again, is streaming now via NPR's First Listen. The album is out July 22 on Epitaph Records. Listen to Never Hungover Again now at href="http://www.npr.org/2014/07/13/329489701/first-listen-joyce-manor-never-hungover-again?autoplay=true">NPR>.
Never Hungover Again is a collection of ten precisely put-together songs about how things fall apart. There are broken homes, drunken nights, faltering relationships, and the kind of raw emotion that makes you want to feel anything even if it hurts. Singer and primary songwriter Barry Johnson writes some of the saddest lyrics you'd ever find yourself shouting along to.
Grantland's Steven Hyden called the record "perfect summer music...the world needs this album now." SPIN praised the band's "songs that are rich in melody, short in length, and colored with gentle-hearted loneliness". Noisey said that Never Hungover Again "will most definitely rule incalculably hard."
Joyce Manor plays a record release show at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday July 22 and will follow that with a hometown show at The El Rey in Los Angeles, CA on Friday July 25. The band will then play FYF Fest on Saturday, August 23 in addition to a short run with Brand New.
This fall, Joyce Manor will embark on their first ever North American headlining tour in support of Never Hungover Again.
