Today, SoCal pop-punk trio Joyce Manor announces North American tour dates beginning August 3 in Denver, Colorado and ending August 27 in Phoenix, Arizona. Joyce Manor also reveals details of a headlining concert at The Long Beach Arena on January 7, 2023 with PUP and Jeff Rosenstock as support. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 20 at 10 a.m. local time, you can find them here.
As previously announced, Joyce Manor will release her 6th studio album 40 oz. in Fresno on June 10 via Epitaph Records. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Tokyo Police Club, “Cody” from Joyce Manor) mixed by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix) with Tony Thaxton from Motion City Soundtrack on drums, a sense of liberation is at the heart of this project. It’s oddly appropriate that the title was taken from a self-correcting text message on Sublime. These types of happy accidents are all over 40 oz. For Fresno and worth the subsequent sound hangover.
Joyce Manor is a band from Torrance, California consisting of Barry Johnson (vocals/guitar), Chase Knobbe (guitar) and Matt Ebert (bass). Johnson and Knobbe started the band in 2008 in the Disneyland parking lot while sharing a bottle of cheap booze. Named after an apartment complex Johnson passed by every day, Joyce Manor debuted as a two-piece acoustic. Quickly, they realized that playing loud was a lot more fun and invited friends to join in the training.
The group has since released five studio albums; Joyce Manor (2011), Of All the Things I’ll Soon Get Tired of (2012), Never Hangover Again (2014), Cody (2016), A Million Dollars to Kill Me (2018) and Songs from Northern Torrance (2020). Joyce Manor has toured extensively and made festival appearances at FYF Fest, Coachella, Riot Fest and others. Press accolades for Joyce Manor include support from Pitchfork, Stereogum, NPR, The New York Times, Brooklyn Vegan, SPIN, Rolling Stone, The FADER, and more.
