Montreal's No Joy are set to return with their new album, Wait to Pleasure, which comes out April 23 via Mexican Summer. Working in a proper studio for the first time -- with Violens' Jorge Elbrecht at the helm -- the band are still in the hazy shoegaze world, but where previous records were focused on noise and volume, the new one aims for atmospheric, ethereal textures. So less Swervedriver, more Lush if that means anything to you. Stream the dreamy first single, "Lunar Phobia," below.

No Joy have dates coming up with Clinic and Metz, neither of which jaunts will hit NYC but hopefully they'll play here soon. All dates are listed below.

Dreamlike, acid dreamers - good trip takes me into inner mental cavern to recap long lost memories - no joy - lunar phobia -very cosmic. Rich. I'd like to live in an honest world where this is what I see at the Grammy awards...just dreaming. Hey, also this is what was happening in '88, '89 with Lush and Manchester Merseybeat music scene, they were like this. Lunar condenses them, good.
