Joyce Manor announce new Kurt Ballou-produced album, share song, touring

Joyce Manor Million Dollars

Joyce Manor have announced a followup to 2016’s great Cody (our #1 punk/emo album of 2016 and #6 album of 2016 overall). It’s called Million Dollars to Kill Me, and they made this one with Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou producing and big name engineer Andrew Scheps mixing. It’s also their first album with Pat Ware of Spraynard on drums. The first single is the title track, which doesn’t stray from the band’s short, punchy, no frills formula (it’s over and done with in two minutes and ten seconds), and as we’ve come to expect from Joyce Manor, the backbone is strong and driving but the melodies are sugar sweet. Listen and watch the lyric video (made by Eric Richter) below. That’s the artwork above, and you can check out the tracklist below too.

Joyce Manor have also announced a tour, kicking off in Woodstock, NY on 10/9 and wrapping up in San Francisco on 11/3. They also announced a hometown-area LA show for January 2019 with Jeff Rosenstock and special guests.

The tour includes a NYC show on October 11 at Brooklyn Steel and a NJ show on October 12 at Asbury Lanes, which are both with Vundabar and Big Eyes. Tickets for those shows will be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, you can catch Big Eyes in NYC this Thursday (7/19) at Mercury Lounge with Acid Dad (tickets).
