No Joy

As mentioned, Montreal's No Joy will release their new album, Wait to Pleasure, on April 23 and it's a nice blast of textured, hooky shoegaze. You can stream "Lunar Phobia" below.

The band already have dates lined up with Clinic and METZ, but after those stints end, No Joy will swing through the Northeast on the way home, stopping in NYC for two shows: May 15 at Mercury Lounge and May 16 at Glasslands. Tickets for Mercury Lounge go on AmEx presale on Wednesday (3/13) at noon with the regular on-sale hitting Friday (3/15) at noon. Tickets for Glasslands are on sale now.
