No Joy are going to be mixing it up this year, releasing a series of EPs, the first of which is titled Drool Sucker that will be out via Topshelf on July 15. After making two pristine albums with Jorge Elbrecht, the Montreal band made this EP with Holy Fuck's Graham Walsh and Brian Borcherdt in their barn studios in rural Ontario and the results are refreshingly ragged. The lead track's title, "A Thorn In Garlands Side," works as a descriptor of the song, as there's a bit of Cocteau Twins dreaminess at the eye of a raging storm of guitar noise. It's killer and you can stream it below.

The band are currently on tour with White Lung in Europe. Stay tuned for more North American shows. All dates are listed below.
