Joyce Manor Release New Album 'Million Dollars To Kill Me' Today

Today, Joyce Manor release their new album Million Dollars to Kill Me, the California band’s fifth studio effort. Produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, Million Dollars to Kill Me came to life at Ballou’s own GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts. Additionally, Million Dollars to Kill Me was mixed by Andrew Scheps (Weezer, AFI, Green Day).

This week, Joyce Manor shared the video for the instantly-catchy single “Silly Games”. According to SPIN, the song sees the band “lean into the pop-side of the pop-punk equation, tempering their guitar fuzz with glockenspiel tinkles and melodic wordless sighs.” Watch the video for “Silly Games” now

While Joyce Manor’s 2016 release Cody focused on growing up, Million Dollars to Kill Me looks at what happens next: reckonings with love, money, doubt, confusion, and the hope that persists despite it all. Throughout the album, Joyce Manor augment that tension with their layered guitar work: Chase Knobbe’s uncommon ability to make songs sound sadder and tougher at the same time, Barry Johnson’s flair for mixing minor and major chords to invoke a precise kind of overpowering melancholy.

Previously, Joyce Manor announced a 22 date headlining tour, beginning October 9 in Woodstock, NY at The Colony and going through November 3 in San Francisco, CA at The Fillmore. On January 19, Joyce Manor will headline The Hollywood Palladium in the band's hometown, Los Angeles, CA. Tickets are on sale now.
