New Joyce Manor Album "Never Hungover Again" Out Now

Joyce Manor's new album Never Hungover Again is out today on Epitaph. The critics have spoken:

"The optimal balance of maturity and immaturity is right there in the title, so throw on Never Hungover Again when you're still looking to get into dumb shit, but you just want to be smarter about it." - Pitchfork

"California's Joyce Manor drop pearls of pop-punk wisdom: songs that are rich in melody, short in length, and colored with a gentle-hearted loneliness." - Spin

'With albums shorter than it takes to watch an episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast; the punk band can pack an emotional wallop with as much as a yelp." - NPR

"The world needs this album now." - Grantland

Joyce Manor plays a record release show at Rough Trade in Brooklyn, NY TODAY and will follow that with hometown shows on Thursday July 24 at Amoeba Records (Hollywood) and a SOLD OUT show at The El Rey in Los Angeles, CA on Friday July 25 with support from Tony Molina and Winter Break. To get into today's record release show in Brooklyn, NY at Rough Trade you must purchase the new album at the store. Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm show.

Never Hungover Again was recorded with friend and producer Joe Reinhardt in Hollywood's Lair studio and mixed by Tony Hoffer who is known for his work with Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83 and Phoenix. If there's a feeling to Never Hungover Again, says Barry, it's a feeling he can't quite pin down--some complex thing that's part anger and part sadness. It's the loneliness when you're surrounded by people and that lostness when everything you've wanted seems to be right in front of you. And if there's a single moment that defines Never Hungover Again, it's the way "The Jerk" ends with feedback and a chord ringing over Barry's last shout of "It all goes wrong!"--because despite the confusion and sorrow and resignation, it somehow sounds so right.

Joyce Manor will play FYF Fest on Saturday, August 23 in addition to a short run with Brand New. Then the band will embark on their first ever North American headlining tour in support of Never Hungover Again.
