Joyce Manor have shared “Don’t Try“, the second offering from their upcoming album 40 oz To Fresno, out June 10th via Epitaph Records. “Don’t Try” follows the energetic lead single, “Gotta Let It Go,” which was released last month. Listen to the punchy, lyrically honest new track now below.
Fans can pre-order/pre-save 40 oz to Fresno now HERE.
Although the band originally planned to take a small break from music, Joyce Manor brought their latest project 40 oz to Fresno to life thanks to singer/guitarist Barry Johnson’s desire to keep writing during quarantine. Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Tokyo Police Club, Joyce Manor’s ‘Cody’,) mixed by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix) with Tony Thaxton of Motion City Soundtrack on drums, a sense of liberation lies at the core of this project. It’s strangely fitting that the title was taken from an auto-corrected text message about Sublime. Those types of happy accidents are all over 40 oz. to Fresno and are worth the subsequent sonic hangover.
Joyce Manor are currently in the midst of a run of spring tour dates. Remaining shows are listed below.
