Joywave have announced their fall headlining tour, Thanks. Thanks For Coming 2017. Kicking off on November 11th in their hometown of Rochester, NY, the band will be joined by The Aces as well as Maybirdand The Demos on select dates. See a full list of tour dates here. Joywave released their brand new album Content earlier this year viaHollywood Records/Cultco Musichere. The band is currently wrapping a national tour supporting Young The Giant and Cold War Kids.
Their latest album Content is a heteronym that plays on the theme of CONtent vs ConTENT. The album is produced by Joywave’s own Daniel Armbruster & Sean Donnelly and mixed by Rich Costey, who has worked with artists like Haim, Foster The People, Vampire Weekend and At The Drive In. Joywave’s first single “It’s A Trip” is quickly closing in on the Top 20 at alternative radio while the video has over 1.4M views.
Joywave’s touring history is impressive to say the least; they’ve toured with Foals, The Killers, Brandon Flowers, Metric, Bleachers, and performing at some of the biggest festivals Coachella, Lollapalooza (US & Berlin), Reading & Leeds, Okeechobee, Osheaga, Hangout and Bumbershoot.
Always pushing the creative envelope, Joywave released a mixtape 77777 (2011), their critically-acclaimed EP Koda Vista (2012), a second mixtape 88888 (2013), the How Do You Feel? EP (2014), a full-length debut album titled How Do You Feel Now? (2015) and in 2016 an entire album featuring alternative versions of their song “Destruction” calledSWISH, a take on Kanye’s short-lived album title and more precisely the band titled it SWISH in response to the similarity between their 2015 tour art & “Destruction” ad campaign & The Life Of Pablo album art. They collaborated with Big Data on “Dangerous” which hit #1 at alternative radio, while “Somebody New”, “Destruction” and the track “Tongues” (feat KOPPS) off their album How Do You Feel Now? topped the US alternative radio charts as well.
Joywave is vocalist Daniel Armbruster, guitarist Joseph Morinelli, keyboardist Benjamin Bailey and drummer Paul Brenner.
