JOY Announce New Single + Bath & Bristol Dates

Bath based four – piece, JOY are set to release a new single on the 13th of April 2018.

‘Seahorse’, self produced and recorded in their home town studio, is the follow up to their debut single ‘Tree’ which saw them receive critical acclaim locally and amass significant streams on Spotify on it’s release late last year. Available digitally at all major outlets, the new track recalls the dramatic and haunting yet bright guitar melodies of bands such as The Pixies, Wolf Alice and Helvetia.

Fully formed last year from the ashes of Bristol outfit Big Fish, the JOY line up of Toby Ijbema (vocals), Ale Invernizzi  (bass), Ben Roe (drums) and Calum Wotherspoon  (lead guitar) have spent the last twelve months writing, recording and honing a new sound. During this time, Toby was found busking by YouTube personality Stefan Michalak in an underpass and was featured on Michalak’s channel, which subsequently introduced the band to a wider audience and an influx of fans worldwide.

A truly exciting live band, JOY are building an ever growing fan base after making their live debut with a sold out show at the legendary Moles Club in Bath last year. They return to the venue to play a show on the 22nd of March, which is then followed by a date at Mothers Ruin in Bristol on the 11th of April. More dates will be announced in the very near future.




Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to a follow up single, JOY are also working on a documentary which is currently being filmed about the band and will be screened at a special event later this year.

    You might want to change the guitarist’s name to the correct spelling: Calum Wotherspoon. Otherwise great article, good to hear the boys are gaining traction.
