Joyce Manor announce new album, Million Dollars to Kill Me, share tight, catchy title track: Stream

Joyce Manor have announced a new album, Million Dollars to Kill Me, which follows the band’s solid 2016 LP, Cody, and 2014’s breakthrough, Never Hungover Again. It arrives on September 21st.

Kurt Ballou produced the album, which was recorded at the Converge frontman’s own GodCity Studio, where the band slept on bunk beds upstairs. A press release notes that vocalist Barry Johnson’s lyrics center around “love, money, doubt, confusion, and the hope that persists despite it all.”

That’s apparent in the album’s title track, which combines searching, lived-in vocals with driving guitar riffs that evoke early Weezer. “She’s the only one who could take you to a pawn shop and sell you for twice what you’re worth,” Johnson sings. “Nobody tells you it hurts to be loved.”

Hear it below.
