|Today, Rochester’s innovative band Joywave reveal their official music video for “It’s A Trip!”, directed by GHOST + COW and shot on location in Miami. Together with make-up artist Ben Bornstein and the full crew, they created a stunning rendition of Joywave’s invigorating future. You can see “It’s A Trip!” HERE.
Last week, Joywave announced their sophomore studio album titled Content, released their first single ”It’s A Trip!” (stream HERE + download HERE). The quintet make their return to the live stage and will head out on tour with Young The Giant and Cold War Kids at the start of August.
Content, which has a playful double meaning, is produced by Joywave’s Daniel Armbruster & Sean Donnelly and mixed by Rich Costey and will be released on Hollywood Records/Cultco Music on 7.28 (pre-order HERE). Last month, they shared the title track “Content” HERE with their fans. The visual was shot on a vintage Super 8 and filmed on location at Kodak Tower, Rochester, NY.
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” called SWISH, 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 top of US alternative radio as well.
Joywave’s touring history is impressive to say the least; they’ve toured with Foals, The Killers, Brandon Flowers, Metric, Silversun Pickups, Bleachers, St. Lucia etc and played at festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza (US & Berlin), Reading & Leeds, Okeechobee, Osheaga, Hangout and Bumbershoot etc.
TV shows like Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers have welcomed the ingenious band and publications such at Rolling Stone, Billboard, Spin, Entertainment Weekly have praised their music and live performances.
Joywave is vocalist Daniel Armbruster, bassist Sean Donnelly, guitarist Joseph Morinelli, keyboardist Benjamin Bailey and drummer Paul Brenner.
