Joyce Manor - The Jerk music video

Joyce Manor’s new album Never Hungover Again was released yesterday. They premiered a music video for “The Jerk” on AV Club, which you can watch below too.

Never Hungover Again was recorded with friend and producer Joe Reinhardt in Hollywood’s Lair studio and mixed by Tony Hoffer who is known for his work with Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83 and Phoenix. If there’s a feeling to Never Hungover Again, says Barry, it’s a feeling he can’t quite pin down—some complex thing that’s part anger and part sadness. It’s the loneliness when you’re surrounded by people and that lostness when everything you’ve wanted seems to be right in front of you. And if there’s a single moment that defines Never Hungover Again, it’s the way “The Jerk” ends with feedback and a chord ringing over Barry’s last shout of “It all goes wrong!”—because despite the confusion and sorrow and resignation, it somehow sounds so right.

Joyce Manor will play FYF Fest on Saturday, August 23 in addition to a short run with Brand New. Then the band will embark on their first ever North American headlining tour in support of Never Hungover Again.
