The new post-grunge rockers will be heading out on their debut headline tour in October.
Following the release of debut EP Amateurs,which is out now via SaySomething Records, Sick Joy are hitting the road this autumn.
The trio have already supported a sold-out Feeder at O2 Academy Brixton, sold out The Pearl Harts, Honeyblood at Bush Hall, and are set to play Newcastle’s Hit The North Festival in May.
Formed only in 2016, the UK’s Sick Joy started life in Newcastle before moving to Brighton to pursue their future. Their mix of lo-fi post-grunge and dirty noise-pop has already seen Sick Joy drawing attention and marks the band as ones to watch.
Bearing comparisons from Nirvana, Pixies, Arctic Monkeys and Oasis, Sick Joy’s first two singles Stars (April 2017) and Cat In A Bird Cage were released to acclaim and strong radio support, leading to the band’s signing with SaySomething Records.
