On the heels of their “Kim” + “On A Farm” single package released last month on Never Grow Up Records, Philadelphia five-piece Joy Again announce a North American tour supporting Rostam this winter. Before they hit the road with Rostam, Joy Again will bring their kinetic live energy on a co-headlining tour with Furnsss, set to kick off on November 13th. See below for a full date listing.

Produced by long-time collaborator Caleb Laven (Frank Ocean’s Blonde & Endless), the “Kim” + “On A Farm” single package finds Joy Again honing their creative vision and propelling their artistic output beyond the underground. Emerging with an infectious new sound that truly finds them coming into their own, the band released their debut EP earlier this year which earned praise from the likes of FADER, NME, and DIY Magazine.

Founded in 2015 after its members met in boarding school, Joy Again released debut singles “Looking Out For You” and “How You Feel” on Mom + Pop (US) and Lucky Number (UK). Their vivid storytelling and seemingly effortless command of melody charmed the internet and saw them dubbed a “staple of the Philly basement scene” as they continued to garner attention on the international scale. The band has performed with the likes of Car Seat Headrest, Hinds, Daywave, and Hoops.

Be sure to catch Joy Again in a city near you and stay tuned for more as the band readies their debut full-length.
