JOYCE MANOR [USA]
Joyce Manor was conceived in the back of a car over a cheap bottle of booze in the Disneyland parking lot – the kind of beginning that California dreams are really made of. Co-founders Barry Johnson (guitar, vocals) and Chase Knobbe (guitar) started a power violence band named after an apartment complex that Johnson would walk by every day. Caught off guard, Joyce Manor was invited to play a show so they scrambled to scheme a plan. Joyce Manor made their debut as an acoustic duo but soon discovered that “playing loud is just more fun,” according to Johnson. They rallied Kurt Walcher to play drums and welcomed old buddy Matt Ebert on bass. The new Joyce Manor attacked their songs with enthusiasm, neurotic precision, and discovered beauty in simplicity along the way. Their new record Never Hung Over Again captures a complex feeling in 10 precise songs that is part sadness, part loneliness, part anger even when things seem to be going okay. With some of the saddest lyrics you’d ever shout along to from the front row, Never Hungover Again is heartbroken pop-punk perfection.
CHEAP GIRLS [USA]
Cheap Girls have been a band since the spring of 2007. band was started with simple intentions of playing simple and loud rock songs. A 3-piece, the members are Adam Aymor (guitar), Ben Graham (drums), and Ian Graham (vocals and bass guitar).
