California noiseniks Joyce Manor have announced details of new full-length release, ‘Songs From Northern Torrance’.

The record - set for release digitally this Friday (29th May) and physically on 18th September - will feature ten tracks recorded between 2008 and 2010, including ‘House Warning Party’, shared today.

“A lot of early Joyce Manor songs are actually leftovers from earlier bands, but ‘House Warning Party‘ was the first song I wrote specifically for Joyce Manor,” explains vocalist Barry Johnson. “I was working at the Long Beach Aquarium and the first line of the song came to me while I was perusing the vending machine on my break. They had some LifeSavers and on the packaging it said ‘five flavors’ and the opening line of the song just popped in my head. The rest of the lyrics came effortlessly and the song was fully written in about the time it takes to listen to. Listening to it ten years later it sounds young and inspired and I’m impressed at how much of a story I was able to tell in just over a minute.”

The tracklisting is:

1. House Warning Party
2. Fuck Koalacaust
3. DFHP?
4. Danke Schoen
5. Who Gave You A Baby
6. Constant Nothing
7. Done Right Discount Flooring
8. 5 Beer Plan
9. Chumped
10. Leather Jacket

Joyce Manor released fifth studio album ‘Million Dollars To Kill Me’ in 2018.
