The Joyce Manor half of the split is formed of two re-workings of tracks from their 2012 album ‘Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired’. The first to be revealed is ‘Tame’, an adaptation of the track ‘See How Tame I Can Be’. The song is given a much punkier, classic Joyce Manor edge, when a slower and slightly sluggish version appeared on the full-length.
