SICK JOY – DISSOLVE ME
Sick Joy return with new single ‘Dissolve Me’, a short, sharp burst of relentless, sludgy energy. Cutting together malign heaviness with acidic melody then tying into place with the reigns of contagious pop, Sick Joy’s ‘noise-pop’ blood is dirtied with echoes of Pixies and Nirvana. Although birthed in Newcastle, Sick Joy moved south to Brighton and played their first show to a sold out Patterns with fellow north-to-south Brighton bands Demob Happy and Tigercub. The band kicked off 2018 by headlining and selling out Camden Assembly as part of ‘Spotlight Showcase’ events and confirmed supports with the likes of Feeder, Tigercub, Honeyblood, Hell Is For Heroes and appearances at Camden Rocks and 2000 Trees Festivals. After being awarded the Help Musicians and Pledge Music’s ‘Emerging Artists Fund’, Sick Joy’s debut EP ‘Amateurs’ landed in March 2018, which saw singles ‘Smiling Shame’, ‘Senses’ and ‘Stumbler’ achieve support from the likes of Radio 1, Spotify,Kerrang, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and Radio X. The release coincided with a sold out show at Green Door Store in Brighton which lead to the band signing to X-Ray Touring and a full tour announcement in October 2018.
