LA pop-punk trio Joyce Manor have today shared their new single, Don’t Try. This is the band’s second offering since the announcement of upcoming album, 40oz To Fresno, that will be released on the 10th June via Epitaph Records. Accompanying to-the-point lyricism and a raw, honest vocal delivery, drummer Tony Thaxton (Motion City Soundtrack) integrates inventive drum patterns into the verses of Don’t Try that contrast flawlessly with the punchy hook.

Originally planning to take a small break from music, Joyce Manor brought their latest project, 40oz to Fresnoto life thanks to singer & guitarist Barry Johnson‘s desire to keep writing during quarantine. Produced by Rob Schnapf and mixed by Tony Hoffer with Tony Thaxton (Motion City Soundtrack) on drums, a sense of liberation lies at the core of this project. It’s strangely fitting that the title was taken from an auto-corrected text message about Sublime. Those types of happy accidents are all over 40oz. To Fresno and are worth the subsequent sonic hangover.

Since forming in 2008, the pop-punk group has proved time and time again that they capture listeners’ attention through their catchy yet thought provoking lyrics, and high energy shows. Although they have an established sound that reflects the energetic and gritty nature of the band which fans have come to expect, they push the limits by experimenting throughout the recording process. Joyce Manor will also be touring in Europe with The Menzingers and Sincere Engineer in October this year.
