MUSIC NEWS: Honey Joy Release New Track ‘Raising Boys’
Ahead of the release of their new album II on 4th September 2020 via Everything Sucks Music, Honey Joy have released their new single Raising Boys.
Speaking of the track, vocalist Meg Tinsley explains it’s about: “Seeing the most wonderful soft and compassionate human-being raised to be a man. And toxic masculinity destroying them.”
The tracks on the upcoming album were written in two halves, both when Meg was signed-off work due to her mental health, and when she had overcome her battles and was on a mission for self-love. II is “an exploration of the places your mind can go and a narrative of my experiences during those times,” she explains. Recorded over five days last year, at the now closed Music Land Studios in Haggerston, London with Simon Small (Apologies, I Have None, Cult Dreams, The Front Bottoms) the band had additional help on the release as guitarist Matt Tinsley reveals: “Our beloved pug dog Vinnie was on hand at each session to give creative advice to Simon when it was needed”.
