MUSIC NEWS: Sick Joy Announce Debut Album & Release Video For New Single ‘I’ve Got More Than I Need (And I Don’t Have Much)’
Sick Joy have announced their debut album WE’RE ALL GONNA F***ING DIE, due for release on 8th July 2022 via SO Recordings.
In light of the announcement, the band have released a video for their new single i’ve got more than i need (and i don’t have much).
“It came from a feeling of exasperation towards trying to process some things from my past that I’d been dealing with in damaging ways and realising it,” explains vocalist/guitarist Mykl Barton. “I didn’t have space in my head to be clever or dance around stuff lyrically, it was just emphatically – “this is what this is and I can see it now. Like, fuck, this is heavy and it hurts, but there’s a vein of fighting back flowing through it too”. It’s a flagship of the theme and message that runs through the album, this positive nihilism. It’s a linear story of the whole process I was going through, anger, sadness, doubt, fear and ultimately, hope and empowerment.”
WE’RE ALL GONNA F***ING DIE is available to pre-order and pre-save HERE.
