Sick Joy

“A scuzzy affair reminiscent of 90s alt-rock hits” – Dork
“A taut, visceral burner, reminiscent of early Mudhoney with a pop touch, a snappy three-minute nugget of unbridled fury.” – Clash Mag

Brighton trio Sick Joy describe their music as ‘heavy pop’ and look to harness the power of music’s golden decade by blending their mix of hooky, poppy grunge with three chords and verve to boot.

The band have had a great start to the year, which has seen the band winning over new fans as they played with Dinosaur Pile-Up, Demob Happy and Pagan, as well as playing killer sets at The Great Escape and This Is Tomorrow festival.

This Autumn the band will tour throughout the country including festival slots at Neighbourhood, SWN and Live At Leeds plus they’ve garnered support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, Spotify, Kerrang!, BBC Music Introducing, Amazing Radio and Radio X.

Plus support on the night TBC.
