Sorority Noise // "Joy, Departed"

Today we're excited to announce Joy, Departed, the new record from Sorority Noise, set to be released June 16th. Pre-orders for the album will be available on May 12th, 2015 (sign up here to be notified when they do), alongside the premiere of the first single from the record. You can watch the Joy, Departed teaser video below, where some weird looking members of Sorority Noise talk about the writing process behind this brilliant new record.

The follow up to last year's debut record Forgettable (released by Broken World Media and StormChasers in the US, Dog Knights in the UK and Europe), Joy, Departed is a dynamic and thrilling step forward for Sorority Noise. One year, two music degrees and a whole lot of openness and expression went into the creation of this beautifully crafted record. With an album full of lovely orchestral swells, Weezer-esque guitar solos and cheery pop hits, the band shows off their versatility and talent on throughout the album, creating a perfect front to back record. The incredible sincerity frontman and lyricist Cameron Boucher puts into his songs is impressive — and when backed with this much musical talent, we're really excited to see where this year takes them.

The album's track listing and cover art are up now and the band has a pretty insane run of touring lined up in the coming months with Modern Baseball, Spraynard, The Weaks, Clique, Fireworks, Turnover, Motion City Soundtrack and The Spill Canvas — dates and info are below:
