New post-grunge band Sick Joy have announced their debut headline tour following the release of debut EP Amateurs, out now via SaySomething Records.
Supported by Upset and Kerrang! magazines – the latter declaring the band “a strong new presence in UK rock” – Sick Joy have already supported a sold out Feeder at Brixton Academy, sold out The Pearl Harts, Honeyblood at Bush Hall, and are set to play Newcastle’s Hit The North Festival in May.

Forming only in 2016, the UK’s Sick Joy started life in Newcastle before moving to Brighton to pursue their future. Their mix of lo-fi post-grunge and dirty noise-pop has already seen Sick Joy drawing attention and marks the band as ones to watch.
Bearing comparisons from Nirvana, Pixies, Arctic Monkeys and Oasis, Sick Joy’s first two singles ‘Stars’ (April 2017) and ‘Cat In A Bird Cage’ were released to acclaim and strong radio support, leading to the band’s signing with SaySomething Records. Their following single ‘Smiling Shame’ and new track ‘Senses’ has had support from Dork, Upset, BBC Radio 1, Kerrang! Radio, and Amazing Radio.
