No Joy Announce 'Pastel And Pass Out' Ep And November 2013 UK Dates

Montreal's No Joy follow up their sophomore LP 'Wait to Pleasure' with 'Pastel and Pass Out', a new 12" to coincide with their upcoming European winter tour. Engineered by Jorge Elbrecht (who also worked on 'Wait To Pleasure'), the EP finds the trio shredding through a similar soundscape: striking a balance between the blistering walls of noise they're renowned for, with airy, expansive atmospherics that allow the songs to breathe and the melodies to seep through.

Opener 'Last Boss' showcases this dynamic perfectly, with Jasamine White-Gluz's airy vocals dancing through the clear space of the verses, before the thick chorus guitars pummel through. 'Star Child is Dead's buzz-saw guitars ascend to a druggy, blissed-out peak, whilst 'Second Spine' might be the band's poppiest song yet: comparatively stripped back, allowing for the gorgeous melody to (sun)burst through.

The 'Pastel and Pass Out' EP fs due for release on the 4th November via Mexican Summer
