Guitarist and vocalist Mykl Barton comments:
"I think it shows a kind of different vibe to us as a band. It brings out some influences that aren’t maybe as obviously prevalent in other songs. Its a bit of a Frankenstein’s monster too. Its the last piece of the puzzle in the E.P. The video tries to tie it all together, the whole journey, in its own way.
We’ve had a great time riding its wave, playing Brixton with Feeder was definitely a highlight. Some kind words in Kerrang too. Stumbler’s like that last bit of supermarket vodka in the house before you go out and cane it, just building to the headline tour in October.
I can’t wait to play Trees. Its always been my favourite alternative festival. The line ups are consistently great. Really looking forward to Jamie Lenman’s acoustic set, Fangclub, Turbowolf our buddies Demob Happy. There are too many to name. We’re stoked to be a part of it this year. Genuinely killer festival."
Sick Joy head out on their first headline tour in October; dates are as follows:
12.10.18 Manchester – Jimmys
13.10.18 Glasgow - The Garage
16.10.18 Newcastle – Think Tank

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.
Following a support slot with Honeyblood at Bush Hall, and their debut London headline show drawing a near sell-out crowd, Sick Joy were subsequently picked to support Feeder at Brixton Academy in March.
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 debut EP Amateurs drew support from Dork, Upset, Kerrang!, BBC Radio 1, Kerrang! Radio, and Amazing Radio.
