    On June 9th, Montreal shoegaze outfit No Joy will return with new album More Faithful. Due out through Mexican Summer, the follow-up to 2013’s Wait To Pleasure was recorded in Brooklyn and Costa Rica, and features production by Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift).

    A press release describes the 11-track effort as an album that “bears the fruit of a band that has refined its work ethic in the gulf of time between recording sessions,” adding, “The outcome – a juxtaposition of unrest and calm, beauty and chaos, truth and fantasy, in the throes of dimed amps and hair-whipping guitar goddess rock music – is as unwavering as ever.”

    In anticipation, the band’s let loose a dreamy single called “Everything New”. Listen in below.

    01. Remember Nothing
    02. Everything New
    03. Hollywood Teeth
