Birth Of Joy

Hyper Focus

Release Date: 02/16/2018 · Format: 2-LP (+download code) · Catalog-No: GRCD 933/GRLP 933

We're more than happy to announce that psychedelic rockers BIRTH OF JOY will release their 5th album entitled 'Hyper Focus' with Glitterhouse Records on February 16th, 2018.

Although 'Hyper Focus' was influenced by 60/70's Psychedelica and Blues-Rock, you won’t have the feeling being sucked into an old dusty Persian tapestry bought at your local thrift shop. Sure, there are psychotic jams, but with peppering their sound with a modern twist of Stoner, Grunge and Punk, the threesome instead creates a lip-smacking sound of their very own, described by Vive Le Rock (UK) as “triumphant”. “An organ that howls so psychedelically we fear it may be harmful to those who make direct contact” says Classic Rock Magazine (UK). The 1st single and title track of the album will be released December 8th: “Hyper Focus is about the constant stream of information and, above all, disinformation that is relentlessly bombarding us nowadays” says the band about the song.

The Dutch trio has toured Europe relentlessly and played 450 shows during the last 3 years only, including festivals like The Great Ecape (UK), Bobital (FR), Montreux Jazz (CH), Pinkpop (NL) or Orange Blossom Special (DE) just to name a few. BIRTH OF JOY was nominated for an Edison Award in 2014, played headline shows in Egypt, Turkey, South Africa and Russia and supported British rockstars MUSE in 2016. They are without any doubt a proven live sensation and one of the hardest working bands on this planet.

We're very stoked to release 'Hyper Focus' worldwide on February 16th! The release show will take place at Paradiso, Amsterdam on 02/16/2018 followed by extensive touring. For fans of All Them Witches, Kadavar, Blues Pills, Motorpsycho and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
