NEW ALBUM “POSSESSION” RELEASE MARCH 13

NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR ON SALE NOW 

NEW SINGLE “HALF YOUR AGE” OUT NOW

Joywave have announced their upcoming third album, Possession. Recorded and produced at the band’s studio in Rochester, NY, by frontman Daniel Armbruster and mixed by Dan Grech-Marguerat (The Killers, Liam Gallagher, Lana Del Rey,) Possession will include previous released songs, “Blank Slate,” “Obsession,” “Like A Kennedy” and their new single, “Half Your Age

The album title is a reference to control and the loss of it. The 12-song collection speaks to the noise surrounding us. “Our heads are spinning. Every day is crazier than the last. Every screen we walk by is shouting at us, demanding our undivided attention. Control over our own lives is constantly under siege,” notes Armbruster. Possession  explores these themes at both a societal and personal level, ultimately encouraging listeners to zoom out and see the big picture. Continuing with the band’s creative use of noteworthy samples and field recordings, Possession is woven together with audio from Voyager’s Golden Record (launched by NASA in 1977). Curated by Dr. Carl Sagan and affixed to the front of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, the disc was designed to convey a basic understanding of humanity to intelligent lifeforms in far corners of the universe and was also the inspiration for the album artwork.
