Joywave is an indie rock band from Rochester, New York that formed in 2010. The group consists of Daniel Armbruster (vocals), Joseph Morinelli (guitar), Benjamin Bailey (keyboards), and Paul Brenner (drums).
The band has released their sophomore album Content and it is a heteronym that plays on the theme of CONtent vs ConTENT. The album is produced by Joywave’s own Daniel Armbruster and Sean Donnelly, mixed by Rich Costey, who has worked with artists like Haim, Foster The People, Vampire Weekend and At The Drive In.
Always pushing the creative envelope, Joywave released a mixtape 77777 (2011), their critically-acclaimed EP Koda Vista (2012), a second mixtape 88888 (2013), the How Do You Feel? EP (2014), a full-length debut album titled How Do You Feel Now? (2015) and in 2016 an entire album featuring alternative versions of their song “Destruction” called SWISH, which is a take on Kanye’s short-lived album title and more precisely the band titled it SWISH in response to the similarity between their 2015 tour art & “Destruction” ad campaign & The Life Of Pablo album art. They collaborated with Big Data on “Dangerous” which hit #1 at alternative radio, while “Somebody New”, “Destruction” and the track “Tongues” (feat KOPPS) off their album How Do You Feel Now? topped the US alternative radio charts as well.
Along with Joywave’s previous music, they have an impressive touring history to say the least. They’ve toured with our friends from Foals, The Killers, Brandon Flowers, Metric, Silversun Pickups, Bleachers, St. Lucia. They have also played stages like Coachella, Lollapalooza (US & Berlin), Reading & Leeds, Okeechobee, Osheaga, Hangout and Bumbershoot.
