American punk rock band Joyce Manor is from Torrance, California and consists of Barry Johnson, Matt Ebert, Chase Knobbe and Kurt Walcher.
Joyce Manor originally started as a dup group in 2008, with vocalist and guitarist Barry Johnson and guitarist Chase Knobbe. The name "Joyce Manor" came from the name of apartment building by Johnson's house, which they thought of while at Disneyland. After being joined by drummer Kurt Walcher and bassist/ back-up vocalist Matt Ebert, Joyce Manor released a split 7" with Summer Vacation in the fall of 2010.
In 2010 the band also joined 6131 Records and in 2011 released their self-titled, full-length debut album. The album did well with critics with Punknews naming it the 2011 Album of the Year, which helped them gain an even bigger underground following. For the sophomore album, “Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired,” Joyce Manor made the move over to Asian Man Records in 2012. The album contains a cover of The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star." Also in 2012, the band released another split record, this time with Big Kids Split EP. On 22 July 2014 Joyce Manor released their third album with Epitaph Records entitled “Never Hungover Again.” The ten-track album featured Hop Along’s Frances Quinlan on the cover. Aside from gaining popularity over their music, the band also garnered attention for their stance against stage diving, having interrupted several sets to deter stage divers.
