Joyce Manor Announce New LP “Million Dollars To Kill Me” & Share Title Track

On September 21st, Joyce Manor will release their fifth full-length effort, Million Dollars to Kill Me via Epitaph Records. The album follows 2016’s critically lauded release Cody.

Today, Joyce Manor have shared a lyric video for the title track from Million Dollars to Kill Me. With its Britpop-esque hooks and driving guitar riffs, “Million Dollars to Kill Me” centers on Joyce Manor’s understated-yet-poignant lyrics (e.g., “Nobody tells you it hurts to be loved”).

Produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou, Million Dollars to Kill Me came to life at Ballou’s own GodCity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts. During the recording process, Joyce Manor guitarist/vocalist Barry Johnson, guitarist Chase Knobbe, bassist Matt Ebert, and new drummer Pat Ware slept right upstairs in bunk beds. “Kinda felt like camp,” Johnson notes. Additionally, Million Dollars to Kill Me was mixed by Andrew Scheps (Weezer, AFI, Green Day).
