No Joy in Vancouver at the start of the tour for their just-released album, More Faithful.

The follow-up to 2013’s Wait To Pleasure (which scored at 8 at pitchfork.com), More Faithful finds the Montreal band working with producer Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Chairlift, Lansing-Dreiden, Violens). Recording was split between Brooklyn and Costa Rica.

The group has also released a video for the song “Everything New”, featuring appearances by members of the bands Best Coast, Baths, King Tuff, Cold Showers, Soft Pack and Grooms.

Video – No Joy, “Everything New”:

The group features singer/guitarist Jasamine White-Gluz, guitarist Laura Lloyd, drummer Garland Hastings, and bassist Michael Farsky (formerly of Dirty Beaches’ live band).

The record is the band’s third full-length for the label Mexican Summer.
