Bologna, Italy’s JOYCUT, named for the conceptual conjunction between the song ‘Joey’ from Nick Drake and Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut, was formed in 2001. This post-‐rock, dark-‐wave outfit weaves powerful sonic moments using electronic melodies and percussion with found objects from the urban landscape. Often experimental but always accessible, JoyCut have found a loyal fanbase in Italy and the UK as well as most of Europe. Having opened and toured with such bands as The Editors, Art Brut, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire and Sebadoh, the trio is poised to win over American fans on their first proper US Tour in February and March of 2014 (a mini tour happened in October 2013). The tour will be in support of their third album, 2013’s PiecesOfUsWereLeftOnTheGround (released on Italy’s largest record label IRMA) and centered around their selection for South By Southwest, one of just three Italian bands to be selected thus far! For fans of; Fuck Buttons, The Cure, Joy Division, A Place To Bury Strangers, Godspeed You Black Emperor.
Opening the night will be DIAMOND BONES and AIR MARSHALL LANDING.
