Video Premiere: "Easter Tuesday" by Joy Cleaner

Joy Cleaner
18 October 2018

Fresh off the success of their debut album, Total Hell (Jigsaw Records), North Jersey power-pop band Joy Cleaner has teamed up with Dromedary Records for an early autumn single. The band, featuring guitarist Joey Degroot, bassist Kyle Wilkerson and drummer Justin Grabosky, feature “wall-to-wall hooks” in the vein of such artists as Teenage Fanclub or The Lemonheads.

The single, “Easter Tuesday,” will be released on October 18 on cassette, digital and limited-edition, lathe-cut 7” to coincide with a brief Northeast U.S. tour with Algebra II. Dromedary, celebrating its 25th anniversary as a label, will be offering the single at its website via digital download, cassette, and a very small run of handmade, lathe-cut 7” square picture discs. (Though they’re not really discs if they’re square, right?) The cassettes will also be available directly from the band.

Coinciding with the single’s release, Joy Cleaner has graced us with this brand-spanking-new, DIY video! We’re fairly sure dedicated BT fans will love it. Cheers!
