Mt Joy releases ‘Evergreen’

Song drops ahead of June 17th album release

On the heels of announcing their 2022 third full-length offering, Orange Blood, which is set to release on June 17th, Mt. Joy have released “Evergreen.” The track boasts upbeat guitar curls around a punk-y groove before colliding with an intoxicating refrain. The track’s accompanying music video stars The Office star Creed Bratton, a personal friend of the band who last fall, joined the band on stage at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles. In the video, Bratton sets off on a journey to prove it is never too late to chase what makes you happy.

“After I sat in and played with Mt. Joy at the Greek Theater we established a friendship, and I was thrilled when they invited me to act in their video,” Bratton shares. “Here it is, we had so much fun making it!”

“‘Evergreen’ is the shot of tequila on this record. It’s a love song about trusting what you have during times when the world seems to be changing faster than we can keep up. It’s hard, but I think the only times I’m truly happy are when I embrace the insanity around us and pound my chest just enough to believe that if we stick together, we’ve got all we need to make it to the other side,” shares the band’s Matt Quinn.

After signing with Island Records earlier this year, Mt. Joy released “Lemon Tree” which is currently Top 20 at AAA radio, followed by the colorful album title track, “Orange Blood.” The band also recently announced their US headlining Orange Blood 2022 Tour with special guests Grammy-nominated West Coast singer-songwriter Madison Cunningham, LA based indie-folk trio Wilderado, and The Brook & The Bluff. The trek will kick off in South Carolina on June 16th and make stops in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, and Dallas before wrapping in Austin, Texas on November 5th. The tour will follow their sold out spring run which included closing out SXSW to a crowd of 14k at Auditorium Shores last month.
