Based out of Torrance, California, Joyce Manor got its start in late 2008, conceived as the acoustic pop-punk duo of Barry Johnson (vocals, guitar) and Chase Knobbe (guitar). That idea didn't last long, however, and the band ultimately expanded. Joyce Manor released a split 7" with Summer Vacation in the fall of 2010; that same year the five-song Constant Headache demo surfaced as well. It was easy to hear the influence of Jawbreaker in Joyce Manor's music, and the group claimed other influences like early Weezer and Guided by Voices. The band's self-titled, full-length debut was released in 2011 and landed on many year-end best-of lists. Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired appeared in April 2012. ~ Corey Apar
