Sick Joy are back with a vengeance, releasing their first new music since their debut album ‘WE’RE ALL GONNA F***ING DIE’.
Titled ‘Painkiller’, lead singer Mykl Barton explains that the song is “about turning the anger, that’s normally directed at myself, when I fall into old habits and behaviours, back out to the reasons and life experiences that sewed them into my life. I can see this survival method is flawed, but I don’t hate myself, I just hate you.”

‘Painkiller’ is released ahead of the band’s forthcoming UK tour, celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Independent Venue Week, kicking off on January 30th in Chelmsford, followed by dates in Winchester, Bournemouth, Lancaster and Bedford, before concluding on February 5th in Wolverhampton.
