Their new single is their third release of the year, following the tracks Turn Me Up and Painkiller. 

Sick Joy released their debut album WE’RE ALL GONNA F***ING DIE, last year.  Speaking on their debut album vocalist and guitarist Mykl explained: “For me, that title is 

a positive.

“I realised, ‘it’s going to be over one day, man. So do whatever the f**k you’re gonna do, and have a good time.

“Don’t let fear decide where you’re going to go. We’re all going to die. So get out and kill it, man.”
