With sounds of distortion and velvet melodies, Stabbing Joy hits hard with piercing lyrics and catchy riffs. A Charlottetown based band, the group consists of five members spanning from PEI to BC. Carrying a full roster of passive-aggressive, guitar-driven power pop tunes, Stabbing Joy is here to entertain the people and spark a smile. The music is not only loud with shrieking guitar riffs, but the lyricism is constantly bringing you in sweetly only to rip you to shreds with attitude.
Beginning with the single "Wicked Me" in 2015 to the EP "Loved It More Than You Could Ever Know" in 2017, Stabbing Joy brings inspiration from its beginnings as a 7-piece folk rock band to life with sharper guitars, louder drums, and pissed off lyrics. This college band has finally graduated into 20 year old, coffee shop worker angst.
