Dwarf Mountain Alphabet Available Now!
Help Joy Electric produce their first independant album!
After eighteen years and 20+ releases, Joy Electric is looking to record it's first full length independent project. Grateful for 18 years on Tooth and Nail Records, we're seeking your help to fund our newest work, "Dwarf Mountain Alphabet", a concept in the making for nearly three years. We will handle the bulk of the programming and production in our personal studio - eepsociety - then move to a larger, analog equipped facility for mixing and mastering. Artwork will include the kind of visionary, high art, conceptual sleeve designs that fans have come to expect and enjoy.
We're excited to offer some unique and personal options for your pledges and grateful for all your support through the years. We hope you'll jump on board to help us complete what we feel is Joy E's finest work.
