New Orleans’ Joystick have consistently been one of the best ska-punk bands around for a while now, and their new single “Boxes” is an immediate reminder of that. It’s off their upcoming Dwell EP, which follows their great 2021 album I Can’t Take It Anymore and comes out November 14 via Bad Time Records (pre-order). It’s catchy, it’s hard-hitting, it’s pretty much everything you want from ska-punk. Listen and watch the Jeff VanGerwen-directed video below.
