(May 13, 2022 – New York, NY) On the heels of announcing their 2022 third full-length offering, Orange Blood, which is set to release on June 17th, Mt. Joy have released “Evergreen.” The track boasts upbeat guitar curls around a punk-y groove before colliding with an intoxicating refrain. The track’s accompanying music video stars The Office star Creed Bratton, a personal friend of the band who last fall, joined the band on stage at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles. In the video, Creed sets off on a journey to prove it is never too late to chase what makes you happy. Watch the video BELOW

"After I sat in and played with Mt. Joy at the Greek Theater we established a friendship, and I was thrilled when they invited me to act in their video. Here it is, we had so much fun making it!" – Creed Bratton

"Evergreen is the shot of tequila on this record. It’s a love song about trusting what you have during times when the world seems to be changing faster than we can keep up. It’s hard, but I think the only times I’m truly happy are when I embrace the insanity around us and pound my chest just enough to believe that if we stick together, we’ve got all we need to make it to the other side." – Matt Quinn

"Getting another opportunity to work with Mt. Joy was a real treat, and adding Creed Bratton to the mix was just the cherry on top. Working with Creed was everything you’d imagine it would be. He was the life of the party on set and elevated the entire concept. Conceptually, the idea was to watch as our protagonist attempts (and repeatedly fails) to find something that will give his life a sense of purpose. Eventually, by combining the learnings from all of his past failures, he finally discovers something that is evergreen." - Francis Galluppi (Director)

Kicking off their forthcoming album, Mt. Joy released “Lemon Tree” which was hailed as “a next-level song” by NPR and is currently Top 20 at AAA radio, followed by the colorful album title track, “Orange Blood.” The band also recently announced their US Headlining “Orange Blood” 2022 Tour (with special guests Grammy®-nominated West Coast singer-songwriter Madison Cunningham, L.A. based indie-folk trio Wilderado, and The Brook & The Bluff).

The Philadelphia quintet—Matt Quinn [vocals, guitar], Sam Cooper [guitar], Sotiris Eliopoulos [drums], Jackie Miclau [keys, piano], and Michael Byrnes [bass]— take their name from the quiet rural town in southwest Pennsylvania, about four hours from their Philadelphia base. Forming in 2016, they made their mark two years later when their self-titled Mt. Joy debut album spun off "Silver Lining," an uplifting power ballad that went to #1 at AAA radio (Billboard Adult Alternative Airplay) and has eclipsed over 120 million Spotify streams to date. Their second album, Rearrange Us (2018) drew widespread critical raves. Over the past four years Mt. Joy has amassed over half a billion streams and have earned acclaim from NPR, Billboard, Rolling Stone, The Line of Best Fit, and more. The band has performed at a variety of festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo and has toured with The Lumineers, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, The Revivalists, and The Head and The Heart. Additionally, the band has performed on Stephen Colbert, CBS Morning, Samantha Bee, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, and Conan..
