After 97 shows all over Europe and North America in 2013 BIRTH OF JOY have already proven to be a true LIVE rock sensation! Besides creating catchy psychedelic 60/70’s-hooks spiced up with stoner, blues and rock&roll influences, this threesome is also master in invoking a primal emotion that lays hidden in many of us. The kind of emotion that craves to burst out when you experience something true, something real. Well, these guys are it, they ARE the real deal: sex, drugs and rock&roll! Blood, sweat and… ah, mostly alcohol!

Influenced by psychedelica, blues and steaming rock&roll this trio takes you back to the good old times of MC5, The Doors and even Pink Floyd. At the same time they introduce a modern twist influenced by stoner, grunge and punk and hence create their own sound! With a drum-player that could be John Bonham's son, an organist that harasses his instrument to death and a singer/guitarist that seems to be the power-incarnation of Jim Morrison, this band is bound to catapult psychedelic rock&roll back into our modern times with an energy you can’t resist!

The new album PRISONER was recorded and produced in November 2013 by Joris Wolff (e.g. De Staat, Within Temptation and Mister and Mississippi) and mastered by Brian Lucey (e.g. The Black Keys, Artic Monkeys, David Lynch and Dr. John).

Forget about all those indie hipster bands and prepare for some real sleeze&roll. These guys are it and will rock your socks off for sure!
