TMJ Tours Once More!

TMJ Returns To The Stage!

We’re going to celebrate the upcoming release of the next Too Much Joy album by playing a few shows — our first in 15 years. We’re dubbing this the Mistakes Will Be Made mini-tour, and we’ll be playing songs from throughout our career. Here’s what’s been booked so far:

  • Thursday October 27th: Jammin Java, Washington, DC
  • Sunday, October 30th: Mercury Lounge, New York, NY (presale code: MISTAKES)
  • Tuesday, November 1: Sonia, Boston, MA

Note that, while we may fill in some shows between those (let us know if your tri-state-area Halloween party needs a house band!), these will likely be our only live dates in 2022 — we do not expect to get north of Boston, west of Philly, or south of DC this year. So if you’re inclined to see us, please click the links above to buy tickets for one of those shows ASAP — the more tickets we sell, the more likely we are to get other shows later on (we may even be able to add a second show in some or all of the cities above if they sell out quickly).

The abum, if you haven’t heard, will be called All These Fucking Feelings, and is coming out October 21st on Propeller Sound Recordings. Brooklyn Vegan just premiered the LP’s first track, “We Yell at 8,” if you’d like to hear it.

We look forward to sweating on all of you soon!

June’s Donor Single

Another month, another exclusive track for donors to our IndieGoGo campaign. This one’s called “What’s Good For The Banks.”

It’s got two B-sides, the first of which is “Dick-Punching Foe of the Patriarchy,” a song that was commissioned by Kristen Berg, who told us that’s how friends describe her.

The third track is “The Otter’s Return,” which only exists because donor Ellen Bashore asked for a sequel to “The Otter Song.” She said her original plan was to have us compose a song about her daughter Zoe, but Zoe was not keen on that idea. We can’t imagine why. Zoe’s reluctance gets a shout-out in the tune, because the song’s all about telling the truth through fiction.
