Cola Concerts Adds Mt. Joy to Spring Lineup at the Columbia Speedway Entertainment Center

Mt. Joy is the latest band to join the Cola Concerts spring lineup. Blending folk and rock, Mt. Joy will be celebrating the release of their second album, Rearrange Us. The May 15th show adds to a talented lineup for Cola Concerts, which includes shows by Greg Gutfeld (4/18), Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires (4/24), Wynonna Judd (4/25), and Shovels and Rope (5/1). Tickets for Mt. Joy go on sale Friday, February 12 at 10:00 AM. Fans can get early access to tickets by signing up for the Cola Concerts Speedway Club at ColaConcerts.com.

When Mt. Joy (singer / guitarist Matt Quinn, guitarist Sam Cooper, bassist Michael Byrnes, drummer Sotiris Eliopoulos, and keyboardist Jackie Miclau) came together to record their sophomore album Rearrange Us, the band was in rough shape - adrift in a miasma of situational and romantic agony, digging themselves out of relationships that had soured in the harsh light of a life permanently spent in a van somewhere between Stockton and Peoria.

As band members coped with relationships that had literally disintegrated days before the beginning of sessions for Rearrange Us, they found comfort in their makeshift family of circus runaways - and, in suffering together, set about writing an album that looked themselves in the mirror and asked, "Are we all right?"

The resulting project, Rearrange Us, is the sound of a band growing into themselves both musically and personally. Matt Quinn's songwriting is at once more painterly and less precise, like perfectly rendered vignettes from a largely disjointed memory of a dream, as the band veers from folk-stomps to psychedelic reflections to gospel elegies with a well-honed verve - all to create a welcome salve to the transience of getting older and chasing a dream.
