California emo-tinged punk rockers Joyce Manor have announced their sixth album, 40 oz. to Fresno, which is due out June 10 via Epitaph. Coinciding with the announcement is new single "Gotta Let It Go" and an accompanying video.

In keeping with Joyce Manor tradition, the song is an immensely catchy, sub-two-minute blast of '90s-era alt-punk, with vocalist Barry Johnson's elastic voice jumping effortlessly from sweet falsetto to throaty screaming.

According to a statement by the band, the new album reminds them of their early tours "drinking a 40 in the van on a night drive blasting Guided By Voices and smoking cigarettes the whole way to Fresno."

40 oz. to Fresno is produced by Rob Schnapf, who helmed the boards for their 2016 release Cody. It's Joyce Manor's first full-length album since 2018's Million Dollars to Kill Me.
