Day Wave share “Stuck” video featuring Mark Hoppus

A punk, a podcast host, an appreciator of the octopus – Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus is many things. Thankfully for us, he is also a fan of Day Wave. The two connected on Twitter after “Drag” appeared on Beats 1 and somehow Jackson convinced Mark to appear in one of his music videos.

And here’s that video, premiered this morning over on Pitchfork. Inspired by this viral YouTube video – “Fr. Roderick watches the Star Wars trailer” (which you should def watch first for context and a few lols) – Jackson teamed up with director Ryan Baxley (FIDLAR, Twin Peaks, Kate Nash) to produce a similar reaction video for “Stuck.” It’s pretty captivating: there’s space boobs, a drunken grizzly bear, and latent existential meaning.

So sit back, relax, take off your pants and jacket and watch the new video to “Stuck.”

Birth Announcement: the sophomore EP – Hard to Read – from Daywave is out today! It’s .3 lbs and 12 inches of dreamy joy. It’s also packaged with last year’s Headcase and you can buy both EPs together on vinyl over at the GJ store. What can we say? We’re proud parents.

A few more updates since we have you here: Day Wave is heading out on tour! And the tour is huge (seriously, weighty). The “Headcase/Hard To Read World Tour” will include tour dates across North America, Europe, and Australia. Check the full schedule in the tour section.

And in case you were sleeping while Day Wave drenched the stage at Last Call With Carson Daly in sun-soaked melodies, you can watch him perform “Drag” and “Stuck” over on NBC’s website.

Day Wave announces “Hard to Read EP”, shares first single “Gone”

Today we welcome Oakland, California’s Day Wave to the family. On March 4th, we’ll be releasing Hard To Read EP, the follow-up to the self-released 2015 Headcase EP. The FADER has the first taste of new music, “Gone,” right now. Pre-order the EP on iTunes to get an immediate download of the tune.

Despite building quite the loyal following since its release – KCRW, Stereogum, XMU, and Mark Hoppus(?!!) are all devout fans – the Headcase EP was never available physically. But we at Grand Jury are here to fix that, and have collected both Headcase and the new Hard To Read on a double EP, which will be available in stores on March 4th on both CD and 12″ vinyl. Physical pre-orders will be available soon.
