WILMINGTON — Mt. Joy rocked Greenfield Lake Amphitheater last Thursday with opener Flipturn.
The five-piece indie band from L.A. is preparing to put out its third album, “Orange Blood,” slated to drop in June. The group is embarking on a tour promoting the release later this month, with three shows in Asheville. Its two other albums are a self-titled release from 2018 and “Rearrange us,” which dropped in 2020 and charted on the Billboard 200.
Matt Quinn sings and plays guitar alongside guitarist Sam Cooper. Sotiris Eliopoulos is on drums, Jackie Miclau on keys and Michael Byrnes plays bass.
Another up-and-coming indie band, Flipturn, opened for the group. The five-member ensemble got its start in a Fernandina Beach garage. Dillon Basse leads on vocals and rhythm guitar, while Tristan Duncan strums the lead guitar, Madeline Jarman plays bass, Mitch Fountain is on the synth and Devon VonBalson drums. Their debut album is coming out later this year, following their EPs “Heavy Colors” and “Something You Needed.”
