Joy Wants Eternity is a five piece post-rock band from Seattle. The band has drawn comparisons to Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai in album reviews[1] with its melodic passages and equal parts ambience through heavily effected guitar. The Joy Wants Eternity song „Existences Rust“ was featured in an episode of television show CSI: Miami[2] and their song „You are the Vertical, You are the Horizon“ was featured on radio talk show Sound Opinions[3]. The band has played multiple shows with post-rock bands Caspian, Beware of Safety, and Seattle’s own You.May.Die.In.The.Desert. The band’s current label is XTAL Records[4

Formed in 2003, the original 15 piece lineup experimented with walls of sound and eventually pared down to a five piece before its first show. The band’s first release came in 2005 with a self-released EP „Must You Smash Your Ears Before You Learn To Listen With Your Eyes“. After a 90.3 KEXP-FM live performance, the band went in the studio to record their full length debut with the production assistant from the show, Andy Boyd[5]. Released in May 2007 on local collective label Beep Repaired [6], the album „You Who Pretend to Sleep“ received national attention with radio airplay and reviews. Silent Ballet, an instrumental rock online zine, listed it as #19 of the top 50 instrumental releases of 2007 worldwide.[7] Japanese label XTAL Records picked up the band’s release in 2008. After a US tour in 2008, the band began working on a new album, which is still pending as of January 2010.
