About this Artist

Ambient instrumental post-rock ensemble Joy Wants Eternity had their origin in a Seattle basement in fall 2003, as a response to an ad requesting interested parties for experimenting with the creation of instrumental walls of noise.

The end result was the five-piece of Emory Liu (drums), Salvador Huerta (guitar), Michael Sterling (guitar), Rob Thompson (guitar, Rhodes), and Daniel Salo (Rhodes, bass, guitar). Live, the band adds video and other media. In summer 2004, Joy Wants Eternity recorded their first EP, Must You Smash Your Ears Before You Learn to Listen with Your Eyes, officially issued in spring 2005. The band's first full-length, You Who Pretend to Sleep, was available by May 2007. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi
