New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Portland-bred sister trio Joseph announce their new album 'Good Luck, Kid,' set for September 13th release via ATO Records. Following 2016's 'I'm Alone, No You're Not,' which was hailed as "an appealing mix of swoony delicacy and punchy anthems" by NPR Music, the new album is a road movie in album form, an odyssey at turns emotional, existential, and entirely literal. With their intimate storytelling and restless intensity, Natalie Schepman and her sisters Allison and Meegan Closner detail that journey in songs that careen and sprawl and often soar, ultimately spinning a narrative of life-changing transformation.

The exhilarating first single "Fighter" is out today. An intense, compact cut with serious emotional punch, "Fighter" immediately proves the transcendent power of sisterly connection, while also speaking to a nearly disastrous discord.
"The song's about how our band almost broke up," explains Natalie. "It's the story of the three of us wanting different things and dealing with that conflict, and eventually deciding to just keep going."

In the making of 'Good Luck, Kid' Joseph pushed beyond the dreamy folk of their debut album with ATO Records, embracing a grittier, more dynamic sound. The 13-song collection was produced by Christian "Leggy" Langdon (Meg Myers, Charlotte OC) and the result brims with thick drums and lustrous guitars, heavy grooves and radiant melodies. Despite the bolder sonic palette, 'Good Luck, Kid' remains centered on the band's crystalline vocal work, including the otherworldly harmonies that suggest a near-telepathic connection among sisters.
"The through-line of the album is this idea of moving into the driver's seat of your own life—recognizing that you're an adult now, and everything's up to you from this moment on," Natalie said. "You're not completely sure of how to get where you need to go, and you don't have any kind of a map to help you. It's just the universe looking down on you like, 'Good luck, kid.'"

Joseph will head out on a 20+ date tour this Fall, starting on the eve of the new album's release and headlining their biggest rooms to date. See below for a full list of dates.

Joseph has partnered with CID Entertainment to offer VIP Packages on tour this fall. VIP Packages include a ticket with early venue entry and access to a special pre-show event including a meet & greet, private performance, and Q&A with Joseph. For more information, please visit

Pre-sale "Fan Club" tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 10th at 10 am local time and Spotify pre-sale of 'Good Luck, Kid' goes on sale Thursday, July 11th at 10 pm local time. Password for both pre-sales is "fighter."

Choosing their name in deference to their grandfather Jo, and the tiny Oregon town of Joseph where he lived, Natalie Schepman and her two twin sisters Allison and Meegan Closner, grew up in a musical household (their dad was a jazz singer and drummer, their mom a theater teacher), but didn't sing together until just a few years ago. Joseph officially formed in 2014 when Natalie, an aspiring performer looking for a creative jolt, asked her sisters to form a band together.

They quickly discovered their gift for songwriting and vocal alchemy and began cultivating a devoted fan base playing secret house party gigs before signing with ATO Records. Since then, Joseph has been named a 2016 Spotify Spotlight artist, toured with James Bay and Amos Lee, performed on Ellen, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show, CBS This Morning Saturday, "Later" with Jools Holland and prestigious festival stages like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Outside Lands.
