Welsh band The Joy Formidable will be rocking out in a city near you this Spring. The US tour will begin in mid-March in Atlanta, GA, and the band will work their way across the states, culminating in a New York City show at the end of April. On their way, they will make a stop at The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 15th. The full list of tour dates is below.
The Joy Formidable will be releasing their new album, The Big Roar, on March 15 via Canvasback/Atlantic Records. In the UK, the album will be released on January 24. This album is the band’s sophomore effort after their 2009 debut A Balloon Called Moaning, which was named one of the 10 Best Records You Might Have Missed in 2010 by SPIN magazine.
The band produced The Big Roar themselves – with help from engineer Neak Menter – and traveled to Los Angeles in summer of 2010 to mix it with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, Glasvegas). A single from those sessions, “Austere,” is out now. You can watch the music video for “Austere” here.
