The Joy Formidable in Boston!
The Joy Formidable’s newest album Wolf’s Law was released a few days ago, out via Canvasback Music / Atlantic Records. Wolf’s Law is the second album from The Joy Formidable and the follow-up to their breakthrough debut The Big Roar which saw the band praised by the likes of The New York Times, SPIN, and NME as one of the most exciting new UK bands to emerge in 2011.Wolf’s Law was mixed by the legendary Andy Wallace (Jeff Buckley, Sonic Youth, Nirvana). Their headline tour in support of their new album will hit the House of Blues Boston on Friday, April 19.
The album has already had heaps of praise foisted upon it. Rolling Stone hailed the songs as “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge.” NPR noted that “the power and intensity of The Joy Formidable never ceases to amaze.” Alternative Press praised the album, saying “Thanks to such marked songwriting growth, Wolf’s Law cements the Joy Formidable as a ferocious rock act and as a band with plenty to say.” The Guardian hailed the album for its diversity in their 4 star review noting of the song “Silent Treatment” that “…it’s the velvet glove that softens the blows of the iron fists on either side.”
The band recently released the music video for the first US single “This Ladder Is Ours,” which they performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last week. The song was #1 most added at Modern Rock Radio, where it is currently in the top 20, and spent 3 weeks at the #1 spot on the FMQB SubModern charts. In a glowing review for the track, Rolling Stone called the track “a ravenous sonic assault.” Check out the video below.
The Joy Formidable are ready to bring their roaring live shows back to the United States for a number of headlining dates in 2013. The tour begins on March 18 in Santa Ana, CA before hitting up major cities on the east coast. Don’t miss their April 19 show at the House of Blues in Boston!
