The Joy Formidable Add Tour Dates In Support Of Hitch, Out Now



Welsh trio The Joy Formidable are touring in support of their recently released album Hitch, out via their own record label C’Mon Lets Drift in partnership with Caroline (US), Orchard/ Membran (Europe) and MapleMusic (Canada.)  The fantastic live band went to work on their third studio album with one mission: to make sure their unique live performance and energy was captured on record.  “We realized we needed to build a space and do it ourselves, go back to being three people in a room again” said Ritzy Bryan regarding the band’s decision to self-produce the new album.

Following suit with their decision to take the reigns on this album, The Joy Formidable chose to “work with people who feel as strong as we do about the music, who listen to albums, love the art and let that take control.”  One such early supporter was the legendary Alan Moulder (The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, etc;) who mixed the album. The band states “on this album, we’ve been lucky enough to feel that same enthusiasm from everyone involved.”

The band are excited to share that they’ve added several North American summer dates, with full dates listed below.  Regarding a recent performance: “…witnessing the return of the North Wales trio was as close to rock ‘n’ roll nirvana as you are likely to get.” In addition to their powerful live show, the band will be offering fans a chance to attend a meet and greet and intimate, acoustic performance before doors.
