Take a load off with a The Joy Formidable’s most recent single called “A Heavy Abacus” which will be included as part of their forthcoming EP to entitled Roarities.   The way cool live version featured above was recorded at live at the legendar KOKO in Camden, London.

Guess what…still love this band.  Why?  Becasue they rock and because they have a method to their alt-rock madness…record, tour, repeat.  Their day is coming…it’s just a matter of time.

The Joy Formidable's Spring Tour

Given the bevy of US tour dates this Spring, if you miss seeing The Joy Formidable live it’s because you didn’t really want to see them in the first place. Their coast to coast tour kicks off at The Earl in Hotlanta just (2) days after the official start of Spring on March 22nd. From there they hit the rest of the east coast before making their way across the Heartland of America, across to the left coast and then back again to finish up in NYC. This tour also includes stops at SXSW and Coachella.
You can check out the complete tour listing, purchase tickets and pre-order a digital copy of their debut album The Big Roar (scheduled to drop on March 14th) all from their website. Can’t wait to see their show at the Black Cat in DC!
