THE JOY FORMIDABLE - neuer Song, neues Video & Tourdaten

As The Joy Formidable prepare for their sold-out show at Meltdown Festival next month, the Welsh trio are ready to share a brand new track from their forthcoming album, and announce a UK headline date at The Lexington, London.

"Dance of the Lotus" and its accompanying video will give fans their first glimpse of new material from The Joy Formidable and will provide a special preview of a record rumoured to be their most vibrant and experimental yet. Heavily inspired by the artwork of bassist Rhydian Dafydd, the animation for the video was done by the award-winning Boston production team Trllm.

"We wanted to share this album track with the people who have supported us to give them a glimpse of what we've been working on, and this track is right at the heart of our new record," says lead vocalist Ritzy Bryan. "It's magical and lonely, like a night-time walk in the desert when you're trying to escape from yourself and the chaos you've created."

Although the album came into being as the band travelled the globe and recorded in their mobile recording studio, the music intertwines the whispering hills of Wales with the otherworldly rainbow canyons of the Utah / Arizona border.

"We've definitely made a colourful, mystical collage with this record, partly because of our surroundings," says Bryan. "Those multi-coloured sunsets & the primeval elements of nature in the Southwest - it's emboldened our imaginations in the songwriting & the production."

The Joy Formidable wrap up shows in the US and Europe, before arriving in the UK for their headline show at The Lexington, London - and are excited to have support from the talented Bryde - ahead of appearances at Reading & Leeds Festivals. Prior to this, on June 22nd, the band will perform at London's Southbank Centre for Robert Smith's Meltdown, the UK's longest-running artist-curated music festival.
