THE JOY FORMIDABLE veröffentlichten am Freitag nach 3 Jahren, mit "Into The Blue“ ihre brandneue Single auf Hassle Records.

Das passende Musikvideo feierte am Wochenende nun ebenfalls Premiere.

Die britische Alternative-Rock Band um Sängerin/Gitarristin Ritzy Bryan, erzielte in USA/UK bereits diverse Chart-Erfolge, tourte mit Bands wie den Foo Fighters, The Cure, Muse oder Placebo, spielte Headline-Tourneen in Europa und traten in UK u.a. auf der Mainstage der Reading and Leeds Festivals auf.



Die neue eingängige Single "Into The Blue" wurde in Wales komponiert, in ihrer momentanen Wahlheimat Utah fertiggestellt und steht ab sofort zum Einsatz bereit:

"Into The Blue“ - Press-Release

The Joy Formidable are today sharing a brand-new single, “Into The Blue”. It is the band’s first new material since their kaleidoscopic 2018 album AAARTH.

Written in North Wales and later completed at their homes in Utah, “Into The Blue” arrives self-assured and forthright, in a world still trying to regain its footing, stalked by the specters of manipulation, mis-information, and trepidation.

For The Joy Formidable, “Into The Blue” has come to symbolize a period in which anything felt possible. The world stands in a fine balancing act where no bad deed can shock anymore, yet good things can still happen. It is this second side of the coin that brings a resilient, more ethereal quality and magic to "Into The Blue", as the band embraces a growth mindset, leaning into the idea that uncertainty needn’t be something to fear. As lead singer and guitarist Ritzy Bryan sings “You see me for what I am, I don’t have to guess any more”, a great strength is found in turning feelings of being unaccepted and misunderstood into self-love and connection. We find them abandoning the idea of safety and security from the wider world, and instead searching for it within, happy to be surprised by life again.

Bryan comments: “Into The Blue is about surrendering to love and magic. Having the courage to enjoy a new journey and the mystery and excitement of something unexpected. It’s about opening your eyes to beauty and love again. Making it to the other side. Whilst not conceived as a metaphor for the times we all live in now, it certainly turned out that way.”

Band-Bio:
A Welsh alternative-rock trio with a predilection for delivering stadium-sized riffs , the Joy Formidable emerged in 2011 with the fiery Big Roar, which effectively paired '90s alt-rock sonic might with indie pop smarts. Taking a cue from bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, and Arcade Fire, the trio continued to push their already expansive sound further on subsequent offerings like 'Wolf's Law' (2013) and 'AAARTH' (2018), while maintaining the hook-driven indie rock foundation laid down on their chart-topping debut.

After spending several years with the post-punk outfit Sidecar Kisses, vocalist/guitarist Ritzy Bryan and bassist Rhydian Dafydd left the lineup and launched the Joy Formidable, drawing heavily from shoegaze and noisy alt-rock to create their new group's sound. Formed in North Wales in 2007, the band later resettled in London, where original drummer Justin Stahley was replaced by Matt Thomas. The Joy Formidable began building a buzz in 2008, making appearances at several British festivals and earning high marks from publications like The Guardian, which recommended the band's "darkly joyous soft-loud racket." After releasing several singles, the group issued the mini-album 'A Balloon Called Moaning' in early 2009. Tours with the Editors and Passion Pit followed, and The Joy Formidable issued a live album, 'First You Have to Get Mad', before signing with Black Bell Records, an independent label run by Passion Pit member Ayad Al Adhamy. With Black Bell's support, 'A Balloon Called Moaning' was released stateside in 2010. The Joy Formidable toured throughout the year and kicked off 2011 with the international release of The Big Roar, their well-received full-length studio debut.

The band spent the following year writing their second record, while on the road supporting Muse. The resulting 'Wolf's Law', which was recorded in the small town of Casco, Maine, arrived in early 2013 and peaked at the number 51 slot on the Billboard 200 in the U.S., and at number 41 on the U.K. album charts. The following year saw the band issue a series of monthly vinyl-only singles sung in their native Welsh, and in early 2016 they announced via Facebook that they would be releasing their much-anticipated third studio long-player, 'Hitch', later that March. The record was preceded by the single "The Last Thing on My Mind," which was accompanied by a video that included a montage of scantily clad men -- a comment on the over-sexualization of women in the media. The group went on to promote the record with a tour that spanned the U.K. and Europe, as well as playing an opening slot for Foo Fighters across North America. In 2017, The Joy Formidable got to work writing and recording their fourth record. Riffing on the Welsh word for "bear," the album, titled 'AAARTH', arrived in September 2018, a release that was celebrated with tours in support of The Cure and Foo Fighters, alongside a summer of festivals including a coveted main stage slot at Reading and Leeds Festivals.

In 2019 the band took the opportunity to look back at their debut release, 'A Balloon Called Moaning' with a 10th anniversary deluxe edition including a bonus version of the entire record, re-recorded in the Welsh language. This release was accompanied by the first instalment of the band's very own festival, Formidable Fest, set in Cardiff's much-loved Tramshed venue and completely curated and organised by the band, and broadcast live on BBC Radio Wales.

In March 2020 The Joy Formidable are sharing a brand-new single, “Into The Blue”. It is the band’s first new material since their kaleidoscopic 2018 album AAARTH.

Written in North Wales and later completed at their homes in Utah, “Into The Blue” arrives self-assured and forthright, in a world still trying to regain its footing, stalked by the specters of manipulation, mis-information, and trepidation.

Oh!

Gefällt mir sehr gut.
Geht im Sound wieder etwas mehr in die Richtung der ersten beiden Alben.

Hm, weiß nicht so recht.
Der neue Song packt mich jetzt nicht besonders.
Irgendwie schade: Die hatten/haben ein irres Potenzial, wie sie auf den ersten beiden Alben bewiesen haben, aber seitdem ist es leider etwas austauschbar geworden.
