The Joy Formidable are extending their recently announced headline tour to include additional stops along the east coast and southern US.. The band have also confirmed performances at a number of festivals, including the Norman Music Festival in Norman, OK; the Beale Street Festival in Memphis, TN; and the Shaky Knees Fest in Atlanta, GA. The tour begins on March 18 in Santa Ana, CA before hitting up major cities on the west coast, including a March 21 show at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. The band are also playing shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, Canada, and others before shows on April 17 at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and April 18 at New York City’s Webster Hall. For a full itinerary, please see below.

The Joy Formidable’s are touring in support of their latest album,Wolf’s Law, which was released in January 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).

The album has already had heaps of praise foisted upon it. Rolling Stone hailed the songs as “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge.” Magnet proclaimed that “[Wolf's Law] is a sonic step forward, with more emphasis on orchestration (both Bryan and Dafydd have classical backgrounds) and dynamics.” 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.”
