The Joy Formidable are excited to share their new music video for “Little Blimp” today. The video was shot over the last few weeks using a Go Pro camera attached to the headstock of lead-singer Ritzy Bryan’s guitar during performances in London, Brighton, and at Stubb’s during SXSW. Stereogum already raved about the video, saying “…this turns out to be a pretty visceral way to make a live video.

Following their acclaimed shows at SXSW last week, the band are hitting the road in the US starting today, with a show tonight at The Conservatory in Santa Ana, CA. The band will be playing in Los Angeles at the Henry Fonda this week on Mar 21, followed by a show at San Francisco’s Fillmore the following night. They will be heading up the West Coast and then crossing the US throughout April, making their way to the East Coast for a number of dates including April 18 at Webster Hall in New York. For a full list of tour dates, please see below.

The Joy Formidable 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).
