The Joy Formidable Share Album via Pandora; Gear Up For US Tour‏

Welsh trio The Joy Formidable have announced that they’ll be sharing their highly anticipated forthcoming album  Hitch on Friday, March 18th exclusively via Pandora. The album will be made available everywhere the following Friday, March 25th via their own record label C’Mon Lets Drift in partnership with Caroline (US), Orchard/ Membran (Europe) and MapleMusic (Canada.) Recently described by Rolling Stone as “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge,” the fantastic live band went to work on their third studio album with one mission: to make sure their unique live performance and energy was captured on record.  “We realized we needed to build a space and do it ourselves, go back to being three people in a room again” said Ritzy Bryan regarding the band’s decision to self-produce and engineer the new album.

No stranger to boundary pushing topics, The Joy Formidable also recently premiered their entirely NSFW music video for their first single ‘The Last Thing On My Mind.’  Ritzy explains “It’s a song about freedom, about feeling alive & a part of that is about sexual liberation too, which is why we wanted to make a music video from the perspective of a heterosexual female gaze. It shows men in many forms, being free, being sexy, being watched, it’s beautiful and provocative and is some small attempt to re address the existing imbalance of perspective and nudity in music videos”

Hitch features exclusive artwork by Ralph Steadman and anyone who orders the album from the band’s web store will receive bonus track “Passerby” (not available on the album.)
