The Joy Formidable
What do Dave Grohl, Garbage’s Shirley Manson, and Steve Nieve have in common? They’ve all raved about The Joy Formidable. Formed in 2007 in their native North Wales, the band has released only one EP and one studio album, but they’ve been met with a tremendous amount of success. You’ve probably already heard and loved singles like “Austere” and “Cradle,” and you probably want to hear more. Don’t worry; a new album is slated to be released in January of next year! The Joy Formidable has earned a reputation for incredible live performances (they’ve played with bands like Temper Trap and Deck the Hall Ball artists Passion Pit), which we think means they’re a band not to miss at this year’s show!
