A Welsh rock trio with a predilection for delivering stadium-sized riffs with shoegazey vistas and dreamy post-punk riffage, The Joy Formidable return with their new album ‘Into The Blue’.

Taking a cue from bands like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, My Bloody Valentine, and Arcade Fire, the trio have continued to push their expansive sound on previous studio albums, from the breakthrough debut ‘The Big Roar’ (2011), through to the last studio album ‘AAARTH’ (2018), whilst always maintaining the hook-driven indie rock foundation laid down on their debut EP ‘A Balloon Called Moaning’ (2009).

Currently the band split their time between their native Wales and the closest thing they could find in the U.S, “In the middle of nowhere” Utah, where they recorded the record.

“Into the Blue is about opening your eyes to beauty & 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” – Ritzy, Rhydian & Matt – The Joy Formidable


Into the blue
Bring it to the front
Back to nothing
Only once
Left too soon
Gotta feed my dog
Somewhere new
