Joy Formidable

The Joy Formidable is the first band signed to Black Bell Records, the label founded by Passion Pit‘s synth player/sampler Ayad Al Adhamy. The band will release their Black Bell debut, an eight-song EP titled A Balloon Called Moaning, on May 4.

The EP was recorded in the band’s home bedroom studio and was entirely self-produced. The Joy Formidable has sold out multiple UK tours throughout the past year and supported several standout bands including Editors and The Temper Trap. After touring the UK with Passion Pit, the band was invited to join them as the opening act to their shows at New York’s Terminal 5. Additionally, the band played two stateside headlining shows at Brooklyn’s Union Hall and New York City’s Pianos, both of which sold out.” -PR

Tickets are on sale NOW for a Monday, May 10th Joy Formidable show at Mercury Lounge in NYC.

The UK band, now on a short tour (all dates below), played Bamboozle on Sunday, a sold out show at Mercury Lounge the night before that, and the Truck America Festival the day before that. Earlier this year, as mentioned above, they visited NYC for some shows including one at Union Hall in Brooklyn with Jaguar Club and Ravens & Chimes. Pictures from that show, with the tour dates, below…
