For twelve months, The Joy Formidable have been holed up in the studio recording their third full-length album. Last Thursday they brought new and old tunes back to Los Angeles’ Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever. From the very first note the band felt as if they had never taken a break. Leader Ritzy Bryan summed up new song “Passerby” as capturing the entire feel of the new album, yet that it will not appear on release. The new song dominated the venue, with a huge booming intro that continued throughout the entire song.
Beloved locals The Moth & The Flame kicked off their tour with The Joy Formidable amongst friends. With the release of their latest EP, it’s not hard to see these boys going far.
