The Joy Formidable’s new album AAARTH has keenly shone the spotlight back onto the Welsh alt-rock trio. An album packed with inventive and emotive rallying cries, born from a place of renewed vision, AAARTH has become their most experimental work to date, and among their most heralded.
As their live outings in support of the new album got underway in the summer – with main stage appearances at Reading & Leeds Festival, a sold-out show at The Lexington, followed by extensive touring in support of Foo Fighters through the US and Canada – their latest material has been connecting with fans old and new, and is turning into a defining record in the band’s already storied career. Three huge singles – Dance of The Lotus, The Wrong Side, and The Better Me – have picked up airplay across BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music too.
