Never miss another 'The Joy Formidable' show
The Joy Formidable + Night Engine
Following their Sell out shows in October and the highly acclaimed support show’s with Muse, The Joy Formidable return for a mammoth UK tour in January. Building on what has been a phenomenal year for the band, 2013 now looks set to be another defining year for The Joy Formidable.
North Wales indie-grunge three-piece, fronted by the enchanting Ritzy Bryan. Abandoning the traditional record industry route, they came to prominence upon releasing 2009 mini album 'A Balloon Called Moaning' as a free download.
Their Breeders and Yeah Yeah Yeahs brand of indie-rock has seen them gain continual support by BBC 6 music and feature on trailers for Channel 4's 'Skins'. Meanwhile 2010's breezy 'Popinjay' single was another impressive slab in their trademark sound of crashing guitars and tight hooks.

Night Engine formed in January 2012. In October 2012 they uploaded a track of theirs called 'I'll Make It Worth Your While' to Soundcloud. In that same month, and with a host of sites linking to the track and running intro pieces on the band, they played their debut London show at the Sebright Arms. It was a total sell out and prompted Louder Than War to note that "Infallibly perfect bands don't come around every day" by way of explanation.
Even the Americans seemed to want to be in at the beginning with MTVHive.com declaring "This band is pretty awesome". A single of the week on The Guardian music podcast and the bold assertion that "this is a swaggering, sexy hit waiting to happen" made sure that, if you missed it, Night Engine were very firmly in the ones to watch category for 2013.
