The Joy Formidable Announce Limited Edition Record Store Day Release

The Joy Formidable will release two new songs as part of this year’s Record Store Day. A 12” featuring a brand new, previously unheard track, ‘A Minute’s Silence’ will be backed by the band’s cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Badlands’.

Image‘A Minute’s Silence’ is inspired by Jonathan Franzen’s ‘The Corrections’ and has led to Ritzy Bryan and the author exchanging views following Ritzy’s declaration of love for the book. ‘Badlands’ is a live recording taken from a band session for Sirius XM.

Lead singer Ritzy Bryan is happy to be part of the day, saying: "We love buying music and we've always valued the atmosphere and experience of browsing a really great record shop. For that reason, it's a pleasure to be part of the celebration that is Record Store Day, and we're very excited to share our vinyl release of this brand new track, A Minute's Silence."

The 12” will be limited to 500 copies in the UK and available from all participating Record Store Day outlets on Saturday April 20th.

The Joy Formidable are currently on tour in the USA having recently returned to the UK for a string of dates ending in their biggest ever headline London show at the Roundhouse. The band will return to the UK for festival shows in the summer including already announced sets at Truck, Standon Calling and Boardmasters. Head over to www.thejoyformidable.com for more details.

Morrissey - Low In High School (Album Review)
Fri 17 Nov 2017
In a music world too often occupied by blank, mundane personalities, Morrissey remains a torch bearer for political itchiness and introverted bombast. That said, 'Low in High School', his 11th solo album, is laced with borderline bigotry and libidinous ennui. This cantankerous bastard is clearly not dealing with ageing well.
