The Joy Formidable follow a summer of worldwide festival performances with a UK tour and a new release this month. ‘The Big More’ is a digital accompaniment to the band’s debut album and features exclusive new tracks and a remix alongside lead track ‘Cradle’. The EP contains a Fang Island remix of ‘Cradle’, a live version of ‘Whirring’ from the band’s sold out Koko show, new track ‘Anemone’ and a cover of the Roy Orbison classic ‘It’s Over’, chosen by fans via a poll on the band’s website.

The Joy Formidable have just finished a tour in the USA, before returning to the UK for a full tour this month. During their time Stateside, the band performed on the Letterman show on Thursday 6th October. They follow this final trip around the UK in 2011 with a further visit to North America to support Foo Fighters throughout November.
