The Joy Formidable Sign To Passion Pit’s Record Label
April 6, 2010 by Addict Music
Of bagging the band Ayad says “The Joy Formidable grabbed my attention when I first heard the EP. The loud guitars, epic drums and dense textures with lush pop vocals and melodies just stood out from everything else I was listening to. Since then I’ve been an addict, and so has everyone I have shown this band to.”
The Joy Formidable played their first US shows in January of this year, supporting Passion Pit at New York’s Terminal 5 before their own sold out headlining shows at Brooklyn’s Union Hall and New York’s Pianos.

Wed 5 Montreal The Green Room
Thurs 6 Allston Harpers Ferry
