The Joy Formidable have announced that their highly anticipated album Hitch, will be available on Friday, March 25th. Their own record label, C’Mon Lets Drift, in partnership with Caroline (US), Orchard/Membran (Europe) and MapleMusic (Canada), will be producing the record.
For their third album, the Welsh trio wanted to capture their energy when performing live and record it onto the tracks. The album was mixed by well-known musician Alan Moulder of The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, and The Smashing Pumpkins.
The band’s previous albums include The Big Roar (2011) and Wolf’s Law (2013). Along with the release date of Hitch, The Joy Formidable has also come out with the music video for single, “The Last Thing on My Mind.” The song and video evoke the feeling of sexual liberation, making the masterpiece NSFW.
Hitch can currently be pre-ordered ahead of it’s March release date. It features artwork by Ralph Steadman. A full listing of Hitch’s track list, as well as upcoming live shows for The Joy Formidable can be found below.
