Re-visit Reading and Leeds

This three piece band from North Wales played the BBC Introducing stage at Reading and Leeds in 2008. Since then they've gone on to have their music featured on a trailer for Channel 4's teen drama, Skins and earn notable support slots alongside Editors, Passion Pit and even Sir Paul McCartney.

Following on from sets at Radio 1's Big Weekend and Glastonbury this year, The Joy Formidable return to Reading and Leeds to make waves on the NME/Radio 1 stage playing tracks from their as yet untitled debut album.
