Big Roars

BBC Introducing favourites The Joy Formidable roared out of North Wales in 2007 with an arsenal of top class tunes rarely seen in a fledging band. Early collection A Balloon Called Moaning was released as a free digital download shortly after as Ritzy, Rhydian and Matt set out on an intensive touring schedule. Debut album proper, The Big Roar followed this year, cementing the trio's place as a must have on the main stages of the festival circuit.
