The Joy Formidable at Venue, Vancouver.

The Rhiannon “Ritzy” Bryan-fronted Welsh trio is currently on tour in support of its second full-length album, Wolf’s Law. They released their debut full-length, The Big Roar, in 2011.

The new record has been receiving heaps of praise. Rolling Stone said the new songs are “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge.” Magnet wrote that “[Wolf’s Law] is a sonic step forward, with more emphasis on orchestration… and dynamics.”  In a four-star review, The Guardian hailed the album for its diversity and noted that the song “Silent Treatment” is “the velvet glove that softens the blows of the iron fists on either side.”

Opening the show was Guards, the new band from former Willowz lead singer Richie Follin. The band also features keyboardist Kaylie Church and Loren Humphrey. The group has one EP and recently released full-length, In Guards We Trust.
