The Joy Formidable Hitch on 2LP

Welsh trio The Joy Formidable return with their highly anticipated new album Hitch. Once described by Rolling Stone as "wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge," the fantastic live band went to work on their third studio album with one mission: to make sure their unique live performance and energy was captured on record. "We realized we needed to build a space and do it ourselves, go back to being three people in a room again" said Ritzy Bryan regarding the band's decision to self-produce Hitch.

Following suit with their decision to take the reigns on the record, The Joy Formidable chose to "work with people who feel as strong as we do about the music, who listen to albums, love the art and let that take control." One such early supporter was the legendary Alan Moulder (The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins) who mixed the album. The band states "on this album, we've been lucky enough to feel that same enthusiasm from everyone involved."

Recording in their studio The Red Brick in the Welsh hills where they grew up boded well for the band, and Hitch is a huge leap forward from its predecessors The Big Roar (2011) and Wolf's Law (2013).  More minimal in style, with earthy tones of the blues and folk, it swaggers and haunts in equal measure. "It's one of the most driving records we've made but it's also the saddest," adds Ritzy. "This album takes you to places that we might not have taken you before."
