Following a two year run of shows that saw The Joy Formidable play across the globe from Japan through the US to Europe, continually building as they went peaking in a month long tour with Foo Fighters and a run of high profile festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds alongside a headline slot at New York’s prestigious Terminal 5 that had The New York Times cheering on ‘an artful dissonance of style, …a gleeful riot’. On the ‘home’ side of the pond, a sold out London Forum was treated to the band’s biggest UK headline show to date which left many agreeing with an earlier NME review which noted that ‘The Joy Formidable have always sounded so much bigger than the stages they inhabit’.
The band retreated to the wilds of Maine at the close of 2011 to record the tracks that would become ‘Wolf’s Law’. Snowed in for periods in the intense winter climate, the trio broke out to add orchestral touches in London and then to mixing in New York with the legendary Andy Wallace.
The finished album takes the band’s already acknowledged mastery of melody and dynamic to another level, achieving the band’s aim at its inception ‘to keep the sense that everything is possible.
