The Joy Formidable return with their first release from new album Wolf s Law on October 14th and its one ballsy record with a heady, swirling crescendo backed by a towering guitar riff.

As NME noted prior to their first UK shows of 2012 at packed NME / Radio One Stages at Reading and Leeds Festivals on hearing sneak previews of the new songs, Wolf s Law could well see them become the next big British guitar band. Stream the tune here:

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, 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, for which Cholla is the perfect calling card, 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.

The Joy Formidable will tour the UK throughout the autumn, dates will follow shortly.

Cholla is released on 14th October on limited CD single and digital download.

The album, Wolf s Law follows in January 2013.
