Barely over a year after playing their first ever American shows, Welsh rock trio The Joy Formidable release their debut album, THE BIG ROAR. After self-releasing their eight-track a BALLOON CALLED MOANING EP at home last February, The Joy Formidable spent 2009 touring the U.K., Europe and Australia. Along the way, they earned critical raves from NME, the Guardian, the London Times, Spin and Pitchfork, and praise from Garbage's Shirley Manson and Courtney Love, among others. The band produced THE BIG ROAR themselves, with help from engineer Neak Menter.
