Welsh alternative rock trio The Joy Formidable have released a brand new single today. Entitled ‘Cut Your Face’, it is the first of three to be issued ahead of a UK tour in September.“‘Cut Your Face’ is a reminder to myself that even in shyness, when that voice is telling you to hide away, that what I really want is deep, authentic connection,” states singer Ritzy Bryan. “The only way to satisfy that longing is to be vulnerable, messy and imperfect…and life is all the more beautiful because of it.”

The band’s ‘Cradle You Again’ tour commences on 20th September and includes several shows that were originally due to take place in the spring. Dates are:

20.09.23  GLASGOW King Tuts
21.09.23  LEEDS Wardrobe
