Track Of The Day (2) – The Joy Formidable – This Ladder Is Ours


I wasn’t planning to post two ‘Tracks of the Day today, after all a boy’s gotta eat!  However when this arrived in my mail box, I had no choice,  The Joy Formidable roar back in fine style with a song of exquisite brutal beauty.  After allowing fans to download the amazing forthcoming album title track ‘Wolf’s Law’ for free and then whetting the appetite further with the fabulous ‘ Cholla’  they now unleash a new video.

This Ladder Is Ours’ is revealed to  coincide with tickets going on sale for their 2013 UK tour, supporting the release of their long awaited second album Wolf’s Law.  If you haven’t caught them live you really are missing out as, hand on heart, they are one of the best live bands you’re likely to see in this world or the next!
