The Joy Formidable Premiere New Song ‘Dance of the Lotus’, Announce Tour Dates

The Joy Formidable will be back later this year with a new album, it was revealed by the Welsh three-piece this week. The band, whose most recent album was 2016’s Hitch, dropped the news along with a new song, “Dance of the Lotus.”

The catch? The song is (for now) only available to fans on their mailing list who download using a link provided at their website. Here’s the song’s music video:

“We wanted to share this album track with the people who have supported us to give them a glimpse of what weve been working on, and this track is right at the heart of our new record,” says lead vocalist Ritzy Bryan. “Its magical and lonely, like a nighttime walk in the desert when you’re trying to escape from yourself and the chaos youve created.”
