The Joy Formidable have announced a Dublin date on their upcoming tour at Whelan's on Sunday 16th October. Having sold out multiple UK tours throughout 2009 and taken to the road in this country in support of the likes of Editors, this self contained band, recording studio, label and design company in one has also made their mark across the globe, touring Europe with The Temper Trap and visiting the US with Passion Pit, where support dates were supplemented by their first two headline US shows, both sold out and the subject of high praise amongst the cognoscenti of New York City and the US music scene. The Joy Formidable released their debut album The Big Roar in January. Tickets for their Whelan’s headliner on October 16th are on sale this Friday at 9am.
