WATCH: The Joy Formidable Seek Shelter in Video For “This Ladder Is Ours”; Announce New Album

The Joy Formidable--the wildly popular Welsh alternative-rock trio--is back with a new music video, a new tour and (most importantly) the announcement of a new album. The group consisting of Ritzy Bryan, Rhydian Dafydd and Matt Thomas have just announced the release date and track listing of their upcoming sophomore album Wolf's Law. The followup album to The Big Roar will be released via Canvasback/Atlantic on January 22 and features the already-chart-topping single "This Ladder Is Ours".

In the semi-performance-based video for "This Ladder Is Ours," the threesome try to hide out inside a secluded cabin during a massive dust storm, but it proves unsuccessful as the powerful gusts rip the shelter to shreds. You can watch the entire video below as well as check out the released album artwork for Wolf's Law and The Joy Formidable's upcoming US tour dates including tonight's stop in New York!
