on January 25, 2011, 10:31am

Led by dynamic frontwoman Ritzy Bryan, Welsh rockers The Joy Formidable are gearing up to take on the world behind their debut full length, The Big Roar. Released yesterday in the U.K. and available March 1st in the states, the outfit will support the 12-track effort by embarking on three-month world tour starting next month.

Beginning February 1st in Bournemouth, England, the tour continues through France, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Brussels before finally arriving in North America on March 22nd. After launching in Atlanta, The Joy Formidable will travel up the coast, where The Lonely Trees will hop on as tour opener for the remaining North American dates.

After playing the lone Canada stop in Toronto April 2nd, the tour continues through the Midwest, and makes its way to Portland and San Francisco, which happens to be the locales where The Lonely Forest recorded their new LP Arrows. From Northern California, the groups head back east with performances in Phoenix, St. Louis, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and New York. Need some clarification, check the entire list of dates below.
