Welsh trio The Joy Formidable are pleased to announce the release of their Silent Treatment EP on all digital outlets tomorrow. The Silent Treatment EP includes 4 tracks, including a new mix of the title track done by William Orbit (Blur, Madonna, Pink), a live version of “Tendons” recorded at London’s Roundhouse, and previously unreleased song “All This Promise” from the sessions that produced the band’s most recent album, Wolf’s Law. For full track listing, please see below.

The band have also released a music video for the EP’s title track, directed by the duo ArchEnemies. The video for “Silent Treatment,” shot in black and white, features a confident yet vulnerable performance by lead-singer Ritzy Bryan. Watch the video at now:

Many critics noted that “Silent Treatment,” a centerpiece on the band’s acclaimed sophomore album Wolf’s Law, was a different direction for the band. Pitchfork noted, “Most Joy Formidable songs start at heart-pumping and turn up the volume from there, but on the delicate “Silent Treatment”, Bryan is able to convey that same intensity backed only with an acoustic guitar.”

The band will be hitting the road for tour dates with Passion Pit, beginning on September 29 in Charlottesville, VA. The tour will span from coast to coast throughout the entirety of October and the first part of November, including dates in Los Angeles at The Greek Theater on October 25.
