The Joy Fomidable #16 - This Ladder is Ours

It's fair to say that since The Joy Formidable returned to the UK at the end of August to play the Reading and Leeds festivals and a small Lexington show that they've been spoiling us. After treating us to the incredible slow-burn piano led "Wolf's Law" my favourite rock trio followed with "Cholla", an altogether meatier beast with punishing beats and distorted guitars, it exemplified the stratospheric arena-filling noise that has defined the bands rise, and now for the third time in a month they return with a new track, "This Ladder is Ours". Similarly rip-roaring it combines Ritzy's identifiable vocals with skyscraping guitars and frenetic drums, The Joy Formidable are soon to be as massive as the sound they produce, just as the recently announced tour dates supporting Muse on a handful of UK dates at the end of October suggests.

You're a better person that I if you can work out any of the forthcoming releasing riddle though, I've read both news of a Cholla EP (originally thought to be released October 14th) and a Wolf's Law album (which I've seen slated for January 22nd in the US), perhaps "This Ladder Is Ours" serves nothing more than to leave you wanting more and that, it certainly does.
