Joy Formidable Support Foo Fighters on Tour

The Joy Formidable scored a very high honor when Foo Fighters’ front man Dave Grohl asked them to tour along side the heavy rock giants for a slew of East Coast tours.

The two bands will provide quite the contrast to audiences when they take the stage. While the Foo Fighters are touring behind their newest full-length, Joy Formidable is focusing more on the work of others with their new EP Roarities which features covers from The Naked and Famous and Innerparty as well as a couple live tracks.

The band also released their newest video, for the song “A Heavy Abacus” which you can see right here.
