With a new four-song EP, Silent Treatment, out tomorrow, the Joy Formidable return with a new black-and-white video for "Silent Treatment." Directed by duo ArchEnemies, the video features an emotional performance by lead singer Ritzy Bryan, who called the song "a very personal and emotive moment." She continued, "It's a track about coming to terms with a relationship that's totally broken down; the hurt, the regret but also the unburdening that comes with accepting a loss."
The EP also features a William Orbit mix of "Silent Treatment," along with a live version of "Tendons" recorded in London, and the previously unreleased track "All This Promise," from the sessions that yielded the band's most recent album, Wolf's Law.
Up next for the Welsh trio is a tour with Passion Pit that travels from coast to coast.
