The Joy Formidable thrash around in a river in video for new song “Sevier” (watch)

The Joy Formidable's new album Into The Blue arrives this Friday (8/20) via Enci Records in North America, Full Time Hobby in Europe and Soundly Distro in the rest of the world (pre-order), and ahead of its release, we're premiering one last single and its video, "Sevier." It's a big, loud, sludgy rock song that will take you right back to the grunge era, and the video — which features Ritzy Bryan thrashing around with her guitar in the Sevier river — looks very '90s too. If you miss that era, this scratches the itch.

"The river Sevier runs 385 miles through Utah – close to where I live. It’s a metaphor for love & it’s journey," Ritzy says. "Are you staying in it, following it through all the seasons, cutting through mountains and canyons through all the hardships, or cutting (severing) loose? We loved the idea of water being a main element in the performance video; the churn of the waves against the calm of still water." Watch below.

The Joy Formidable will also be touring with Cuffed Up, including a NYC show on December 14 at Bowery Ballroom (tickets). All dates are listed below.
