Yippeee!!! Heading to Corona Capital next month & we're smack bang between @tttopsss & @kimbramusic. Kimbra's latest video involves a UFO crashing into a model village. Amazingly she survives the crash by wearing a fish bowl on her head. Praise be! 🙏 - #kimbra #tops #fishbowl #sandwich #thejoyformidable #coronacapitalgdl #mexico #corona #alternative #rock #music #guitars

Fun fact about The Better Me: Instead of paying for a bubble machine we setup downwind from a car wash & let the beautiful suds do their magic. By the end of the video we had witnessed at least 36 cars get washed & do you know, not one of them got the full wax. What a travesty. - See us on tour in May: 1st - Nashville -> 3rd - Atlanta -> 4th - Asheville -> 6th - Raleigh -> 8th - Orlando -> 11th - Mexico City -> - #bubbles #downwind #carwash #betterme #joyformidable #music #alternative #rock #guitar #ontour #tour

Finally got a minute to work on the canvas that you all wonderfully started on the AAARTH tour. We’ll be auctioning this for Youth Cancer Trust so keep your eyes peeled. What would you like to see?

On the 3rd of May we will play Shaky Knees Festival AAAND Vinyl later on in the evening. TWO KILLER SHOWS in ONE DAY!!! Here's a pic from last time we played. I like to think this was taken just after we told Ritzy we had three tickets to the petting zoo & she get's to take home a free goat, but feel free to make up & post your own stories below. Tee Hee! Get tickets for both shows and more here:" Photos by Rebekah Goode-Peoples

Looking forward to the first date of our next tour in Nashville! We have support from the excellent @creaturecomfortt & Matt has rehearsed some beguiling Tim McGraw covers, just in case he turns up. It's not likely, but he likes to be prepared. You know how it is. One minute you're on stage & the next minute Tim McGraw busts in. Haha! Anyway... We have these photos from last time we were in town rehearsing & playing the live show. In real life we utilize an entirely different palette to greyscale, so come see us at a gig & enjoy us in full technicolor. If you're not in Nashville, then take a look at our schedule & view us in a full spectrum of color elsewhere!

The ffilm ‘Anorac’ by @huwstephensdj and Gruffydd Davies is on S4C at 9.30pm tonight. It’s a wonderful celebration of Welsh music and it was a privilege to be part of it. TUNE IN!

TJF SPECIAL GIVEAWAY TIME! If you’d like to own some proper boss TJF memorabilia here is your chance! We are giving away our 6ft lighthouse (pictured here on our Wolf’s Law tour) to one of you lucky Formidables. (Who doesn’t want a great lighthouse in the garden??!!). This is a first come first serve situation so please contact us on [email protected] ASAP and we’ll take it from there. The only stipulation is that you’ll have to pick it up from LA. Rhydian’s wallet doesn’t quite stretch to fedexing lighthouses this month! He spent all his cash on fishermen’s friends. Get involved and good luck sailors! XXX (save us some rum) OO AAArth

Celebrating kind, strong, charismatic women around the globe today on #internationalwomensday . Here’s two that we found in the van ❤️. Kelly who looks after our stage & backline. Very few women in this part of the industry & she has some stories to tell. She’s brilliant & an inspiration to more young women wanting to go out on the road. Ritzy, along with being our resident badass is also Tour Managing this year and doing a fantastic job. You can be who you want to be and do what you want to do. #nofixedroles #thankyou #tenacious #proud

We’re sorry to announce that Ritzy lost her battle with her voice after last night’s gig and that we have to cancel tonight’s show at Kings in Raleigh. We hope you understand. The body has spoken and we can’t risk further damage. The show will be rescheduled for May 6th and all tickets will be honoured. We’ll see you soon Raleigh and apologies again for any inconvenience. Much love. TJF xxx
