The Joy Formidable are set to play a three date 'guerrilla' tour this spring.

The Welsh rockers will play free shows in conjunction with Clarks Originals in Manchester on February 29, Bristol on March 1 and London on March 2. Tickets for the shows can be applied for via an online ballot, which closes on February 3. To apply for tickets, visit ClarksOriginals.com.

The venues for the shows are being kept a secret, but it is promised that the gigs will take place in 'completely unique locations'. The venues will be revealed to ticket holders 48 hours before the shows on Twitter and via email.

The band's frontwoman, Ritzy Bryan, spoke to Rolling Stone last year about the current process of writing the band’s second album. "We’ve written a lot. There are a lot of songs, a lot of threads of songs and we’re just enjoying the process of writing at the moment without trying to make too much sense of it," she said of the follow-up to 'The Big Roar', which is set for release this year.

"We're very excited next year to have another album out," said Bryan. "We've had a lot of different releases and they’ve come out at different times in different countries... so creatively, we're looking forward to coming out with everything together. Kind of a clean slate, if you like."
