Violent Femmes, A Day on the Green – 12th March 2016
A new EP ‘Happy New Year’ announced a return to recording for Violent Femmes in April, their first new music in 15 years. Since reuniting in 2013 Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie and drummer Brian Viglione have embarked on wide-ranging tours and buoyed by the love from fans old and new, are currently recording a new album. The trio have released eight studio albums and more than a dozen singles, among them the classics as ‘Blister In The Sun’, ‘Gone Daddy Gone’, ‘Nightmares’, and ‘American Music’.
Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes): “We here at Violent Femmes Touring Inc. are overjoyed to be bringing the music to our stalwart Aussie fans. To stand on the side of stage and witness the indomitable spirit and sound of the Sunnyboys is a longtime ambition of ours. As for the Hoodoo Gurus, we go back a ways with them. It’s 32 years when Violent Femmes played at the Hoodoos debut album release party. They are still rocking beyond imagination. We think the bill is complementary and elegant and are proud to be part of it.”
