VIOLENT FEMMES ANNOUNCE NEW TOUR DATES

VIOLENT FEMMES Tour DatesViolent Femmes announce new tour dates. Following a sold-out Australian tour and many sold out U.S. dates in May, Violent Femmes are extending their U.S. tour to include Asbury Park’s Stony Pony Summerstage series on June and key East Coast dates. The tour is in support of their latest album WE CAN DO ANYTHING, released March 4 ([PIAS]). The band is also excited to announce the release of their limited edition Record Store Day 7″. The Double-A sided 7″ includes “Memory” from their latest album and a previously unreleased track “You Move Me.” The 7″ will be available on April 16.

The band’s upcoming world tour gets underway on April 30 at Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN and then travels throughout the West Coast, Midwest, and East Coast through May and June. As if that weren’t enough, Violent Femmes has also been announced among the star-studded line-up for Radio 104.5’s 9th Birthday Show at Camden, NJ’s BB&T Pavilion, slated for June 17. Additional US dates and festival dates will be announced soon and a complete list of tour dates is below.

Earlier this month, Violent Femmes premiered the video for the first single, “Memory,” from their new album via Record Store Day. The clip was created and animated by Harley Hefford, an Australian video director and fan of Violent Femmes who created last year’s “Good For/At Nothing” music video for the band off their Record Store Day EP.  Hefford used a collage-style animation to create a fictional narrative where a giraffe (inspired by the album’s artwork) reminisces with founding band members Gordon Gano and Brian Ritchie who share made-up memories from their past.

WE CAN DO ANYTHING is available now at all leading online music retailers. In addition, a number of special bundles are on sale at the official Violent Femmes store, with extras including an exclusive screen print poster, limited edition gold vinyl, t-shirts, and much more.
