Violent Femmes announce co-headlining tour with Echo & The Bunnymen

VIOLENT FEMMES ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN CO-HEADLINING TOUR
WITH ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN
NEW ALBUM SLATED FOR LATER IN THE YEAR

 
"The Wisconsin punk-folk trio's first album in 18 years occasionally summons
the warped whimsy of their classic self-titled 1983 debut - only updated
for ruined teens hitting their fifties."
-Rolling Stone

(New York, NY) - Today, Violent Femmes announce their North American co-headlining tour with Echo & The Bunnymen. The tour begins July 11 in Philadelphia, PA, and ends August 3 in Vancouver, BC. The full itinerary is below.

The band is still touring in support of their critically acclaimed album WE CAN DO ANYTHING, which was their first album in 15 years. Violent Femmes reunited at Coachella in 2013 and then in 2016 made their first network TV live appearance in 16 years, performing "Memory" on CBS' Late Show with Stephen Colbert as well as their legendary song, "Blister in the Sun" with Colbert on vocals. The video was seen everywhere and even became the #1 trending topic on Facebook the day it was released.The Violent Femmes continue to appeal to new generations of fans, and recently found a new fan in author JK Rowling who humorously rated the band 8.5 out 10 on the eclectic Ruth and Martin's Album Club blog. Violent Femmes are currently recording their new album, which will be released later in the year.
