MASSIVE NATIONAL TOUR WITH THE BRONX (USA), LUCA BRASI & TIRED LION
The year 2016 has proven to be a massive year for four mates from Mansfield. Following the release of Violent Soho’s #1 debuting album WACO and a completely sold out tour to follow (which included a whopping two Enmore Theatres, three Tivolis and three Forum Theatres), Violent Soho are showing no signs of slowing down! Today, we are beyond excited to announce that the band are heading out on their biggest tour to date, with another line up for the ages! Joining them will be special guests The Bronx (USA), Luca Brasi and Tired Lion.
Having formed over 11 years ago, it’s fair to say that Violent Soho have slogged their way past every inch to get where they are today. A history that includes being signed to Thurston Moore’s (of Sonic Youth) label, moving to the US for two years and touring with their heroes such as Alice in Chains, Dinosaur Jr and Built To Spill and eventually moving back to Australia because things hadn’t really panned out. Then in 2013 Violent Soho, seemingly out of nowhere, propelled themselves into the hearts and stereos of many around the world with wildly well-received LP; ARIA Gold accredited Hungry Ghost.
In November 2015, “Soho” smashed back on to our airwaves with Like Soda (#15 in triple j Hottest 100) the first single from their fourth full length ARIA #1 album WACO, which they recorded at The Shed Recording Studios in Brisbane with producer and friend Bryce Moorhead, and released in March 2016 via I Oh You. Since then, fans have been lapping up the record, collectively losing their minds over subsequent singles Viceroy, So Sentimental and current head banger Blanket.
This national tour will see Violent Soho jump onto some very prestigious stages – in their biggest rooms to date – and will bring with them one of the most frenzied line ups of the year!
