VIOLENT SOHO is an Australian punk-grunge band hailing from Brisbane’s suburb of Mansfield, who has a unique sound with raging riffs, battering-ram guitars, vocals obscured by haze and distortion, and a rhythm section so powerful it threatens to flatten buildings.
Luke Boerdam (Vocals, Guitar), James Tidswell (Guitar), Luke Henery (Bass), and Michael Richards (Drums) came together half a decade ago to make music that would embrace an 80’s and 90’s punk-grunge sound. Since the release of their first full length, We Don’t Belong Here, VIOLENT SOHO has done extensive touring in the UK and US playing with bands such as The Grates, The Black Keys, The Bronx, and many more. They have also been featured in major music festivals around Australia including Homebake, Meredith, Falls Festival, and Laneway Festival.
