Violent Femmes have announced the next North American leg of their hugely popular 2016 world tour. The new dates get underway September 24 at Franklin, TN’s Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and then travel through late October (itinerary attached). Special guests will be announced soon.
Violent Femmes have spent much of the year on their epic world tour, including headline treks across Australia and New Zealand and festival dates around the world. The trek celebrates Violent Femmes’ acclaimed new album, WE CAN DO ANYTHING, released earlier this year via [PIAS] and available now on CD, VINYL, and DIGITAL DOWNLOAD. Violent Femmes’ ninth studio album and first full-length collection in more than 15 years, WE CAN DO ANYTHING includes the rollicking single, “Memory,” hailed by NPR Music upon its exclusive premiere for possessing “the playful quirkiness, infectious beats and jittery observations of the band’s earliest work.” The song has an animated companion video – directed by Australian filmmaker (and lifelong Violent Femmes fan) Harley Hefford – streaming now at the band’s official YouTube channel.
