VIOLENT SOHO ANNOUNCE TINDERBOX/NEIGHBOUR NEIGHBOUR 7″ TOUR with special guests

| 13 September 2012 | Reply

+ BIGSOUND WEDNESDAY SHOW @ 10.30pm

It’s been a while between drinks for Brisbane’s (and in particular
Mansfield, 4122) Violent Soho.

The band first shot into the music world’s eye when they signed to
Thurston Moore’s (of Sonic Youth fame) record label Ecstatic Peace! in
2009 and released their sophomore self-titled LP. A move that saw the
four friends relocate to the US for the next 18 months of their young
lives.

This move proved to be a fruitful one for Violent Soho who went on to
make a considerable dent in the US Billboard Charts when their single
‘Jesus Stole My Girlfriend’ peaked at #21 on the Billboard Alt charts
and subsequently saw them touring North America with bands such as
Dinosaur Jr, Alice in Chains, Built To Spill and The Bronx…while also
making the trip to the UK to play the coveted ATP after being specially
requested by Les Savy Fav. In late 2010 and after all of this, Violent
Soho decided it was time to head back to their hometown of Mansfield and
begin working on album #3.

Since returning to Australia the band has been hard at work writing and
stockpiling material for their upcoming album due out next year. The
first taste of which is their new single ”Tinderbox’, a blistering
track that was released through I OH YOU last month to rave reviews:

“‘Tinderbox’, a song as incendiary and flammable as the title suggests
“- triple j’s ‘Home and Hosed

“The band’s sound is grittier this time ’round, trading in
loud-soft-loud dynamics and frontman Luke Boerdam’s impassioned yell” –
Fasterlouder

“A blistering little slice of grunge-pop” – Polaroids Of Androids

Violent Soho are now gearing up for their first Australian headline show
in over two years in support of the Tinderbox single, this will see them
playing intimate venues in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and their
hometown of Brisbane throughout November.

Tinderbox is taken from the upcoming Double A-Side 7″ ‘Tinderbox /
Neighbour Neighbour’ due out on the 2nd of November through I OH YOU.

Note: This Wednesday Violent Soho will also be playing a one-off show at
Bigsound in Brisbane, get in the pit! 10:30pm – Q Music Stage.
