Violent Femmes announce their glorious return to Australia

Violent Femmes

And they’re bringing a new album to boot.

For the first time since 2017, US punk legends Violent Femmes are returning to Aussie shores in March for a massive seven-stop tour.

The four-piece dropped their tenth studio album, Hotel Last Resort, just months ago. Clocking in at just 36 minutes over ten tracks, the new LP still manages to pack a punch, covering themes of alienation, isolation, sexual frustration and angst.

On their Aussie circuit, the crew will be bringing their unique blend of folk, post-punk, jazz and blues to Hobart, Melbourne, the Gold Coast, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

Check out the dates for Violent Femmes’ national tour below:

Thursday March 19 — Odeon Theatre, Hobart TAS

Friday March 20 — Forum Theatre, Melbourne VIC

Saturday March 21 — Sandstone Rocks, Sandstone Point QLD

Sunday March 22 — Miami Marketta, Gold Coast QLD

Friday March 27 — Enmore Theatre, Sydney NSW

Saturday March 28 — Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide SA

Sunday March 29 — Perth Concert Hall, Perth WA
