Violent Femmes eponymous debut from 1983 was the soundtrack for so many of our teen years. It was, and still remains, a firm favourite and a very influential record—with its rugged pop sensibility and themes of alienation, isolation, sexual frustration and angst. After successfully breaking the folk-punk scene, the group have released chart-topping hits like 'Blister In The Sun', 'Gone Daddy Gone', 'Kiss Off', 'Add it Up', 'American Music', 'Please Do Not Go' and so many more!

During their spanning career, Violent Femmes have continued to release genre-defining albums. With their upcoming NZ comeback, they will be celebrating their 10th studio album 'Hotel Last Resort'—which resides among the band’s finest work, simultaneously refining and redefining their one-of-a-kind take on American music. The record merges front porch folk, post punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant garde minimalism and golden age rock 'n' roll into something still altogether their own.

Don't miss your chance to catch Violent Femmes' finger-snapping live performances this November!
