95BFM, NOISEY & DRUNKEN PIANO PRESENT:
VIOLENT SOHO ANNOUNCE FIRST EVER NZ SHOW
Just announced to play Laneway Festival 2016, Violent Soho are heading to Auckland ahead of the festival for a one off show October 30 at the Kings Arms! Itll be the bands first ever headline show on our fair shores, something thats long overdue.
Adept at turning tales of suburban ennui into raucous rock songs, Violent Soho are the Australian answer to the revered alt-rock Seattle sound that dominated basements, garages and mixtapes in the 90s. The longstanding four-piece have an impressive history: they’ve toured internationally and scored massive support slots for bands like Dinosaur Jr. and Built to Spill; and they sold out every date of their last (extensive) Australian headline tour on the back of their album Hungry Ghost. Hungry Ghost hit the Aussie album charts at #6 with certified Gold sales (35,000+ sales).
They’re currently in the studio working on the much anticipated follow-up to Hungry Ghost, and this week teased fans with the date 8 October 2015; indicating we should expect some more news from Violent Soho soon.
Tickets on sale 9am Wednesday 30th from Under The Radar, Flying Out and Real Groovy.
