American folk punk legends Violent Femmes have announced an Australian tour for next year, and they’re stopping to check us out with a date at Perth Concert Hall on Sunday, March 29.
Gordon Gano and co. are touring in support of their 10th album, Hotel Last Resort, which is said to be some of their finest work to date, mingling front porch folk, post punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant garde minimalism and golden age rock ‘n’ roll into something altogether their own.
Fans can not only look forward to new material from the Femmes, but also plenty of the hits spanning their colossal almost-four decade career and of course their iconic self-titled debut album from 1983 including Kiss Off, Add it Up and Blister in the Sun.
Violent Femmes play Perth Concert Hall on Sunday, March 29. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, October 8 from Ticketmaster.
