“Violent Femmes Fans! We are all dressed up and nowhere to go. Half the band are in USA and the other half are in Australia. We can’t get together with Covid restrictions in both places. So we’re postponing our long-awaited Australia / NZ tour to February 2022. We hope the obstacles will be removed by then. Thanks for your patience and be assured we want to see all of you and play for you when the coast is clear. In the meantime stay safe!” – Brian Ritchie / Violent Femmes

Rumour has it that upon enrolment into Australian university students receive a copy of the Violent Femmes eponymous debut. Ten tracks and 36 minutes long, the album features the universal themes of alienation, isolation, sexual frustration and angst – perfect early adult fodder – via songs such as Gone Daddy Gone, Kiss Off, Add it Up, Please Do Not Go and of course, Blister in the Sun. We don’t know if that rumour is true, of course, but it would go some way in explaining “The Femmes” enduring popularity in our parts.
And so we welcome Violent Femmes to Australian shores in February 2022 for their first national tour since 2017. This time they come with a brand new album – their 10th – ‘Hotel Last Resort’ that resides among the among the band’s finest work.
