Violent Soho fans rejoice! Today we are absolutely psyched to announce that the band will be playing their first headline show since the release of their massive ARIA #1 fifth studio album ‘Everything Is A-OK’ on Saturday May 1st.
In a little over a month, Violent Soho will take to Brisbane’s iconic Riverstage to play songs from the critically acclaimed, 4 x ARIA nominated album to a live audience for the very first time.
With support from Tired Lion and Seathru, this show will be one for the record books. Riverstage holds a special place in the hearts of both Violent Soho and their fans, with the band playing to a massive sold-out crowd of almost 10,000 animated fans when they headlined at the venue in 2018. Their return to that stage off the back of a year we won’t speak of, is set to be one hell of a party.
Released in 2020, ‘Everything Is A-OK’ marked the band’s second ARIA #1 after their last release ‘WACO’ (which scored 2 x ARIA Awards, the 2017 AIR Award for Best Hard Rock, Metal or Punk album and is certified ARIA Gold) topped the national chart in 2016.
The tremendous win was a testament to both Violent Soho’s undeniable talent and the Australian indie-music community, that the band have been an active part of and helped foster for the past 16 years. Support for the band flooded the nation’s screens, radio airwaves, streaming services, and digital and print media, with ‘Everything Is A-OK’ scoring the Feature Album on triple j and coming in as the #1 New Release on both Spotify and Apple Music.
A revered live act and standing as one of Australia’s biggest bands, Violent Soho are a favourite of music fans everywhere, playing to huge crowds at Falls Festival, Big Day Out, Groovin’ The Moo, Splendour in the Grass and triple j’s ‘One Night Stand’ as well as numerous sold-out headline tours. The band have maintained a breakneck pace on the live front across their career, including stand out performances at Laneway Festival, Party in the Paddock, Mountain Sounds, Splendour in the Grass and their own album tour supported by good friends DZ Deathrays and Dune Rats. This culminated in the biggest shows of the band’s career supported by previous touring mates The Bronx and winning two ARIA Awards (Best Group & Best Rock) as well as performing at the 2016 ARIA Awards ceremony.
Australians are hungry for more live music, and Violent Soho are ready to deliver a year’s worth of Soho energy in one night, at one of Brisbane’s most iconic venues. With a limited capacity due to current restrictions, tickets are expected to move fast. Fans are encouraged to get in quick to avoid missing out!
