Palma Violets return

This is one of my anticipated albums of the spring. I was impressed by their performance at Coachella... 

Palma Violets are back with their eagerly awaited sophomore album Danger In The Club, which will be released on May 5 via Rough Trade. PRESS HERE to stream the new track “English Tongue.”

The rambunctious British four-some not only impressed droves of music fans recently at SXSW in Austin, they even found themselves physically carried off the stage by security at The Parish for playing past curfew. Palma Violets are returning to the US in May and June. All dates below.

PRESS HERE to watch the official video for “Danger in the Club.”

Two years after acclaimed debut 180, the new music was produced by John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall).

Speaking about the new album, bassist/singer Chilli Jesson explains:

“We wanted to make a young-sounding record. We listened to a lot of pre-punk while we were making the album. We like its rawness and simplicity. A lot of bands want to over-complicate their second album, we know that we didn’t.”

Their “Danger in the Club” video was shot in one continuous take in the Lambeth group’s local pub The Pineapple and directed by legendary British photographer Roger Sargent.
