Violent Femmes head back to Australia in March 2020 for a national tour

Folk punk band Violent Femmes are heading back to Aussie shores next year March for a seven-date national tour. They will kick off the tour at Hobart's Odeon Theatre before hopping into Melbourne's The Forum. They will also be performing at Brisbane's Sandstone Point Hotel, the Gold Coast's Miami Marketta, Sydney's Enmore Theatre and Adelaide's Thebarton Theatre before culminating at Perth Concert Hall. The group will also be playing two shows in New Zealand, performing at Wellington's Opera House and Auckland's Logan Campbell Centre.

The Femmes return armed with their latest, 10th studio album 'Hotel Last Resort'. Released last July, the album resides among the band's finest work, simultaneously refining and redefining their one-of-a-kind take on American music, mingling front porch folk, post punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant garde minimalism and golden age rock 'n' roll into something still altogether their own.

"The Violent Femmes are practically in a genre of their own. Their songs have traveled with us through breakups and good times alike. The Femmes engagement with the audience is remarkable. The crowd goes wild for each and every of the many hits in the bands repertoire, singing along at the top of their collective lungs." - Torched Magazine, May 2019

The Femme's support acts span the sublime to the ridiculous and include South Sudanese performer Gordon Koang (with full band), all female Cretan traditionalists Bandidas, indigenous singer-songwriter Chris Tamwoy and Femmes' bass player Brian Ritchie's own side act, The Toilet Brushes.
