"Friday night saw the return of the Violent Femmes to Australia. And what a triumphant return it was. The absolute capacity crowd in front of Stage 2 were in constant motion – ranging from flat out head banging to substance fuelled ethereal swaying as the ‘Femmes powered through all their hits, including “Gone Daddy Gone”, “American Music”, “Kiss Off” and to close the show, “Add It Up”. - The Music: Womadelaide review

Violent Femmes return to Australia in March 2017 for their most extensive tour since 2005. The autumn tour follows a sold-out national tour in March 2016 that included headline spots at Womadelaide, Golden Plains, Twilight @ Taraonga and A Day On The Green, this time however, the Femmes will traverse the road less travelled appearing in regional & suburban centres, major cities and an encore performance of their A Day On The Green headline shows with Hoodoo Gurus.

"We would like to continue our decades-long love affair with Australia by bringing the rock to the regions. We will be playing old favourites and new with our usual shambolic splendour.” - Brian Ritchie

Expect to hear cuts old and new including tracks from 2016’s comeback release We Can Do Anything. A triumphant return after a 16 years absence.

"It’s classic Femmes" - The Guardian
"Everything feels remarkably fresh and unforced." **** UNCUT
"They still sound as brilliantly odd as their seminal self-titled debut." - Blurt

Video: Love, Love, Love

Continuing the localised theme, Violent Femmes have also invited Rayella * (an indigenous father-daughter duo from Marlinja in the Northern Territory) along for shows in NSW, N.T and Queensland. Violet Femmes bassplayer Brian Ritchie first encountered Rayella at the Bush Band Bash in Alice Springs in 2014 and both parties hooked up for an informal jam after the Violent Femmes 2016 performance in Perth.

“Eleanor and Raymond’s father/daughter vocal frontline lend authenticity to their stories of life, aspirations and place… Their music is a deep blend of modern life and ancient energy” - Brian Ritchie
