The pride of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Violent Femmes are putting out their first new album in 16 years.
The classic alternative band formed in 1981 and is famous for many quality songs like “Blister in the Sun,” “American Music,” and “Kiss Off.” The bands 9th album is called We Can Do Anything and comes out on March 4th. Our first single is called “Memory” which makes a lot of sense…as it sounds like vintage Violent Femmes and has the band reflecting. Lead singer Gordon Gano told NPR in the US tjhat song is an older demo they brought back, “We even recorded it as a demo many years ago and then it was forgotten about until digging into [our] archives, which led us to record it anew and release it.”
