Already announced for Splendour In The Grass 2013, the band will now be gigging on their own through out Melbourne and Sydney, giving Australian fans the perfect opportunity to see what all the fuss is about.
Breathing new life into the garage rock movement, Palma Violets’ hard work has not gone unnoticed. Since releasing their debut in 2012 the band has already been praised tastemaker juggernauts BBC and NME.
A serious percentage of the quick success would have to be attributed to the bands thorough online presence. Pumping the web with tracks and footage from live performances, music lovers and potential fans need only click once or twice to discover a plethora of Palma Violets tuneage.
When it came time to release 2012’s 180, there was already a worthy legion of followers behind the band. The buzz was so chronic that BBC included them in the Sound of 2013 awards, scored them a place in NME’s 50 Best Tracks Of 2012 with their single Best Of Friends and toured alongside the likes of Django Django for the NME Awards Tour 2013.
Tickets for Palma Violets’ sideshows go on sale next Monday, 13th May via Secret Sounds.
UPDATE: Organisers have announced the support acts for all shows. The crowds on both nights will be warmed by Bleeding Knees Club and Teenage Mothers.
