Brit rockers Palma Violets have announced they’ll be hitting the road post Splendour to support The Vaccines on their Melbourne/Sydney sideshows. If that’s not enough, the boys have treated us to a second taste of their sophomore album Danger In The Club with a brand new music video shot in West London.
The song, appropriately titled English Tongue, was the last tune the boys wrote for the album, and is what front man Sam Fryer describes “an American folk song with English lyrics and emotion”. The quirky vid sees the boys rocking out in St John’s Church and features Game of Thrones star Paul Kaye playing a not-so-orthodox preacher.
After a US tour that included the band being carried off stage at SXSW for breaking curfew, the South Londoners have returned to their motherland to play a string of shows leading up to the May 1st release of Danger In The Club on Rough Trade Records/Remote Control Records.
SIDESHOWS (supporting The Vaccines)
Monday 27th July – The Corner Hotel, Melbourne
Tuesday 28th July – The Metro Theatre, Sydney
Tickets for both dates go on sale on Wednesday 29th April at 10am AEST via Secret Sounds.
