Violens prep new record for UK release; announce tour

by Tom Walters, 27 June 2012

Brooklyn's Violens will be returning to the UK for three dates this August, and you get to decide where they'll be playing via the social tour-backing website Detourjam.

Fans of the band will be able to 'pledge' to the band playing in their city by purchasing their ticket in advance, and they'll only be charged if their city's pledge is successful.

The tour comes just in time for the band to see in the UK release of their latest record True, which hits shelves on 10th September via Slumberland Records.

To get the ball rolling, a three-track sampler has been posted online, which includes the ethereal and Wild Nothing-esque first single, 'Totally True'.

Take a listen to the sampler below, and don't forget that you can also pledge for your city - which includes London, Brighton, Glasgow and Manchester - right here.
