Hell Fuck YEAH! Violent Soho Announce WACO Tour Dates
Hear that? A collective “hell fuck YEAH” just rang out across the country because homegrown heroes Violent Soho have announced a national tour.
After teasing the news on their socials yesterday, Mansfield’s finest have confirmed they will be passing through Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Sydney this May with DZ Deathrays and reigning bong lords Dune Rats along for the undoubtedly messy ride.
The news comes mere weeks out from the release of Violent Soho’s fourth album, WACO, which follows the band’s undeniable 2013 breakout LP Hungry Ghost. Here at BLUNT HQ we’ve had a cheeky listen to Soho’s newie, and can wholeheartedly confirm that it’s a certified corker.
The band recently revealed their one-shot clip for “Viceroy”, the latest WACO single to hit our earholes, featuring drummer Michael Richards smashing his kit with wooden spoons and shredder James Tidswell sucking down on his Volcano vape bag. In other words, it’s peak Soho.
After this year’s Laneway Festival we’d been hoping to see the band announce a more extensive tour, and it looks as though our weed-fuelled prayers have been answered. WACO pre-order bundles are live over at 24Hundred and include CDs, vinyl, posters, shirts and skateboards.
There’s also an exclusive pre-sale happening for those on the Violent Soho mailing list, which runs from Wednesday March 2nd @ 9am til 11.59pm local time. Hit up violentsoho.com to sign up and gain yourself sweet, sweet access.
General tickets are on sale Friday March 4th @ 9am.
