Fresh off the back of releasing their lauded debut EP “TV” in the summer and headline shows at London's Koko, Music Week's Breakout night, a German tour with The Chapman Family, and support to The Duke Spirit; Sheffield rockers The Violet May will be taking to the road for a national headline tour this October. The band play across the UK from October 1st with support from Aussie act All Mankind.

The Violet May have been creating havoc on the live scene since forming in 2009, and are seen by many as the remedy to the mass of twee indie acts currently on the scene. A debut video shot by Douglas Hart of Jesus & Mary Chain and support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, XFM, Clash, Guardian and Artrocker have been backed by performances at the likes of Leeds Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boardmasters Festival, and opening last year's Energy Sessions Festival for Band Of Skulls and The Boxer Rebellion.

Frontman of the band, Chris McClure, said of the tour: “We are like animals locked in a cage at the moment, we are on a mission to show people that guitar music still has a heartbeat, they don't need to settle for The Vaccines or Viva La Brother. Leave your pretences at home and come check us out.”

Following the tour, The Violet May are headed back into the studio to lay down the next set of tracks for their debut album. The band will also release the track “This Could Be Bad” in November as part of the legendary Club 60's new singles club. And we can't wait to get our ears around it!
