Combining the dream tones of the 80s with the sound of rock music
VIOLENCE release debut album in March
VIOLENCE combines the dreamy tones of the ’80s and the sound of modern rock music in its biggest format.
Violence’s sonic terrain is forged of melancholic- and transcending tones. The weightless universe draws multiple parallels to The Cure’s “Disintegration”-era and Slowdive, understood and conveyed into a newly interpreted and up-to-date context. The major-scale tones and airtight production (Chris Kreutzfeldt ― Møl/Cabal/Siamese), will besides that create associations to pompous stadium rock bands like The 1975 and Bring Me The Horizon. As yet another spice in the musical cocktail, Violence will add a dash of wildness and carelessness often found in the punk genre. Punk has had enormous importance for the band ― that with more than one hundred European concerts, (including sold-out danish concerts; VEGA, Pumpehuset etc.) ― would categorize themselves as experienced in the underground music environment without blinking. The members were known as the hardcore punk band Woes back then ― a band that has since been shelved in search of a sound that resonates more with the visions of the members.
