Date & Time

The Origins of Violent Femmes

Violent Femmes formed back in the early 80’s by percussionist Victor DeLorenzo, bassist Brian Ritchie, and guitarist and vocalist Gordon Gano. This was at the time when the initial wave of punk rock in America had died down. In their initial days as a band, they frequently performed in small coffee shops and on street corners. They kept at it until they were finally discovered by James Honeyman-Scott of the band the Pretenders in 1981 when they were playing on one such street corner. The Pretenders were going to be playing a show later on that night and they invited Violent Femmes to play a short acoustic set right after the opening act of the evening. And just like that, Violent Femmes made their debut onto the music scene.

Rising Stars

After that fateful night, the band released their debut self-titled album followed by the album Hallowed Ground. The band changed their sound from punk rock to more of country and spiritual at this time. Their third album, The Blind Leading the Naked, saw the band move into more of a mainstream pop direction.

In the mid 1980’s the band parted ways for a while and each of the members focused on their own projects. However, the split didn’t last too long and they were all back together by 1988. They released their next album, 3, which saw a return to the bands earlier, original style and sound. In 1991, the band released Why Do Birds Sing? which featured the hit song and concert staple ‘American Music’.

In 1993, percussionist DeLorenzo left the band to focus on his solo work. He was replaced by Guy Hoffman. The band then went on tour to support one of their biggest selling records, Add It Up (1981-1993) collection.

Hoffman stayed with the band for nine years and together, Violent Femmes released five full length studio albums. The band also recorded one-off material for soundtracks during this time, including music for South Park and the movie, The Crow.

DeLorenzo eventually came back and continued to play with Violent Femmes.

The Disbanding of Violent Femmes

Things weren’t always very rosy for the band. In 2007, Gordan Gano, who had always been credited for writing all the lyrics for the band, sold advertising rights to the band’s hit song ‘Blister In The Sun’ to the fast food chain, Wendy’s.

This angered Ritchie who even filled a lawsuit against Gano seeking half the ownership for Violent Femmes music. This led to the band disbanding in 2009.

Reunion & Return of Violent Femmes

In 2013 Violent Femmes announced that they were getting back together and would be performing at the Coachella Music Festival. The band continued to play a number of high profile music festivals between 2013 and 2015, which was a delight to both old and new fans alike.

In 2016, the band released their first album in sixteen years, We Can Do Anything. Understandably, die-hard fans of the band were very excited. This also marked the opportunity for the band to gain a whole lot of new fans.

To support this album, the band announced that they would be heading out on tour across North America beginning in the spring and going through the summer. Make sure you don’t miss Violent Femmes when they come to play in your city. Grab your Violent Femmes tickets today!
