’80s-era goths The March Violets released a new album, currently on US tour (dates, streams)

by Bill Pearis

The March Violets

No ’80s goth mix is complete with The March Violets‘ driving 1984 single “Snake Dance,” a classic of the era that still sounds pretty good today. The band, originally close comrades with Sisters of Mercy, broke up in 1987 but frontman Tom Ashton reformed the group in 2010 and they’ve been going ever since. Having only released a handful of singles in their original six-year run, The March Violets recorded their first proper studio album, Made Glorious, last year which pretty much picks up where they left off. (Not bad.) You can stream the whole thing, and check out some ’80s cuts, below.

The March Violets are currently on tour in North America and will be in NYC on Friday (10/9) at Mercury Lounge. It’s a late show (doors 10:30 PM) with a preceding DJ set from Patrick & Sean. Tickets are on sale now. All tour dates are listed below.
