Violent Femmes share “Memory” from first LP in 15 years
Violent Femmes, who turn 35 this year, have just shared the first single from the band's new album We Can Do Anything, the band's first in 15 years. "Memory" is a song of love, loss and aging and is instantly recognizable as a Femmes' song, from the acoustic guitar and bass, to the brushed drums and Gordon Gano's plaintive wail. Stream it via NPR below.
We Can Do Anything is out March 4 via PIAS. The band have no North American tour dates announced at the moment but they will be in New Zealand and Australia in March. Those dates are listed below.
