femmes

Alt rock veterans Violent Femmes have stayed active on the live circuit pretty much since the '80s, but haven't released new music since their 2008 cover of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" or a new record of original material since 2000's Freak Magnet. That will change on Record Store Day (April 18) when they'll release the Happy New Year EP featuring four new songs, one of which, "Love Love Love Love Love" (penned by Jake Brebes), you can listen to (via Rolling Stone) below.

Violent Femmes will spend most of this summer on tour with Barenaked Ladies on their "Last Summer on Earth 2015" tour, including a stop in NYC at JBL Live at Pier 97 on July 1. Men At Work's Colin Hay plays that show as well and tickets are on sale.

All tour dates are listed, along with the new song stream, below...
