Violent Femmes We Ca Do Anything

When Violent Femmes released the Happy New Year EP in April, it was the first new release from the band in 15 years. The ball is rolling now, as they'll release new album, We Can Do Anything, on March 4 via PIAS. The band, including original members Gordon Gano and Brian Ritchie, made the record in studios in Brooklyn, Nashville, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and Denver, while on tour with Barenaked Ladies this year. Barenaked Ladies' Kevin Hearn did the cover art and played on the album as well. That's the artwork above and the album's tracklist is below.
