Introducing... The Violet May

The Violet May released their début five track EP this June. The first glimpse of the EP was a free download of the track "What You Say" which has already been picked up for NME's "10 Best Mp3's This Week" and Q Magazine's "New To Q" playlist. The band have also confirmed a string of dates including London's KOKO this July as well as festival dates at Iceland Airwaves and Boardmasters Festival. In the words of The Guardian, "their time is now..."

With loud and lunatic tunes, leaving many a venue battered and bruised across the UK, audiences seemed hooked on the energy produced by a band in its raw stages. Singer Chris McClure’s aggressive charm is backed by the rough-edged guitar work of John Kubicki & Jono How, while the rhythm section of Dan Booth (Bass) & Alan Whitaker (Drums) have forged their own powerful live reputation.
