Once upon a time in Leeds 1981,The March Violets strum their first riff and scrawl their first set list. Their impressive post-punk legacy stretches from 1980s John Peel session, Indie chart successes Radiant Boys EP, Grooving In Green, Snake Dance, Walk Into The Sun and Turn To The Sky (used in John Hughes film Some Kind Of Wonderful) all the way to their 21st Century Reunion headlining festivals across Europe and USA and storming Record Store Day in 2021 with their sell-out double LP 'Big Soul Kiss'
And now, for the first time, The March Violets are releasing their full back catalogue via Jungle Records. Founder members Rosie Garland and Tom Ashton are joined by William Faith (Faith &The Muse, Conflict).
They are excited to be back in the studio recording a brand new studio album for 2023 and touring to support their back catalogue releases.
They will be joined by two artists/bands from U.S.A in the form of Vision Video and Kristeen Young.
