VIOLET BONES are a four piece rock ‘n’ roll band from Cambridge. Rik (Guitar), Oz (Drums), Stu (Bass) and Si (Vocals) pack an incredible amount of passion, energy, animation and spirit into their sing-along garage-pop anthems.
Their fierce DIY ethic and constant touring across the UK has earned them support slots with punk heroes New York Dolls and Ash. On home turf their following is loyal and raucous.
Violet Bones spent 2010 self-releasing singles and touring hard including a well received show at In The City 2010. The songs and the shows scored well with the media and audiences alike.
With strong support from BBC Cambridgeshire and a host of fanzines and local radio stations, previous single I Feel The Need was at No. 1 on the Pre-Order Chart at Play.com for weeks.
BBC Introducing asked the band to do a BBC Masterclass, and put them forward to play Glastonbury 2011. Violet Bones will also be appearing at The Great Escape Festival in May.
Produced by The Animal Farm, Violet Bones’ new single Villains is out on May 16th 2011, available in physical and digital formats in all good stores. Oh, and the back of the band’s van.
