Happy bank holiday folks! Hope you’re all having a good one (well, those in the UK anyway). So we are super proud to announce that we have yet another hot single coming out of Oh! Inverted World towers today. The track is TV by Northern rockers The Violet May and is available from all good digital stores (itunes, amazon, HMV, 7digital, etc) from today and precedes the forthcoming 5-track EP out next month (see the links on the right of this blog).
You can also grab yourself an exclusive listen of the new single here;
A dark and melancholic slow-burner, “TV” is focused on the world of TV celebrities and people’s obsession with fame. It’s our third release for TVM, and it just keeps getting better from these guys. Despite only having been around since the end of 2009, TVM have already been tipped for big things in broadsheet The Guardian, appeared in the BBC 6Music studio as Steve Lamaq’s new favourite band, headlined London’s KOKO for Club NME, played the likes of Secret Garden Party, Leeds Festival, a sold out Italian tour, a German tour with The Chapman Family, shot their debut video with Douglas Hart (of Jesus & Mary Chain), opened for Band Of Skulls and Boxer Rebellion, as well as winning big support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, XFM, The Guardian, Clash, Artrocker amongst others.
The Violet May finished up in the studio in early February, recording their debut EP with Alan Smyth (Arctic Monkeys, Long Blondes, Pulp) at 2Fly Studios in Sheffield. “TV” is the first single from the EP, following 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 full 5-track EP is out on June 27th, you can pre-order it now and get the new single for FREE though. Just give the cover shot below a click.
The band are back at London’s KOKO for a headline set in late-July, as well as shows throughout the country and sets at Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik and this year’s Boardmasters Festival. Check out full dates and details here; www.facebook.com/thevioletmay
