THE MARCH VIOLETS HEADLINE CONVERGENCE XX
Bottom Lounge
1375 W. Lake Street,
Chicago IL 60607,
United States

Welcome to Convergence Twenty Chicago! We are extremely honored, dark denizens of the Internet, that our city has again been chosen to continue the fine once-a-decade tradition of being your hosts for a weekend you'll never forget! Sincere thanks to all who voted for Convergence Twenty Chicago.

The March Violets are one of those bands.

Formed in Leeds in the post punk era at the very start of the 80s, they were one of the 4 dark Northern Bands that are often blamed for starting the Gothic scene, The Danse Society, The Sisters of Mercy, The March Violets, and The Southern Death Cult. The Violets released a series of singles that still fill the darker dance floors around the world, the most played being "Snakedance" and "Walk into the Sun."

Three original members reformed in 2008 for a reunion, and since then the Violets have done a few rare concerts, headlined some festivals, and finally managed to write and record their first proper album.

They will be playing some old classics and some new ones from the Made Glorious album. Strangely enough, people who have seen The March Violets in this century say they sound exactly the same as they did back in the early 80's, the Violets agree.

The March Violets' appearance at C20 (their first C*) will mark their first time in the U.S. since 1987, and the first time ever with all three original members -- promising a rare performance from a legendary band that has actually managed to evolve, yet retain their original dark brilliance.

"Play Loud, Play Purple."

De legendarische band The March Violets komt op 10 april voor een exclusief Nederlands optreden naar Poppodium Nieuwe NOR in Heerlen. De band, die met labelmaatjes The Sisters of Mercy destijds aan de wieg stond van het gothic (rock)-genre, maakte in 1981 haar debuut in Leeds. Ultra-donkere nummers als ''Snake Dance' en 'Walk Into The Sun' zijn nog altijd krakers op de dansvloer.

The March Violets is een niet-alledaagse, unieke groep die eigenlijk zo onwaarschijnlijk is dat ze eigenlijk niet zou moeten bestaan. Als een van de eerste bands maakten ze, met labelmaatjes van Sisters of Mercy, gebruik van een drumcomputer op het podium. Toch is hun sound nog donkerder dan die van The Sisters, hun teksten verwarrender en hun humor zo bizar dat ze hun nummer beschrijven als 'simplistische pop anthems voor een blanke generatie'.

In 1981 maakte The March Violets haar debuut in Leeds, de stad waarvan wordt gezegd dat deze aan de basis staat van de gothic rock, met acts als The Danse Society, The Sisters of Mercy, Southern Death Cult en Red Lorry Yellow Lorry. Twee albums brachten ze uit op het Merciful Release-label vol met post-punk energie, woeste poëzie en songs als 'Snake Dance' en 'Walk Into The Sun', nog altijd krakers op de dansvloer. 'The Violets' waren niet alleen Gothic Doom Rock, ze hadden Soul en een donkere grillige energie die dreigde zichzelf te verscheuren. En wat onvermijdelijk was gebeurde; in 1987 hield de band ermee op.

In 2007 en 2010 kwam de band voor exclusieve reünie-shows in Engeland weer bij elkaar en in 2012 maakte men voor het eerst de overstap naar het Europese vasteland om op grote festivals als Wave Gothik Treffen en Shadowplay (Waregem) te spelen. En nu, met drie van de vier originele bandleden, komen ze op 10 april 2014, voor het eerst naar een club in Europa, in de stad waar wave, ebm en gothic rock nog steeds op veel bijval kunnen rekenen, Heerlen. Let op: op 10 mei staat ook clan of xymox (waarmee huidig March Violets' gitarist Tom Ashton ook nog deel uitmaakte) in poppodium NIEUWE NOR tijdens de tweede editie van het 'Repost' festival!

De kaartverkoop start op zaterdag 18 januari om 10:00 uur.
