The March Violets have been at the forefront of the UK's post-punk movement for over 30 years. During this time they have recorded sessions with John Peel, produced some of the scenes' most well known tracks and critically acclaimed songs which blend together atmospheric and driving melodies with poetical and sometimes abstract lyrics. Since their reunion they have used crowd funding to independently produce their first complete album Made Glorious with all new material (there have been numerous LPs and EPs collected together but not many bands have taken 30

years to make their debut album).

At the same time as the band emerging to new successes, 2013 has also been an exciting time for the bands members, with Rosie's debut published novel The Palace of Curiosities receiving glowing reviews from the national press and entering the Waterstones Top Sellers section, whilst Tom has been working on soundtracks for a number of independent US films and both Si and Jo have been producing new material through their side projects.

Don't miss this rare opportunity.
