The March Violets 2022 The March Violets 2022

Play Loud, Play Purple

Once Upon A Leeds, 1981. The March Violets strum their first riff and scrawl their first set list. Their impressive post-punk legacy stretches from 1980s BBC John Peel sessions, indie chart successes Radiant Boys EP, Grooving in Green, Snake Dance and Turn to the Sky (featured in the John Hughes movie, Some Kind of Wonderful), all the way to the 21st century reunion, headlining festivals across Europe & the USA and storming Record Store Day 2021 with sell-out double album Big Soul Kiss.

And now, for the first time The March Violets are releasing their full back catalogue, with worldwide distrubution via Jungle Records.
Founder-members Rosie Garland (performer, poet and author) and Tom Ashton (guitarist, producer and studio owner) are joined by William Faith (musician and vocalist with Faith & the Muse, Conflict and The Bellwether Syndicate).
They are excited to be back in the studio, creating brand new material & planning live dates in 2023- 2024.

There are many surprises to come. Jungle Records are releasing our full back catalogue & we’re planning live dates for 2023-2024.

“The slinky, savage yet warmly delicate March Violets, whose thirst for mystery, magic and brutal darkness has set them apart.”
Winston Smith, Sounds – June 18th 1983

“Fantastic, post-punk shrapnel guitar from founder member Tom Ashton… the strikingly, scary, esoteric beauty of Rosie Garland - whose operatic tones contrast perfectly with Denbigh’s gutters growl. The songs clatter and grind around the drum machine and their powerful fug fills the room.”
John Robb, Louder Than War
