Violens at Music Hall of Williamsburg, Bklyn

New York four piece Violens, who we found to be quite smashing and a bit sinister at CMJ 2008, (especially with singer Jorge Elbrecht’s Morrissey-esque vocals) is set again to take CMJ by storm next week with three high-profile appearances at top showcase events. In early November, Elbrecht and crew will then fly off to Europe for a month-long tour that will find them sharing bills with Bat For Lashes and the Bernard Sumner-lead Bad Lieutenant in Paris, and support gigs for Little Boots and Black Lips as part of Les Inrocks in France, and finally a swath of dates with buzzy act White Lies in the UK until December 5th.

Details below on how and where you can catch Violens at CMJ and around Europe next month.
