Once again it looks like the West Coast of the United States is THE place to be for phenomenal shows not to be missed.
After a successful jaunt in April where they headlined Chicago‘s 20th Convergence Festival, the UK‘s The March Violets have arrived for their “Into The Sun Tour, A Purple Tinted Wander Down The West Coast“. Earlier today they were in studio revving themselves up for tonight’s show at El Corazon in Seattle, Washington.

And in other March Violets news:
For those of us who are unable to make it to the western part of these United States (and for those who can but just can’t get enough), it was recently announced that the first proper March Violets studio album is now available to the general public as a download.
As most of you are aware, there was a time when you could sign up via Pledge Music to sponsor the making of “Made Glorious“. In addition to the collector’s signed limited-edition of the double CD release with an extra CD of unreleased tracks and remixes, there were offers being made for exclusive and extremely limited merchandise… t-shirts, badges, artwork, posters…
Although all of this is non-attainable now, you can still get in on the music, which is part of what makes The March Violets oh-so-very-purple. Visit them at their official Bandcamp page where you can easily and securely place an order for the digital version of “Made Glorious”. A truly remarkable album and well worth the three-year effort. A notation should also be made here that this is THE album that ran away with the first place award for Terra Relicta’s 2013 Dark Album of the Year.
It should also be noted that the excess funds raised during their Pledge Music “Made Glorious” run was distributed among three charities. How could you not love them… 🙂
- Think Local … Cloth Cat Music Charity
- Think Global … Friends of The Earth
- Think Ahead … Macmillan Cancer Support
We have more MV news coming up, but we’ll focus on one side of the globe at a time. Keep your eyes here for lots of goodies to tantalize your taste buds!
