News: The March Violets – 2023 Tour Dates & Album Announcement

THE MARCH VIOLETS announce a tour and album!

The March Violets release their album Made Glorious on CD, streaming and double-LP, to coincide with a series of dates across five countries so far announced.

The March Violets ‘difficult’ debut album Made Glorious, originally self-released to subscribers in 2013 is now on vinyl for the first time for Record Store Day as a purple 2LP.  On May 26, the eve of their UK and Europe tour (dates below), it’ll also be on CD and digital.

Coming to prominence in the 1980’s, the band’s six indie singles made a big impact on the indie chart, a prelude to the major-label deal they signed.  The singles were compiled for successful LPs in the UK and USA – but they split before making the album they promised.

Twenty-five years later, original band-members reconvened for tours of the UK and USA.  A single and video of Dandelion King was issued in 2011 and finally the album Made Glorious was given a release in 2013.  However, DIY economics and events intervened to restrict it to subscribers, much to the disappointment of many. Tracks:  1. Made Glorious, 2. Billion3, 3. A Room with No View, 4. Of Roses, 5. Tokyo Flow, 6. Ramming Speed, 7. Little Punk Thing, 8. Dandelion King, 9. 2024, 10. London’s Burning, 11. We Are All Gods III, 12. Road of Bones, 13. Discoboy Must Die; 14. Dress 4 U; 15. Bottle of Poison, 16. My Demons.  Line-up:Rosie Garland, Si Denbigh, Joanna Moy and Tom Ashton

Additionally, the current line-up of Rosie Garland, Tom Ashton and William Faith recorded a new album earlier this year.  Possibly the band will preview teasers around the tour dates.
