After the release of their third album, The Blind Leading the Naked (1986), the band’s future was uncertain and they split up in 1987 when Gano and Ritchie went solo. However, they regrouped a year later, releasing their fourth album, 3 (1989). The follow-up album, Why Do Birds Sing? (1991), contains the fan favorite and concert staple “American Music”.
The Violent Femmes played three shows in Australia as part of the 2013/2014 Falls Festival, performing at Marion Bay on December 30, Lorne on December 31, and Byron Bay on January 2. On May 11, 2014, they performed at the Shaky Knees music festival in Atlanta, Georgia.
Around the start of 2015, the band played several shows in Australia, including the Woodford Folk Festival, the Sydney Opera House, and MONA FOMA festival. In the midst of these performances, they recorded their first new material in 15 years on New Year’s Eve 2014 in Hobart, Tasmania.
These four songs were released on an exclusive four-song EP on clear 180-gram vinyl on April 18, 2015, for Record Store Day. The band then joined Barenaked Ladies and Colin Hay on a two-month tour in the summer of 2015.

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire VIOLENT FEMMES for an event?)
(i.e., what is VIOLENT FEMMES booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for VIOLENT FEMMES, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
