Hire Violent Femmes:
Violent Femmes are an American folk punk band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The band consists of founding members Gordon Gano (guitar, lead vocals) and Brian Ritchie (bass, backing vocals), joined by multi-instrumentalist Blaise Garza (joined 2004), and drummer John Sparrow (joined 2005).

In early 1983, the band found critical acclaim with the release of their self-titled debut album in. Featuring many of their best-known songs, including “Blister in the Sun”, “Kiss Off”, “Add It Up” and “Gone Daddy Gone”, Violent Femmes became the band’s biggest-selling album and was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA.

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.

The Violent Femmes are featured on the song “Gotta Get to Peekskill” by Dropkick Murphys that appears on the band’s 2023 album, Okemah Rising.

Their discography includes 10 studio albums, 19 singles, five live albums and four compilation albums, in addition to a number of miscellaneous appearances on soundtracks and compilations featuring various artists.
