Violens Summer Tour Dates

New York experimental indie outfit Violens will open for the likes of Grizzly Bear and MGMT on select dates this summer. MGMT asked Violens to join them on the road following Violens front man Jorge Elbrecht’s remix of the MGMT single “Time To Pretend.” On June 5th, they’ll headline a Mercury Lounge show with friends Chairlift and Project Jenny, Project Jan for Mixel Pixel‘s CD release show.

Violens recently released their critically acclaimed new single “Trance-Like Turn” on The Green Owl Records Comp: A Benefit for the Energy Action Coalition. Their contribution is featured among tracks by other notable artists such as Feist, Muse, Deerhoof, Bloc Party, A Place To Bury Strangers and many more. 100% of profits from the album sales will be donated to the EAC, to support their efforts to raise environmental awareness in our community.
