Violens for Fashion Week

Brooklyn band Violens will make their Fashion Week debut, scoring menswear designer Patrik Ervell‘s 2008 Show (tracklist below). The score is a re-imagining of the group’s music, recorded as instrumental marches, and a very limited edition release of this production will be available to show attendees. Singer/Producer Jorge Elbrecht is also doing the music for Rogan‘s SS09 show, and had previously contributed his talents to runway shows by Erin Fetherston, Proenza Schouler (as a member of Lansing-Dreiden), Yigal Azrouel, Michael Angel, and Victor Glemaud.

On the heels of a sold-out tour of the Northeast US together, Violens are thrilled to announce more dates with MGMT this November. Following the release of singer/producer Jorge Elbrecht’s remix of their single “Time to Pretend”, MGMT asked Violens to join them on dates between a busy schedule of summer festivals, and the package will now cross the pond for a string of dates that are quickly selling out major clubs across the UK! Stay tuned for additional shows in London, and release plans for Violens international debut.
