From the depths of Brisbane’s conservative right,
also known as the one and only suburb of
Mansfield, fully encompassed by the holy postcode,
4122, comes Violent Soho.
Violent Soho began playing music together in their teens, who embraced an 80’s and 90’s punk–grunge impact to their music without disregarding the ethic that ideally follows from such influence. The band has since then gone on its way to creating an energetic live show. From its beginnings, playing shows at outer-suburban pubs and rehearsing and recording demos in their parents' garages.
Violent Soho has toured extensively across the
globe as well as played shows with such bands as
Dinosaur Jr, Built to Spill, Trail of Dead, The Black Keys, The Bronx, Black Francis, Dead Weather, The Grates, Grinspoon, Cosmic Psychos, Celibate
Rifles, Hard-Ons, and others. They've played many
festivals around Australia including Homebake,
Meredith, Falls Festival, Laneway Festival and featured on this year's line-up for Download Festival in the UK.
