New New Violators – “Your Devilish Eyes”

Band to watch and Puppet Show alum New Violators are back in Trondheim, Norway after their wave of NYC and Austin shows in March, adding to the queue of unreleased gems by writing and recording even more (still don’t even have anything out yet). Journos are quick to call out The Cure, Echo & the Bunnymen, Moz, and U2 as sonic touch points — all undeniable — but on this great new cut we’ll take the last of that list (some young Bono) and throw in Oranges & Lemons XTC.

Not much to report on album and tour info just yet, but we’ll keep ya posted.
