Palma Violets confirm second album release date – watch

London band are currently headlining NME Awards Tour 2015 with Austin, Texas

Palma Violets have confirmed their second album, ‘Danger In The Club’ will be released on May 4, and say it finds the band at their “most creative”.

NME caught up with the band backstage at Newcastle Academy on Saturday where they played the third date on the NME Awards Tour 2015 with Austin, Texas.

Drummer Will Doyle said: “[The album is] coming out this year. Can we say when? Are we allowed?” His bandmate Chilli Jesson, bassist, interrupted: “May. I said it.”

Doyle also spoke about the album itself. “It’s hard to sum it up in just a few words,” he said. “It means such a great deal to us and hopefully we’ve managed to record that. It was good, we went in with [producer] John Leckie in Rockfield [studio] and some other places and he kind of just let us do our thing and helped us out with the songs and writing them. We’re at our most creative on this album.”

The remaining NME Awards Tour with Austin, Texas dates are as follows:

Nottingham Rock City (24)
Manchester Ritz (26)
Oxford O2 Academy (27)
Birmingham Institute (28)
Bristol O2 Academy (March 2)
