Palma Violets announce details of two intimate gigs

Band will play in Scunthorpe and London later this month as part of Independent Venue Week

Palma Violets have announced details of two intimate gigs to take place at the end of the month as part of Independent Venue Week.

The band, who will headline the NME Awards Tour with Austin, Texas in February, will play live in Scunthorpe and London. The Scunthorpe gig takes place at The Lincoln Imp on January 30 with the band then returning home to London for a gig at The Sebright Arms the following day. See below for more information and ticket details.

Support in Scunthorpe comes from Ming City Rockers and The Carnabys while Good.Sad.Happy.Bad. will support in London.


The Rough Trade band released their debut, ‘180’, in February 2013, and are currently working on the follow-up which is due for release this year.

“There are so many new songs, nearly 20 at the moment, but we’re narrowing them down and we’ll change it up, throw things in,” bassist Chilli Jesson recently told NME. “Of course the new stuff is a step forward, but the main thing I wanted to do is not go too far. We’re still holding on to what we started a band for – there’s no eight-minute jams. It’s all to the point, as it should be.”

Palma Violets will play:

Scunthorope The Lincoln Imp (January 30)
London Sebright Arms (31)

Tickets for the NME Awards Tour 2015 with Austin, Texas are available now.
