Palma Violets share new track ‘English Tongue’ – listen

It's the second song revealed from the band's upcoming album 'Danger In The Club'

Palma Violets has dropped a new track, titled ‘English Tongue’.

‘English Tongue’ is the second cut lifted from their second album, ‘Danger In The Club’. The album will be released on May 4, with its title-track previously unveiled.

Listen to ‘English Tongue’ below, premiering last night (March 31) on Huw Stephens’ BBC Radio 1 show.


Drummer Will Doyle recently spoke to NME about the band’s upcoming LP. “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 band have announced a UK tour for April, having recently appeared on the NME Awards Tour with Austin, Texas.

Palma Violets will play:

Southend Chinnerys (April 16)
Norwich Waterfront (17)
Hull Fruit (20)
York Duchess (21)
Wakefield Hop (22)
