In the wake of their American debut at SXSW, buzzworthy Brits Palma Violets are preparing to return to the US for two sets of dates. On April 15, 16, and 18, they'll be warming up West Coast audiences in support of Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand, then they'll take on the States for a headline tour in May in support of recently-released debut album 180.
The band broke through in their native England when videos of their raucous underground shows hit the internet, and they're hoping to generate the same hype on the other side of the pond with a series of house parties while they're on tour. They took to Facebook earlier today with a message for US fans: "If we're in your city on this tour you give us a house to play and we'll sort you out a proper party."
Interested? Drop by Facebook and let them know where they can hold their next gig. No word yet on where they'll be setting up shop in cities like San Francisco, Toronto, and of course Philadelphia, but announcements should arrive in the coming weeks. If you can't make it to the house party, the London quartet will play Johnny Brenda's on May 12.
