Violent Femmes share new video; on tour now‏

Violent Femmes have released a new video for the song “Issues.” Getting its premiere on Noisey, the NSFW video portrays a stick-figure couple working out every aspect of their relationship, making it the feel-good video of the summer.

“Video director David Gladstein has distilled the musical and sociological anxiety embodied in the song into a pithy and minimalist stick figure drama,” bassist Brian Ritchie told Noisey. “Anyone who has ever been in a problematic relationship will laugh, cry and laugh again.”

Violent Femmes are in the midst of a long summer tour in support of their latest album WE CAN DO ANYTHING, released March 4 ([PIAS]). For updates and ticket information, please visit www.vfemmes.com/tour.

WE CAN DO ANYTHING is available now at all leading online music retailers. Order the album on DIGITAL, CD or VINYL. Last month the band premiered the video for the first single, “Memory,” from their new album via Record Store Day. The clip was created and animated by Harley Hefford, an Australian video director and fan of Violent Femmes who created last year’s “Good For/At Nothing” music video for the band off their Record Store Day EP. Watch the video for “Memory” HERE. To kick off the release of WE CAN DO ANYTHING, Violent Femmes made their first network TV live appearance in 16 years, performing “Memory” on CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert. They also performed their legendary song, “Blister In the Sun,” with Colbert on vocals. The video was seen everywhere and even became the #1 trending topic on Facebook the day it was released.
