"Roadhouse Manchester - Live Review"

When you live, eat and breathe music it really shows, and Stockport's Violet Youth are living proof of this. With a handful of ferocious, well written spiky guitar driven songs they absolutely rock the Roadhouse tonight.

A successful tour of Germany at the end of last year has helped to hone their live show and they sound great - you can tell that they are enjoying themselves onstage. There’s a camaraderie and on stage banter you only get from enjoying what you do.

They've really started to find their sound of late, with Phil Higgins’ guitar and Andrew Schofield’s lyrics leading tracks like Carla’s Song to have enjoyed a lot of exposure recently.

Schoeys' delivery combined with massive choruses on tracks like new song Together sounds like a love hug between Carter USM and Arcade Fire... which causes a post song sing along from the crowd. - Love-Manchester

"Carla's Song Review"

This single finds a guy with a heavy British accent rattling off clever spoken-word lyrics over agitated post-punk. So this is definitely my kind of thing. Maybe it’s yours, too?

We've been together for around 3 years now, we practice at Moolah Rouge studio’s in Stockport and have been playing gigs and gaining fans locally around Manchester, this has involved supporting bands such as Nine Black Alps and playing Manchester Pride and MAPS Festival. We’ve also recently just returned from a short tour around Germany taking in cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, Osnabruck and Wuppertal. Back home we have played in venues in Camden, Hammersmith, Sheffield, Blackburn, Southport and Manchester

We released our first single (Carla’s Song) independently both online and in CD format during August 2010 which did well and was often featured on BBC Manchester Introducing, we then played for BBC Radio Manchester at the ruby lounge for a 40 years of broadcasting celebration where we supported ‘May 68’. We also ended 2010 by supporting 'Sham 69' And 'The Chapman Family'

Thank you,
Violet Youth
