Palma Violets Announce New Album + Tour Dates

The new LP from this British quartet, Danger in the Club, will be out on 5 May via Rough Trade.

The rambunctious indie rockers of the Palma Violets have announced the release of their new record, Danger in the Club, following a particularly eventful week at the 2015 South by Southwest music festival. After one spirited evening at the Parish venue, the band had to be forcibly removed from the stage for playing past the assigned curfew. For an audio sample of Palma Violets' take on rock 'n' roll, as well as tour dates where you can catch their energetic live show, read more below.

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
