Having formed over 11 years ago, it’s fair to say that Violent Soho have slogged their way past every inch to get where they are today. A history that includes being signed to Thurston Moore’s (of Sonic Youth) label, moving to the US for two years and touring with their heroes such as Alice in Chains, Dinosaur Jr and Built To Spill and eventually moving back to Australia because things hadn’t really panned out. Then in 2013 Violent Soho, seemingly out of nowhere, propelled themselves into the hearts and stereos of many around the world with wildly well-received LP; ARIA Gold accredited Hungry Ghost.
In November 2015, Soho smashed back on to our airwaves with “Like Soda” (#15 in triple j Hottest 100) the first single from their fourth full length ARIA #1 album WACO, which they recorded at The Shed Recording Studios in Brisbane with producer and friend Bryce Moorhead, and released in March 2016 via I Oh You. Since then, fans have been lapping up the record, collectively losing their minds over subsequent singles “Viceroy”, “So Sentimental” and current head banger “Blanket”.
