The Vaccines and Palma Violets link up for Splendour sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney

Friday, April 24, 2015

It's been a crazy day of  Splendour sideshow announcements, and it's about to get even more intense with The Vaccines and Palma Violets announcing shows in Melbourne and Sydney. 

The last time these superstar UK bands made their way to Aussie shores was when the Vaccines appeared at Falls Festival and Palma Violets at Splendour, both in 2013.

Formed in 2010, The Vaccines have taken post-punk revival to another level. With 2 LPs in their catalogue, and an upcoming LP due for release next month, fans can effect a setlist that will be dynamic and diverse. The band's third LP English Graffiti is due for release on May 25th, and has been produced by Dave Fridmann (Weezer, The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala and Neil Finn) and Cole M. Greif-Neill (Ariel Pink and Snoop Dogg).

Palma Violets have been killin' the scene since 2011 and have 1 LP to their name, released in 2013. On May 4th, they're due to release Danger in the Club. In 2014, they were nominated for the NME Award's 'Best British Band' and 'Best Live Band'.
