Hotly tipped Sheffield rockers The Violet May play Liverpool Mojo as part of their headline UK tour, featuring Chris McClure, the brother of Reverend & The Makers' Jon McClure. With support from Aussie band All Mankind.

The Violet May have been creating havoc on the live scene since forming in 2009, and are seen by many as the remedy to the mass of twee indie acts currently on the scene. A debut video shot by Douglas Hart of Jesus & Mary Chain and support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, XFM, Clash, Guardian, Artrocker and The Sun have been backed by performances at the likes of Leeds Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boardmasters Festival, and opening the Energy Sessions Festival for Band Of Skulls and The Boxer Rebellion.

Chris McClure, frontman of the band, said of the tour: "We are like animals locked in a cage at the moment, we are on a mission to show people that guitar music still has a heartbeat, they don't need to settle for the vaccines or viva brother. Leave your pretenses at home and come check us out"
