The March Violets have been at the forefront of the UK's post-punk movement for over 30 years. During this time they have recorded sessions with John Peel, produced some of the scenes' most well known tracks and critically acclaimed songs which blend together atmospheric and driving melodies with poetical and sometimes abstract lyrics. Since their reunion they have used crowd funding to independently produce their first complete album Made Glorious with all new material (there have been numerous LPs and EPs collected together but not many bands have taken 30

years to make their debut album).

At the same time as the band emerging to new successes, 2013 has also been an exciting time for the bands members, with Rosie's debut published novel The Palace of Curiosities receiving glowing reviews from the national press and entering the Waterstones Top Sellers section, whilst Tom has been working on soundtracks for a number of independent US films and both Si and Jo have been producing new material through their side projects.

Don't miss this rare opportunity.

If this wasn’t enough – we launched our Pledgemusic Mortality Tour and Album
http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/mortality
“The ‘Mortality Tour and Album’ is the new Pledge from the March Violets. Throughout October 2015 pledgers get to experience a month of touring around the East Coast, with Backstage Action, Road Movie high jinx and other Purple nonsense. The Violets will be playing classic tracks live, then recording them in November in Chicago. With exclusive daily footage and a virtual Access Pass pledgers will be able to participate in the highs and lows of the entire Tour and Studio Saga. The involvement continues right up to Xmas 2015, with an Advent Calendar with interesting Violet goodies behind each door, culminating in the Album download on Xmas day 2015!
Physical ‘exclusives’, that will be shipped after Xmas, include a Double CD, a Vinyl LP and a double DVD with a full concert, a road movie, and footage from the entire life of the band, right back to the early Eighties. It’s a new way of touring that DOES come to your home town, social media at its rocking best. Support the Violets, Pledge Purple! Many Thanks.

    'Because goddess is never enough' - a new film-poem!
    ‘Because goddess is never enough’ – revealing the new film poem, made in collaboration with filmmaker Jane Glennie.

    Absolutely thrilled to announce this new film poem – created over 2021 in collaboration with amazing filmaker Jane Glennie. Inspired by the life of dancer and choreographer Tilly Losch, the film explores notions of erasure, strategies for persistence and the centrality of creative expression for the life of a woman in perpetual motion.

    We are delighted with the reception the film is receiving! A list of film festivals is below.

    Sept 2022 - The March Violets announce 5 CD boxset release!
    Announcing the Novemeber 18th 2022 release of 'The Palace of Infinite Darkness'

    It's 40 years since The March Violets released our 1st 7" EP (seriously, FORTY).
    So it’s a great time to announce that this tasty 5 CD Box Set is now up for pre order from Jungle Records!
    The Palace of Infinite Darkness - In addition to all the singles plus all the extended versions, the box has six excellent BBC sessions, 23 tracks with 9 unreleased songs (also reissued as Big Soul Kiss 2LP yellow vinyl after a sold-out RSD release). Then there are two whole discs of unreleased demo sessions – one from the early period 1982-84 and another from 1985-87. Founder-member Rosie Garland recounts the band’s story in a 44-page booklet.

    June 2022 - 100 Queer Poems anthology

    Thrilled and honoured to have my poem ‘Now that you are not-you’ featured in this groundbreaking new anthology!

    ‘Mary Jean Chan and Andrew McMillan's luminous anthology, 100 Queer Poems, is a celebration of thrilling contemporary voices and visionary poets of the past. Featuring Elizabeth Bishop, Langston Hughes, Ocean Vuong, Carol Ann Duffy, Kae Tempest and many more.

    Encompassing both the flowering of queer poetry over the past few decades and the poets who came before and broke new ground, 100 Queer Poems presents an electrifying range of writing from the twentieth century to the present day.’

    Jan 2022 - 'Why I Write Poetry' (Nine Arches Press)
    ‘Why I Write Poetry’

    I’m honoured – my essay ‘Don’t Fence Me In’ is included in this wonderful collection! (Nine Arches Press, ed Ian Humphreys)

    ‘What motivates poets in the 21st century? How do they find their voice? What themes and subject matters inspire them? How do they cope with set-backs and deal with success? What keeps them writing?

    In Why I Write Poetry twenty-five contemporary poets reflect with insight, wit and wisdom on the writing life, each offering their distinctive take on what inspires and spurs them on to write poetry. Also - individual writing prompts to help you create your own new poetry.’
