Published Feb 17, 2015UK indie rockers Palma Violets are set to follow up 2013's debut album 180 with a new full-length effort titled Danger in the Club.
The band's sophomore LP is slated to arrive on May 5 through Rough Trade.
Palma Violets recruited producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, the Fall) for the new material, which was recorded at Rockfield Studio in Wales.
They've been testing out the new material at raucous live shows recently, but the recordings really showcase how the group have grown creatively. According to a press release, they've "developed into first class songwriters and honed their own unique sound."
"We wanted to make a young-sounding record," said bassist/singer Chilli Jesson. "We listened to a lot of pre-punk while we were making the album. We like its rawness and simplicity. A lot of bands want to over-complicate their second album, we know that we didn't."
The album art is pictured above, and you can see the full tracklisiting for the forthcoming 13-song collection below. If you scroll past that, you can check out the new video for Danger in the Club's title track. The clip was shot in one continuous take by director Roger Sargent, and the footage was filmed at the band's local London pub, the Pinaepple.
