Violent Soho are an Australian rock band from Mansfield, Queensland. Band members Luke Boerdam, James Tidswell, Luke Henry and Michael Richards attended school together and formed Violent Soho in 2004. Their debut EP, Pigs and T.V., was released in early 2006 and received wide acclaim; ‘Blunt Magazine’ hailing Violent Soho’s Vines-esque sound as “boisterous pop rock reviving the spirit of the grunge era. ” Following the release of their debut EP, the band continued to play shows in and around Brisbane, and several shows in Sydney and Melbourne and elsewhere on the east coast. Notably, they toured with The Grates in 2007. They were also part of the lineup for the 2008 St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, playing in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.

Violent Soho toured with Faker and Grafton Primary in May 2008, playing songs from their first full length album We Don’t Belong Here, which was released on 7 June 2008 on the Emergency Music label. Following the release they toured all around Australia, then played shows in London, New York and Los Angeles in November 2008 before returning home to play more shows and summer festivals, such as Homebake, The Meredith Music Festival, Falls Festival and Southbound Festival.

On 20 February 2009, Violent Soho announced on their MySpace page that they had signed an “overwhelmingly exciting” deal with Ecstatic Peace! Records, a record company headed by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, a hero of the band.
