Violent Femmes share video for "Memory," tour (2016)

Violent Femmes premiered the video for the first single, “Memory,” from their new album today. The clip was created and animated by Harley Hefford, an Australian video director and fan of Violent Femmes who created last year’s “Good For/At Nothing” music video for the band off their Record Store Day EP.  Hefford used a collage-style animation to create a fictional narrative where a giraffe (inspired by the album’s artwork) reminisces with founding band members Gordon Gano and Brian Ritchie who share made-up memories from their past.

Violent Femmes’ new album WE CAN DO ANYTHING was released on March 4 ([PIAS]). The band recently confirmed the first North American dates of their upcoming world tour.
