They’ve become the undisputed gods of Australian indie rock and part of that can be attributed to their goof and tomfoolery on and off the stage.


How To Taste’s new video is perfect disclosure of the exuberance and cheekiness that has characterised them so strongly over their journey.


Check out the antics below:

Violent Soho are once again hitting the road, backed by some fierce company. 


It comes in the wake of Violent Soho's latest album, WACO, which took them on a completely sold out tour. Showing no signs of slowing down, they're back at it with special guests The Bronx, Luca Brasi and Tired Lion.

The second of three sold-out Forum shows for Violent Soho’s Waco tour delivered an incredible lineup of punk-inflected Australian rock, with DZ Deathrays and Dune Rats also on the lineup.
And then there was opening support act, Newcastle’s The Gooch Palms, who kicked things off at 7.30pm. Though, their melodic 1960s surf rock throwback didn’t elicit much of a reaction...

Mansfield's biggest export, Violent Soho, had a huge start to 2016. Not only did their single Like Soda score a top 20 spot in the triple j Hottest 100, they did the rounds nationally as a part of the Laneway Festival. Despite the array of notable international acts on the bill, Soho were a major drawcard – they even attracted the largest crowd of the day in their native Brisbane. “They were...

Fresh off the back of a Last Dinosaurs support tour, Palms are a great opener. Their effortlessly cool garage pop punk has no problem getting a few bodies moving. The big ones from the first album are still the winners for me, but Beatdown is an earworm.
As the lights go down and The Smith Street Band’s Young Drunk comes over the speakers, the excited crowd is already...

Ben Lee is smiling, seducing the audience’s gaze with his bright pink shirt. The intimate Howler provides a cosy mood for an acoustic set, as Lee promises to spruik a handful of new songs. The songs are sweet and poppy and give much away as to where he is currently at as an artist and a man.
Accompanied by guitarist Dave Rogers and keyboardist Sophie Koh, a cheerful Ben...

When I saw Violent Soho in August last year for a Hungry Ghostpreview show it was evident that they were a band on the precipice greatness. Tonight’s sold-out performance at The Hi-Fi was a thundering avalanche in the affirmative of that feeling I had on first hearing all the material from Violent Soho’s third album. This affirmation was further ratified by the fact that this was the second of...

The quartet's latest release, Holy Ghost debuted at #6 on the ARIA charts and catapulted them even further onto the scene. Now in their tenth year as a band, they are signed to Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace! label and have toured the US with acts such as Built to Spill...
