Already receiving rave reviews - "Krautrock. If there’s any music guaranteed to send me into hypnotised hazy rapture, this is it. And by jove, The Violet Roadkills have delivered up an excellent album in the form of Lead Kindly Light. I’ve only listened to the album for the first time this morning in one sitting and by the time the first track was over, felt confident that this was going to be something I loved. Did not disappoint" (Harmless Noise).
The Violet Roadkills are to play the main stage at this years Sea Sessions and supported UK act Public Broadcasting Service on the Dublin leg of their European tour.
