Palma Violets

London rockers draw upon their outrageous live shows in new clip

Like any meaningful relationship or a really good taco stand, music with true, long-lasting value has a tendency to hit you when least expected.

Assembled sometime in 2011, English rockers Palma Violets (bassist/vocalist Alexander “Chilli” Jesson, guitarist/vocalist Sam Fryer, keyboardist Peter Mayhew, and drummer Will Doyle) don’t so much play on stage as they conquer it like 6th century barbarians.

They are known for their rowdy, balls-to-the-wall live shows. We’ve seen them beat the hell out of their songs at Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, SXSW 2013, and  Jimmy Kimmel’s late night show. Now, their dynamic stage presence is the focus of their new music video for 180 standout “Rattlesnake Highway”.  Directed by Douglas Hart, the clip  intercuts with some outrageous archival footage of Pentecostal snake handlers., but mostly awesome live footage that makes you want to see Palma Violets in the flesh ASAP.

See Palma Violets up close and personal on their extensive fall/winter tour, including appearances at Treasure Island Music Festival and The Weezer Cruise.
