The Violet Hour
Ignite the powerful flame of passion. Rekindle the faintest flicker of hope. Incinerate any regret, and watch our past mistakes and bad decisions crumble and wither to ashes that float away on the breeze. Warm our hands. Thaw our hearts. Embrace the fire within us and feel the heat consume any lingering doubt. Let it burn, as we in turn, touch our flame to the next torch and watch it, too, ignite.
The members of The Violet Hour know what it's like to be downtrodden, to face an uphill battle, to be unemployed, sick, injured, or depressed. We know what it feels like to lose someone you love, to be unlucky, unpopular, an outcast, and most of all... To be human. "I was never a popular person growing up. I was always that nerdy band and orchestra girl," says lead singer Alli. "Music has always been a refuge for me, and that's what the guys in The Violet Hour and I want our music to be for our fans - a safe place to experience all the emotions of life, get inspired, and realize you are not alone. That's what 'Ignite' is all about."
"Ignite" will be available worldwide February 18, 2017, and available for pre-sale on February 11, 2017.
The Violet Hour began as a big dream and a small acoustic duo in the Fall of 2010. From 2010-2012, The Violet Hour grew from duo to band, from local to regional, and by 2013 had established a strong regional presence in the mid-south U.S. In 2014, the band continued to grow and break into new territory, beginning with a trip to the East Coast in March. While in New York, The Violet Hour performed on The Real Radio Show in Long Island alongside a legend, Mark “The Animal” Mendoza of classic hair metal band Twisted Sister. After The Violet Hour’s performance, Mendoza said, “Forget about ‘Black Oak Arkansas.’ They need to change the name of Fort Smith to ‘The Violet Hour, Arkansas.’ These guys are the real deal!” In 2015, The Violet Hour kept the southern highways hot, traveling from Arkansas to Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Missouri. In 2016, The Violet Hour returned to the East Coast on the Insomniac Tour, a cross-promotion with drummer, Jake’s, show Wired Insomnia Podcast.
In 2017, fans can expect to see The Violet Hour on the “Ignite” tour promoting the new album through the Midwest and Southeast US in AR, OK, TX, TN, MO, CO, NV, UT, AZ, AL, and FL.
Alli and Instigator Jon, along with Jake on drums, Tye Tanic on guitar, and The Punisher Jeff on bass have developed a classic yet alternative sound that ranges from sections of haunting vocals to roaring anthems to melodic metal grooves. The unique sound creation was described perfectly by the late music reviewer Jon Kirk Edwards when he said, “The throaty vibrations and high grade amped up vocals are delivered without apology and with a masterful mix of Hard Rock. Folksy grunge with enough clarity to know you are in the room with some gifted folks who play to a generation beyond the 70’s.”
