Just one day after teasing fans with new material thanks to a billboard, Mansfield rockers Violent Soho have today dropped a new acoustic track, ‘A-OK’.
With early 2020 set to serve as the four year anniversary of Violent Soho’s fourth album, WACO, the band began to tease the release of… something in the near future thanks to a new billboard yesterday.
First shared by the band’s I Oh You record label, the billboard is located on the side of a building on Punt Road in Melbourne, and bears the words “There’s a Baby Boomer across the street, and it won’t stop staring at me,” with “Violent Soho” written beneath.
While it could have been interpreted as some sort of poster in honour of the band, Violent Soho themselves confirmed its legitimacy, later sharing the post on social media and writing “A-Ok Boomer ” as the caption.
So what does this mean? Well, the band have been relatively quiet lately, not performing anywhere near as many gigs as fans would like, and keeping it all under wraps when it comes to the topic of new music.
However, Violent Soho decided to treat their fans to something special this morning, dropping the acoustic track ‘A-OK’ with little fanfare.
Paired by a video consisting of a single shot of a suburban Australian house, the track is classic Violent Soho, with their furious vocals and electric guitars replaced by a softly-spoken delivery and acoustic instruments.
It’s a change of pace for the rockers, but undoubtedly a sign that they’re gearing up to treat us to some more music in the near future.
In related news, Violent Soho are set to perform on the Good Things lineup next month, meaning that fans might get a bit of a sneak peek into new material when they grace stages in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.
