THE VIOLET VIOLENCE CONFRONT THE FEARS OF INTIMACY IN THEIR NEW SINGLE "NOVOCAINE"
I’m back again to tell you about a new band I have recently been playing on a loop, The Violent Violence. The Baltimore locals are a 5 piece pop punk band composed of Pat Collins, Tim Lyons, Nick Patrick, Chandler Adams, and Bryan Dorbert. Now, when I saw that they followed me on Twitter, I noticed that this band has an iconic vibe, and I’m really excited to see where they go from here. Today, The Violet Violence released their new single, ‘Novocaine,’ which Pat from The Violet Violence explains as:
“The song is about the emotions surrounding a deteriorating relationship and how we numb ourselves in breakup.”
- Pat Collins, The Violent Violence (Vocals)
The single begins with an upbeat melody with the very apparent sounds of drumming, making this the pop punk vibes immaculate. This relatable song tells the story of how most relationships end and the troubling feelings that come after a breakup. In this song, The Violet Violence retells the story of the conflict of different sides in a breakup and how the story gets twisted eventually. I have also gotten the chance to see the spotify video, which following the recent release of their song, you can now see on Spotify, and it is so fun and relatable to the song.
“I’m here debating if we can make amends my heart is racing, while i think about the end while you’re replacing, all the words I’ve said.”
- Novocaine, The Violet Violence
During my time writing with Punkaganda, I have heard many great bands, and The Violet Violence has definitely been one of my favorites. Actually, I’m really looking forward to the promised release of their debut EP, “Above The Echoes,” which should be released this year.
