PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sure the Violent Femmes are not a band we really focus on here on PiercingMetal.com but sometimes we like to mix things up with our tour announcements because there are a wide variety of Heavy Music fans like assorted stuff. If you like them please chime in and let us know what you think about the tour and if you will attend.
