Pleasure Venom - photo by Victoria RenardPleasure Venom are our new favourite post-punk band from Austen TX, as evidenced by today’s video premiere for their ferociously inviting single, ‘Hive’. Driving punkrock beats, gnarly guitars, righteous vocals, DIY video = perfection. Pleasure Venom have it all in spades, and they’re bringing it to our shores this autumn … stay tuned for news of a UK tour in association with LOUD WOMEN Festival.

As we speak, the band are heading out on tour supporting Garbage:
May 10 New Orleans The Fillmore
May 12 San Antonio The Aztec Theatre
May 14 Denver The Summit Music Hall
