By popular demand, Kurt Vile & The Violators have announced a second Melbourne show on 5 Jan at Max Watt's, with special guests Gold Class and Constant Mongrel.

For those wondering, there are still a handful of tickets left for the band's show at Forum Theatre on 3 Jan with Twerps and Scott & Charlene's Wedding, but these will go in a flash if they haven't already.

Kurt Vile & The Violators will be in the country, riding off the back of their latest album B'lieve I'm Goin Down..., to play as part of the Falls Festivals and Southbound.  

Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth wrote in her artist biography for Vile's new album: "Kurt does his own myth making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air.... a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history ("valley of ashes") of woody honest strait forward talk guthrie, and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of singer songwriter upcycling."
