First Album Since 2000's Freak Magnet!

The Violent Femme's ninth studio album, "We Can Do Anything", comes 16 years after their previous release "Freak Magnet". Gordon Gano, Brian Ritchie, and Brian Viglione make up the line-up for the March 2016 release. We Can Do Anything is among the most provocative and playful in the legendary trio’s remarkable canon. As the album’s title makes plain, the band remains as intrepid and fearless as ever before, traversing genre and emotion via their immediately identifiable, still utterly idiosyncratic, mash of rambunctious folk, minimalist punk, cubist blues, cosmic jazz, and backwoods rock ‘n’ roll.

It's no surprise that the latest song from Violent Femmes, "Memory," feels like a classic. Frontman Gordon Gano actually wrote it a long time ago. "We even recorded it as a demo many years ago," he tells NPR Music via email. "And then it was forgotten about until digging into [our] archives, which led us to record it anew and release it."

"We Can Do Anything fits comfortably with the Femme's catalog including their angsty 1983 eponymous debut, which spawned the college-radio hits "Blister In The Sun" and "Gone Daddy Gone." But with misfits Gano and Ritchie settled into middle age, and with families of their own, the new album is not afraid to deliver big goofy fun." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound, 3.5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics
