about us

The Violet Parade 

Deep but approachable, varied but melodic. That’s the motto of The Violet Parade. With a rich palet of influences, this band from Amsterdam/Leiden plays catchy indierock.

With dynamic songs filled with catchy choruses and surprising transitions, this new band is ready to conquer the Netherlands. The Violet Parade was formed by old members of Monokuro, a band that played a series of successful gigs in several venues. A new bass player gave them a fresh impulse, so a restyling was needed, and really, inevitable.

The band members find it difficult to compare their music with others, but if they really must: The Violet Parade combines the dreamy style of Slowdive with the dynamics of Foals and the rough edges of Joy Division. But they have an unmistakable sound all their own, melodic and compelling. Accessible, but never predictable. Now it is time to play their music everywhere. If you like energetic indie-rock, this can’t be missed. 

Band members:

Erik Nusselder (vocals)
Michiel Kuis (drums)
