It's been awhile since we last heard from the Violent Femmes, who announced a new album, We Can Do Anything, this week. It will be their first album in 16 years.
The members went their separate ways in 2009 due to a lawsuit initiated by a former member. They reunited four years later with a slightly different lineup; Dresden Dolls' drummer Brian Viglione replaced original drummer Victor DeLorenzo. They previously released a four-song EP for year's Record Store Day and are now back with their first album since their reunion.
We Can Do Anything is set to be released March 4.
