Prime Time Violence

Prime Time Violence are the unexpected lottery win. They’re the ‘fun story’ at the end of the TV news. But above all they’re a group of four friends tied together by their music.

Our purpose is not to create the world’s most challenging guitar riff, or the most kickass drum solo. We want to create meaning for our lives. For that we are prepared to devote time, effort and money. Every minute spent carrying equipment in the cold is rewarded when the crowd shout for an encore. Then we feel alive, not merely existing.

We don’t educate, we revelate. We have a voice which we want to be heard.
