Description

Kurt Vile & the Violators are a rock band from Philadelphia PA, United States. The band draws influences from lo-fi, psychedelic and classic rock. Founded by frontman Kurt Vile (guitar, vocals), the band currently consists of Jesse Turbo (guitar, slide), Mike Zeng (percussion) and Adam Granduciel (guitar, bass).

Kurt and Adam have played music together ever since the early 00s with each one contributing to the others projects, most notably in The War On Drugs which is fronted by Granducial. Calling the current band the ultimate line-up yet, Kurt has said, I used to call previous bands of mine Kurt Vile & the Violators, but now if its not us four together, its not called Kurt Vile & the Violators. Its kind of like Neil Young & Crazy Horse. He wouldnt call it Crazy Horse if it wasnt those guys.

The band released The Hunchback EP on Richie Records on March 25, 2009.
