La Promenade Violence is an alternative indie band based in Haarlem, the Netherlands. In the characteristic dark sound of La Promenade Violence, influences can be heard from the English New Wave bands of the 80s and 90s such as Joy Division, and more recent Indie rock bands such as Interpol & Editors. The band consists of different nationalities. Singer Justin Jackson (UK), guitarist Stefano Girardi (Italy), bass and keyboard player Martijn Vonck (Peru) and Drummer Phil Dolfini (Italy) founded La Promenade Violence in early 2023 and immediately started writing their own work and recording and releasing their first 3 singles. These singles were all well received and immediately picked up by various Dutch radio stations.

As a successor to these singles, La Promenade Violence entered the studio early 2024 to record their 4 track debut EP. On Saturday April 20, La Promenade Violence launched their debut EP with their first live show at the Slachthuis, Haarlem. The show sold out in advance, which shows how quickly La Promenade Violence managed to reach new audiences on its own.

3 voor 12: “Tight guitar lines with which you can't really call it an indie band, but more of an indie rock band. The dark sound is a bit like Joy Division and there is a sound that reminds you of English bands from the eighties.
