FREUDLP140 cover LP purple mockup 225pxTHE MARCH VIOLETS ‘Made Glorious’ The March Violets ‘difficult’ debut album is now on vinyl for the first time and on CD with wider distribution - on the eve of their 2023 tour.

Coming to prominence in the 1980’s, the band’s six indie singles made a big impact on the indie chart, and were a prelude to the major-label deal. The singles were compiled for successful UK and USA albums – but the album they threatened never appeared.

Twenty-five years later, original band-members reconvened for tours of the UK and USA. A single and video of Dandelion King was issued in 2011. Unfinished business included an album, and Made Glorious was given a release in 2013. However, DIY economics and events intervened to make it a restricted, limited Pledge Music CD album, much to the disappointment of many.

The 2LP vinyl was a purple vinyl Record Store Day release in the UK on April 22 and the CD in a card gatefold sleeve follows. The Made Glorious line-up is Rosie Garland, Si Denbigh, Joanna Moy and Tom Ashton.  The CD and streaming release come on May 26 just prior to their UK and Europe live dates, listed below.
