Seminal alt-rockers The Violent Femmes have just announced We Can Do Anything, their first full-length release in 16 years. Their last album was 2000's Freak Magnet. We Can Do Anything, due out March 4, will be their ninth LP.
The album was recorded while the group was on tour this past summer, and features art drawn by Kevin Hearn of the Barenaked Ladies -- the two bands were on the road together. The new set of songs were mostly selected from frontman Gordon Gano's collection of old demos, though Sam Hollander, Dave Katz and Better Than Ezra's Kevin Griffin also assisted with writing duties.
