Clarence garage rock trio Made Violent – vocalist and bassist Joe White, drummer Justin Acee and guitarist Bobby Romano – is well on its way to becoming the next kings of rock radio. The trio’s songs already have been featured locally and overseas. The band has toured extensively around the northeast and recently finished a critically acclaimed show at London’s Old Blue Last.

Made Violent’s sound can best be described as taking the best of both the early 2000’s alternative scene (a la the Strokes) and new blood garage groups like Cage the Elephant and Bass Drum of Death. Check out the singles “You Had it Easy” and “Dirty” for a healthy dose of grit and old school rock ‘n’ roll values.

The band’s music also is available for download on iTunes. Check out
