Violet Tears rose in 1998 from the ashes of three different dark music groups in the Bari area.
The group’s members got together and clicked immediately.
After some serious, full-immersion jamming in the rehearsal room, the band immediately got some gigs: ticket sales rose steadily and audience interest in this new group grew sharply.
After two years of jamming together, doing gigs together – even getting into trouble together – Violet Tears decided to record «Fragments of Broken Dreams», a debut mcd made up of six songs.
«Fragments of Broken Dreams», excellently reviewed in Europe and Italy, has been produced from the Italian label Anaemic Waves Factory in a limited edition of 100 copies only, which quickly sold out.
During 2006 the first full length album of Violet Tears, «Cold memories & remains», has been published from the American label The Fossil Dungeon and the band recorded a new work, called «Breeze of Solitude».
The “Tears” will publish «Breeze of Solitude» in November 2007 for the Italian label Ark Records.
The combo is actually composed by Carmen De Rosas (voice), Claudio Contessa (voice, guitars and bass), Claudio Cinnella (guitars, bass, keyboards, synths, piano & programming) and Gianluca Altamura (drums and programming).
