"Outside your door" is a sonorous run through the rooms of the time, an homage to the lost affections and the innocence lost. Nine unrealised traks that draw origin in the undergrounds of the conscience: home will be anywhere we'll admit the uncontrollable lack of harmony of life.

The "Lyrics" page has been updated with "Outside your door" lyrics, available in Italian and English version.

Hallo everybody! The summer it's getting hot, but we are still working on the forthcoming album "Breeze of Solitude". We decided to put off the recording of the new songs, prefering to look after their sound in the best possible way. We just recorded a demo in July, "the summer sessions", including all the new tracks and some covers. At the moment the recording of "Breeze of Solitude" are fixed in the early October. Since this month is available the American magazine "Livid Looking Glass", including an interview to the band. Who is interested in, can order the magazine directly at info@lividlookingglass.com (Ron).
The printing of "Cold Memories and Remains" is still in progress, we hope the album could be available as soon. After a long time (sorry!) the lyric of "Eternal nights" has been included in the page "Lyrics".
We wish you a nice summer holiday!



Here the latest news. We'll play live soon (look for the place in "Concerts" page) in Talsano (TA) the 1st of May. This one will be probably the last concert before the recording of the new album. Soon more news about the recording! Greetings.


The release of “Cold memories and remains” is in progress, we hope the album could be out soon. In the meantime, we’re pleased to announce the reprint of “Fragments of broken dreams” for the end of the year, always on Fossil Dungeon, together with the publication of the new album we’re working about, whose title should be “Breeze of solitude”.
Until now nine new songs are ready to be recorded (Rising Tide, Doubt, Dimenticati, Velvet Moon, Waves of Loneliness, Homecoming, The Long Years, Eternal Illusion and Drowned). You can read the first review about “Cold memories and remains” in the related page (Reviews) on this website. The review, together with the band interview, is by the magazine “Herz und Geist” (Secondo Semestre 2004, Anno II). Even if so late (sorry…) the Releases page is updated as well: here you can find the cover of the “Circolo della Vela, Vol. II” compilation, we attended to with the song “Eternal Nights” in a live version.


The gig in Rome is delated, because of problems of Mephisto Waltz with the promoters. "Fragments of broken dreams" will be probably reprinted next summer always on Fossil Dungeon, while the third album, we are working about, will be out on December 2005.


Violet Tears will play live on the 31th of October for the HALLOWEEN NIGHT, in Bari at the "Taverna Vecchia del Maltese" and after the show the party will go on and on with a non-stop dance hall by our Dj Violet Tear!!!!! More info in "Concerts"!!!



Here the latest news, after so long time...
We had some problems with our web-site updating, but now, thanks to Carmen, it's all right! The new album "Cold memories and remains" will be out later this year for the American label "The Fossil Dungeon" ( www.fossildungeon.com ) and is going to be printed in a Digipak format. We found Michael very kind and the partnership prestigious, so that it's going to be extended to the next releases too. We'll open the show of Mephisto Walz in Rome, on the 5th of December, at "Circolo degli artisti" (you'll find the club address in the "Concerts" page and write us for more information at violettears@virgilio.it ), but we're looking around for other concerts too, before that time.
One song from "Cold memories...", Eternal night, in a live version appeared on the "Circolodellavela Vol. II" compilation: the recording quality is not great, but the hearing pleasant.
We're working about some of the songs of our 3rd album. At the moment 8 new tracks are almost completed (Rising tide, Doubt, Dimenticati, Caught, Fading like a star, The long years, Velvet moon, Drowned): the new work is going to be a sort of "concept" about the "solitude". We think the results are very nice!!! Bye!!


Finally is online the new official web-site of Violet Tears!! The site has been revised in some of its sections (History, Photo Gallery, Reviews) and enriched with some new voices (Release and Lyrics, Concerts, MP3). The edition of “Fragments of broken dreams” produced by Anaemic Waves Factory ( www.awf.it ) is sold out, so no more available. We remind to all those interested in buying this work that it can be ordered directly from Violet Tears in a promotional version mailing to violettears@virgilio.it or silenttear@virgilio.it. The price of one cd is 8€ + 2€ for forwarding charges. The band has finished to record 9 new songs, which will appear on the forthcoming full length album “Cold memories and remains” (total running time, 57 minutes): its getting out is nearby! The 9 new tracks are called: In the throat of the unbounded, Silence, Polvere, Don’t wake me up, The submerged and the saved, Eternal nights, Floating into nothing, Angel in the mirror, My secret words.
From long time Maria Teresa and Carmela have abandoned our project, and just for a short time, a new bass player, Tiziana Tosto, has worked with us. So now we’re four. A song of the new album, Eternal nights, in a live version, will probably appear soon in a compilation. We’ll play the 30th of April in Bari at “Les Fleurs du Mal”, for the presentation of the new album.
Soon more news, all the best!
