FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The Velveteen Band Performs and Debut’s New Music Video
The Velveteen Band are finalizing the recording of their 2nd album, “What’s on the Other Side?”, and in addition to performing, will be debuting a music video for their first single, “Holiday”, on June 24th at the Discovery in Ventura, CA. The show will be ALL AGES, and start at 9pm. Los Angeles fantasy rockers, Alice Underground, and visual artist Stefani Lee, of Lee’s Menegerie, will be in support. The Music video was directed by Red Sky Productions and filmed on location at Heritage Square in Oxnard.
“We’re living in a world of madness, and it needs a Velveteen Band more then ever. We’ve spent the last year rocking conventions and festivals all over the west coast; we just wanted to write songs that made those parties go wild! There’s an insane amount energy on this record that I think is going to really surprise people. As a band, we truly believe we can do whatever we want. We don’t feel limited by any style or expectation, and that’s exactly what we did on this record. We kind of lost our minds.” – Cap’n Dan, Manager/ Producer
The band plans to release the album worldwide, digitally and physically in September and will have a CD release party at the Discovery in Ventura, to launch the album. The release date will be announced this summer!
We’ll be playing the main stage at 5:30pm, right after 50 Sticks of Dynamite!
Also, don’t miss Cirque Des Betes on the side stage! They’re amazing. (Noon and 2pm for them)
Here’s the official entertainment schedule for Sunday.
We’re on the main stage again at 2:30, after Opal Aura.
Don’t miss Abby and the Myth there, either. Abby’s an old friend of ours. Make her feel welcome! They’re on at noon.
And here’s a list of the vendors who’re gonna be there.
(The names aren’t terribly descriptive, and descriptions won’t do them justice; you really need to walk through each booth and see their work. My point in sharing this is simply that there’s a lot to see.)
That’s all we’ve got for right now. See you tomorrow!
