words by Aaron Levitz and Dan Flores
music by the Velveteen
I’m going for a stroll and I’m never coming back.
I got no suitcases or bags, ‘cause there’s nothing left to pack.
I might leave in a car, or a boat, or a choo-choo-train.
I wanna find a place to escape from inside-a my brain.
This god forsaken world’s gone a-rolling off the track.
That’s why I’m going for a stroll, and I’m never coming back.
In the west is a robot…
lyrics by Aaron Levitz
music by The Velveteen
Sunrise across the prairie,
the robot rides into town.
Justice is arbitrary.
Some villain’s going down.
lyrics by Michael Davis
music by The Velveteen
whisper at a mumble pitch
whisper, hear her, burn the witch
whisper, whisper, mumble more
whisper, whisper, hear me roar!

Fum sat in on an Angie’s Purse rehearsal, and Dita McEvil can’t wait to ask him about it!
You can’t really tell, but we were playing Angie’s Curse in the background while we recorded this. (editing pro-tip: it’s better to add that in post production) Angie’s Purse, being a tribute band, obviously wouldn’t exist without them. Please check them out at http://angiescurse.wordpress.com/
Seth’s Games and Anime in Ventura, CA, was kind enough to allow The Velveteen and Cirque Noir to conduct one of the highest caliber promotional trainings in the history of training, in their store. Humanity will be forever grateful to Seth and his crew for allowing us to document it.
Fum had a chance to preview the new Angie’s Curse album, and is looking forward to the Angie’s Purse tribute (on July 4th at Bombay’s in Ventura) now more than ever.
(you might have guessed that based on his “unique” dance)
Our drummer, Christopher Coyle, pounding away at a DREAM THEATER song. Check it out!
Of historic note for both Chris and The Velveteen, this was also a first test of the new Audix DP7 drum mics, which we have to say are pretty amazing.

May 11, 2014 It is 1am, and the Pop Stuff Expo After Party that started the day prior is still going strong. After two excellent bands and a burlesque act, the crowd is asked to stick around for a DJ set. Those who did got something else entirely…
