The Velveteers, a trio from Denver, Colorado, have released new single Tale Of The Bad Seed ahead of their September UK tour.

The punk-rock banger is accompanied by a disconcerting trip of a music video inspired by vintage hypnotherapy and optical illusions that was directed, filmed, and edited by the band.


Featuring 21-year-old guitarist and vocalist Demi Demitro and drummers John Demitro and Adrian Pottersmith, The Velveteers describe themselves as “the embodiment of the punk spirit with a sense of aggression and a grunged-up wisdom”. 

Their fuzzed-out guitar riffs and doubled-up drums have seen them compared to The Stooges, T.Rex, and Led Zeppelin

Since releasing their self-titled debut EP in 2018, The Velveteers have toured extensively, supporting the likes of Julian Casablancas and The Voidz, Deap Vally, Chicano Batman, and CFM. This month they bring their live show to the UK, with their tour kicking off in Glasgow on 10th September and wrapping up in Bedford on the 21st.
