The Veldt / Press

“The Veldt was a (predominantly) Black rock band whose sound lent itself to a three way tug of war between Prince, Echo and the Bunnymen and Jimi Hendrix. The band amassed a strong following in the south, released an EP entitled Marigolds and was signed to Mercury Records where they released their debut disc Afrodisiac. As quickly as the band was signed, their luck seemed to sour. The group put out a few more discs before disbanding. Now in 2011, the original lineup is back and they are ready to throw their hats into the indie rock ring once again. ”
