Formed by front man Spencer Morphy, The Velveteins were officially realized in the summer of 2014, after his return from time vagabonding around Australia. The band recorded and self released an EP and soon caught the ear of ex-member of Cage The Elephant, Lincoln Parish. They flew down to Nashville and cut “A Hot Second with The Velveteins” and inked a deal with the Canadian expansion of UK Label Fierce Panda in early 2016. The band followed the release with a 30-date tour across three countries which included stops at The Great Escape, London, Toronto, and Los Angeles. The video for single “Hanging From The Ceiling” was also featured on heavy rotation on Much Music. Set to release their debut LP in early 2017, The Velveteins have already proven to be gaining momentum with their vibrant captivating records and thrilling live performances.
