Legendary black rock band The Veldt embark on a headlining tour
The Chavis brothers have already traveled almost 30 years as talented musicians, their music ethereal and otherworldly sonic waves mixed with soulful and gospel vocals. In 2015 they opened for The Brian Jonestown Massacre, a tour which opened the door to introducing new fans to the Veldt and connecting them with influential fans such as Peter Holmström of the Dandy Warhols. Holmström produced a remix on the band’s recent release “Check Out Your Mind” and worked with Wu-Tang Clan producer Carlos Bess on their February 2022 release “Electric Revolution”.
To top it all off, The Veldt launched their own label, 5BC Records, where they reissue their 1989 debut album, “Everlasting Gobstopper”, on 12-inch vinyl, as well as their unreleased 1989 album Illuminated, the 1992 “Marigold” LP. and a deluxe edition of 1994’s “Afrodisiac.” Most importantly, The Veldt will embark on their first headlining tour with their first stop at Lincoln Center in New York City, a concert hosted by music critic and groundbreaking musician, the late great Greg Tate.
Although the band have performed throughout Europe and the United States, this current trip, The Entropy Tour, precedes the 2023 release of their forthcoming full-length album of the same title and marks the first ever full-length headlining tour of group poster.
These black rock legends deserve these auspicious premieres and they have worked tirelessly to transform, evolve and stay relevant in a world flooded with sound and new music every day. They have stood the test of time and continue to overcome limitations by being resourceful and incredibly independent.
