Festival date cancelled + announced


Unfortunately the Greenville Festival in Paaren, Germany has been cancelled. The Veils were due to play there on July 26th, along with Snoop Dogg, Babyshambles, Maximo Park, the Hives and others. The reason of the cancellation is most likey because not enough tickets were sold. Bought tickets can be returned.

Also, a new festivaldate has been announced. The Veils will be playing at the Reality Bites festival in Massarella, Italy on July 27th. This will most likely be the last live date before the Veils start writing a new album.

New studio + songwriting

StudioFinn

Finn shared this interesting photo and text on his Instagram today..

Finn Andrews:
Ever since the cops stopped us rehearsing in my mum’s tiny garage in Devonport when I was 14 (jerks) I have dreamed of having my own room to make noise in. Last night we finished soundproofing a little studio in London to call our own. Best of all I can finally play the piano without it falling through the floor. The plan is to get another Veils record written in here before the end of the year. Yes, yes, yes.

So, it looks like work on album no 5 will start pretty soon..
Some new album contenders (‘Weakness’, ‘Bit On the Side’) have already been performed live and can be heard on our forum.

We’re back..!

65666_10151604971382140_1655183447_n

Hello everyone!
Yep, we’re back! As some of you might remember, Theveils.net took a long break in mid 2011, as The Veils started preparing their 4th record ‘Time Stays, We Go’, which was released in april 2013. With not much news to talk about and not many active users on the messageboard, we decided to go offline for a while to see what to do with the site in the future. With Twitter, Facebook, Soundcloud, Instagram, Tumblr etc around, would anyone still be interested in a ‘regular’ fansite? Well, the truth is we have no clue. The only way to find out, is go give it another try.

Theveils.net will be about what it has always been about: to discuss music, and of course mainly our favorite band, The Veils. To share your thoughts on the records, the concerts, the people and other things. And perhaps share pictures, interviews, reviews, setlists, rarities, live stuff, sessions etc. What’s new are the Facebook and Twitter plugins, so you’ll be able to log on to theveils.net with your facebook account and you can share posts on Facebook and Twitter.

Now let’s see where this relaunch will take us..
We’re looking forward to see all your contributions!

Have a look around! More content will be added as we go..
