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..
