flo There's a German word 'schmissig' that my friends always tease me about when I use it to describe really, really good songs (I don’t use that term lightly). But even that word doesn’t do justice to 'Strange News From the Vault.' These eleven songs possess an irresistible energy that is here to stay! Favorite track: Bitter Lake.

about

“This album gets better with every listen, as more and more tracks become memorable and stick with you.” (Ox Fanzine)

“In 1994, someone told me that guitar music was dead. I’m thrilled that, even after thirty years, there are still such fantastic new bands.” (Jan Müller, Tocotronic / Reflektor)

“A second band with the power of Velcros will be hard to find this year. Their punk is light-footed, their melodies hit the mark” (VISIONS)

“With a powerful 90s edge and yet anything but a zeitgeist copy, ‘Strange News From the Vault’ serves up hits in large quantities.” (Beatblogger)

“A whirlwind of post-punk and noise-pop ecstasy, where the saying ‘all killer, no filler’ applies throughout.” (Schall Magazin)

“With their musical evolu­tion, VELCROS prove that they are one of the most exciting bands in the alternative rock scene.” (AM:PLIFIED)

“With a magnetic fusion of Tom Petty’s undeniable charisma and the raw, unfiltered energy reminiscent of the punk bands such as The Hives or The Wipers, VELCROS masterfully intertwine elements of infectious melody and unapologetic vigor.”
