For over a decade, [velvet] has crafted songs of sonic brilliance interspersed with moments of quiet beauty.

The Washington Post states, “[velvet] deftly balances aggression and accessibility... from dirty-guitar tumult to clean vocal chorales, [velvet] plans its music with great care.”  Generation Gap Magazine described [velvet] as being “eerily reminiscent of the band Hum” but with a style of their own that is quite difficult to pin down.

Formed in 1995, [velvet] has released four stellar independent albums on Signal to Noise Records.

[velvet] is perhaps best known for their awe-inspiring live act, which has garnered the respect of music critics and legions of loyal fans. Over the years, [velvet] has toured the East coast and headlined at such venues as the Black Cat (Washington, D.C.), Fletcher’s (Baltimore, Md.), The Recher Theatre (Towson, Md.) and several television and radio appearances including MHz Networks, the late 99.1 WHFS, 98Rock, DC101 and countless college radio stations throughout the nation. They have opened for such national acts as: Good Charlotte, Eyes Adrift, The Anniversary, Fairweather, and Hot Rod Circuit.

Their newest album, "Well Thought Out and Well Planned" was released on December 21st, 2007. It was produced by Andros Rodriguez (The Donnas, The Rancoteurs, Sum41), mixed at Electric Lady Studios, and mastered by Nathan James at The Vault Mastering Studios in New York. [velvet] considers it to be their greatest achievement to date.
