’90s shoegazers The Veldt are back in full-force
Legendary shoegazers The Veldt recently announced their return to life with a new EP called The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation, available worldwide on April 8. The band also released a string of Spring tour dates, including a stop-off in Toronto at The Silver Dollar Room on April 3 with Mimico, Noah Bird and Enoch Ncube. They will be following the EP up later this year with a full-length titled Resurrection Hymns via SonicBLAST! Records.
After their 1989 debut, The Veldt began a controversial career as black musicians playing white music. They were criticized for being “difficult” and not having a sound that’s more similar to bands like Living Colour, but they won the hearts and ears of indie and alt rock lovers world wide. Though never quite breaking through to the mainstream, The Veldt made their mark on the music industry and helped open doors for marginalized voices everywhere.
