The Veterans first album was released in 2008. It was a success... for a band that never played a single show!
The Veterans are our studio project. We are Andrea, lead singer of the punk rock band The Manges, and guitarist and sound engineer Alex Bounty.
We are recording four new songs and they will be released in spring 2013 as two 7" singles. The sound will be just what you expect from us: American style alt rock with a surfing and 60s touch.
Demos are ready and we like them a lot! It's time to record the final tracks. Toro will be our drummer again and Ally from Teenage Bubblegums will play bass; we'll have Stefanino from Tough on board too, and very special guest Perry Leenhouts from Travoltas and I Am Next.
Dario Dr.Pepper Maggiore took care of the design of the merchandise, and awesome photographer Kyle Lightner allowed us to use two of his photos for the singles covers.
The new idea is... recording music is fun, but running the band's business the same way is just... boring. That's why we decided to start this musicraiser.com campaign and do it toghether with our friends.
We set up a good bunch of rewards that will allow you to be a part of this effort while getting very good deals on our upcoming singles and merchandise. Pre-orders are open!
Small labels, shops and distributors will be able to book their copies and step up as co-producers too.
So stay tuned!
We accept you, one of us!
