The Veldt is a legendary shoegaze rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. They were a staple and irreplaceable component of the shoegaze community as the band was discovered by Robin Guthrie of The Cocteau Twins. The Veldt experienced realized success by touring all over the world after signing a record deal with Polygram Records, following the release of their first album Marigold in 1992. The Veldt’s core members (and twin brothers) Danny and Daniel Chavis continue to play music together as the the NYC based 5 piece band, Apollo Heights, who continues to tour interchangeably as the Veldt to this day.
We’ve caught wind that The Veldt will be releasing their first album since 1998 entitled, Resurrection Hymns. We’re anticipating the release from this enigmatic and historically relevant band.
