The Velveteins are a rock n' roll band consisting of members Spencer Morphy (vocals/guitar), Addison Hiller (percussion) and Dean Kheroufi (bass) originally from Edmonton, Canada. Their style of heavy guitar pop has translated into raucous and energetic live shows across Canada, America, and the UK opening for larger acts such as July Talk, Elephant Stone, USS and Milo Greene. Signed to Fierce Panda Canada the group is set to release new music produced by Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Sleepy Sun, Black Mountain) in . Formed by front man Spencer Morphy The Velveteins were officially realised in the summer of 2014 after his return from time spent vagabonding around Australia. The band's self recorded debut soon caught the ear of Cage The Elephant's Lincoln Parish who produced the follow up EP "A Hot Second with The Velveteins" in Nashville. After returning the band inked a deal with the Canadian expansion of UK record label Fierce Panda and released "A Hot Second" to the world in May of 2016. Following the release was a 30-date tour across three countries which included stops at The Great Escape in Brighton, London, Toronto, and Los Angeles.
