September 30, 2021—Formidable rock trio The Velveteers share their new single and video “Father of Lies” today; listen/watch HERE. The track, which premiered yesterday with Flood Magazine, is off the band’s debut album, Nightmare Daydream, produced by GRAMMY Award-winning artist Dan Auerbach and due October 8 via Easy Eye Sound; pre-order and stream HERE. The band is on tour now as the sole support for genre-bending rocker Des Rocs; order tickets HERE.

“‘Father of Lies’ is about having a little devil who likes to sit on your shoulder and whisper in your ear. It’s about battling the evil voices in your head,” says lead singer/guitarist Demi Demitro. “The chorus instrumental guitar riff is one of my favorite riffs on the album because I think it really embodies this sort of heaviness that the song carries.” The track follows “Brightest Light,”  “Motel #27,” which Under the Radar called “fresh, nasty, and primal” and the album’s lead single “Charmer And The Snake.”

The Velveteers made up of Demitro and dual drummers Baby Pottersmith and Jonny Fig, opened for Guns N’ Roses last month at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO, underscoring their reputation for uniquely energetic live performances. Westword praised the show in their recent cover story about the band, writing: “Audience members around me were mesmerized as Fig and Pottersmith smashed their drums in sync and Demitro sang with unparalleled intensity” and further calling Nightmare Daydream “heavy, raw, and filled with the spit-and-fire passion that makes the Velveteers stand out among competitors, a reminder that rock, as a genre, is far from dead.”
