Velvet Code

Synthetically dark, cutting edge electro rock band, Velvet Code, announced today that they will preview their debut album, Amadeus Is Dead! (Cordless Recordings/WMG) at an all ages event at Don Hill's (511 Greenwich at Spring St.) on April 5th at 9 pm ET.

Produced by Marlon Wurmitzer (Frontman for Velvet Code), with REEQ founders Mark Saunders (Shiny Toy Guns, The Cure, Depeche Mode) and Ollie Hammett (Shiny Toy Guns), Velvet Code's album will be released worldwide on June 3rd, 2008 through the Cordless Recordings/Warner Music Group worldwide digital music platform.

Don Hill's is a premier venue in New York City, showcasing indie rock/pop and electro talent from across the country.

First surfacing in 2007 on its own independent label, Velvet Code Records, the fun loving, energetic electro rockers bring a playful blend of crisp, bright, plastic pop sounds to dark, distorted lyrics and melodies. During recent live shows at the Knitting Factory and The Delancey, they packed enough energy to even tire a house full of teenagers.

Their television debut on Fearless Music TV (Fox Television, Saturday night at 12:30 am ET) will take place in mid-April. More details to be announced shortly.

With over 5,000 plays a day on MySpace and hundreds of Street Team Leaders worldwide, Velvet Code is quickly making their mark. Velvet Code was ranked #1 on the electronic charts of Reverbnation in February 2008 and has been featured on over 100 podcasts around the world.
