First New Album in Almost a Decade!
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Since its inception in late 1999, The Velvet Teen has challenged the very concept of genre with its eclectic and at times schizophrenic appeal. From their early EPs which showed prowess in the pop realm, to the dynamic indie jangle of Out of the Fierce Parade, to the romantic strings and quietly political lyrics of Elysium, to the sexually charged whip-it beats of Cum Laude, The Velvet Teen truly has a talent for seducing the masses into a cult-like state, before promptly leaving the faithless with nothing but a kool-aid aftertaste.
Co-produced by Steve Choi (Rx Bandits, Peace'd Out) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peace'd Out), All Is Illusory serves as The Velvet Teen’s fourth full-length album and the long-awaited and elegant follow-up to 2006’s Cum Laude. From its gorgeous, swirling electronics to its harder, angular, ‘90s-leaning flourishes of grunge, indie and emo, All Is Illusory is a welcome return for a band whose varied influences are still very much intact after its long silence. Double LP packaged inside of a gatefold LP jacket with a metallic silver undercoat.
