So . . . . everyone wants a “little” respect now and then.   Velvet Blue Music has been around for 15 years and 139 releases !    We’ve remained 100% independent, and anyone familiar w/ the label knows we’ve put out releases out of a love for music, there’s been numerous releases we already knew wouldn’t be main stream or profitable.
Here’s where I’m going with this :  our newest band Seryn ( ) was hand selected by Paste Magazine to be part of a contest along w/ 4 other bands to play the Rombello Mini Festival (which takes place on a boat . . . but never mind that)
The point is Seryn represents the label, they do deserve to win + them winning is our way of getting a “little” respect  !
If you could take like 1 minute and cast a vote for Seryn it would be GREATLY appreciated.
You are supposed to watch videos from the 5 bands, then rate them . . .  we don’t care if you only watch 4 seconds of the other bands and give them a medium rating, we only care that you rate Seryn the highest.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists.

Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
