Swedish rockers VELVET INSANE go wham bam glam and wring the clock back to 1973 in the new music video for “Backstreet Liberace”. With guest appearances from Dregen and Nicke Andersson of The Hellacopters on the track, the Swedish glam rockers are in good company.
The band comments:
“We feel very proud about this song and that it breathes and swaggers like it was made in London 1973, but with the modern sound of today. Smooth pop harmonies pumped up by heavy drums and barbed wire guitars, and with a chorus that hits you right where it hurts. On top of it all, we got Dregen and Nicke Andersson from The Hellacopters to jump in the back seat, giving us a helping hand in our purpose to keep rock ‘n’ roll alive. It can’t get any better than that!”
The track was written by the legendary Sulo Karlsson of the Diamond Dogs who also has produced and wrote the tracks together with the band on the upcoming album ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Glitter Suit’. The eleven-track album manifests Velvet Insane as a rock act to count on for years to come.
‘Rock ’n’ Roll Glitter Suit’ will see a July 16 release via Wild Kingdom.
The new, 11-track offering from VELVET INSANE, ‘Rock ’n’ Roll Glitter Suit’ sounds, breathes and swaggers like it was made in London 1973. Smooth pop harmonies pumped up by heavy drums and barbed wire guitars and singers that wear it well. It brings back memories of a time when Slade, TREX, Bowie & Roxy Music were topping the charts.
From the catchy singalong choruses of the pop gems “Velvet Tongue”, “Riding the Skyways” & “Sound of Sirens” to the frantic boogie energy in barroom stompers “Driving Down the Mountain”, “Backstreet Liberace” & “Spaceage DJ”, it’s the real thing. You also get a glimpse of Ziggy Stardust in the acoustic ballad “Midnight Sunshine Serenade”.
Velvet Insane are a band that plays with their hearts on their sleeves and its satisfaction guaranteed. Dregen and Nicke Andersson from The Hellacopters jump in the backseat on “Backstreet Liberace”, and just like Rolling Stones honored the tradition of Muddy Waters blues, Velvet Insane takes on the job to keep rock ’n’ roll alive.
