The Villains Set New Album Release

The Villains will release their sophomore album, Velocity, on Valentine's Day (February 14, 2012), to be followed by a tour.

Produced by Stan Lynch (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Don Henley) and Billy Chapin (Backstreet Boys, Edwin McCain) and mixed by industry veteran John Kurzweg (Jewel, Creed), the 12 new songs on Velocity represent the experiences and emotions that accompanied the recent period of growth for the band.

In the spirit of acts such as The Band, The Eagles, and Fleetwood Mac, The Villains utilize different singers and styles for a cohesive, but aurally interesting mix. Songwriters such as Tom Douglas (Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw), Stan Lynch (Don Henley, The Eagles) and Richard Feldman (Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker) were enlisted. From the blistering opening track "Cadillac" to the optimistic "I've Got A Feeling," VELOCITY is a relatable slice of life set to music created by five industry vets.

All five Villains, Magno, Dan Call, Sean McNally, Michael Wilkes, and Jimmy James Schmitt, have a rich history of writing, recording, and touring. Each has recorded and performed with many mainstream and indie artists from Nashville to New York, as well as touring the world together and individually. As the backing band for Keni Thomas, they supported Keith Urban, Trace Atkins, Montgomery Gentry and performed USO shows, and at the Pentagon.

The Villain's 2010 debut record, Just Another Saturday Night, yielded two Triple A charting singles, "Let's Forget About It Tonight" and "You Don't Have To Say", both co-written by Peter Stroud (guitarist for Sheryl Crow and Don Henley). The record was a critical success and the band supported Blues Traveler and Sister Hazel through the end of the year.
