What began being a side task called “the trick Band” — an apt name, considering singer/guitarist Judah Nagler and drummer Logan Whitehurst were in fact concealing the music off their bandmates — shortly blossomed into something these music artists wanted to tell higher public. After piecing together a full-length demonstration on the four-track, they left out their band Small Tin Frog and documented an EP, Comasynthesis, as the Velvet Teenager. Bassist/vocalist Josh Staples became a member of and the artwork pop trio self-released an EP, THE FANTASTIC Beast Feb, in early 2001. In 2002, the group kicked off San Francisco’s vaunted Sound Pop Event and toured the united states to get their full-length debut, From the Fierce Parade. Their eclectic, piano-based follow-up Elysium found its way to 2004, though tragedy struck that same 12 months when Whitehurst was identified as having brain cancer. He’d eventually drop his struggle with cancer, loss of life in 2006. Dealing with fresh drummer Casey Deitz, The Velvet Teenagers changed tack once more favoring a far more EDM-influenced audio on the 2006 EP GyzmKid and full-length discharge Cum Laude!. Functioning briefly being a quartet by adding guitarist Matthew Izen (Polar Bears, THE BRAND NEW Trust), they documented the No Superstar EP because of their 2010 tour of Japan. Slimming back off for an Izen-less trio, they started recording their 4th record in 2012 with co-producers Steve Choi (RX Bandits, Peace’d Out) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peace’d Out). After putting your signature on with Topshelf Information, they released All Can be Illusory in 2015.
