Campag Velocet have parted company with their record company, PIAS Recordings, nme.com can reveal. In a brief statement released this afternoon to nme.com, the band didn’t explain the reason for the breach, preferring to say that they had “parted company” with PIAS and they were in the studio working on some “newly written righteous punk rock anthems”.
They are still hoping to release an EP of new material in October, though no indication has been given of which label the band will re-emerge as part of. A series of live dates will coincide with the release.
Frontman Pete Voss can be heard lending vocals to limited edition 7″ only single ‘Minnie The Minx’ by Mao. It is released through Candyapple on July 10.
Campag Velocet enjoyed considerable critical acclaim last year when their debut long player ‘Bon Chic Bon Genre’ was released. However sales never matched the level of hype that had been generated.
