The Veils (formed in 2002) are a New Zealand band based in London, fronted by Finn Andrews. Their sound has been compared toartists as diverse as Jeff Buckley, The Birthday Party, The Smiths, and Joy Division. Their live shows have become famed for theiremotional intensity and Finn’s often scarily possessed stage presence.

They released their debut album, The Runaway Found, in Spain late in 2003. The first single from the album, Lavinia, was releasedthrough Rough Trade on November 24, 2003. They released the album globally in January 2004 with a different track listing. Itwent gold worldwide the following year.

The original lineup of The Veils (which included Oli Drake, Ben Woollacott and Adam Kinsella) disbanded in late 2004, and Andrewsreturned to New Zealand in order to find a new lineup. He spent the New Zealand summer rehearsing with high school classmatesLiam Gerrard (keyboards) and Sophia Burn (bass), and the trio returned to London early 2005. There they got connected to DanRaishbrook (Guitar) and Henning Dietz (drums). However Liam Gerrard left the band half way into their American tour in 2007.

The group recorded their second album Nux Vomica at Underbelly Studios in Los Angeles, with producer Nick Launay, and thealbum was released September 18, 2006. The album features string arrangements by ex-Lounge Lizard and long time Lou Reedcollaborator Jane Scarpontoni. Nux Vomica featured on 9 critics’ Best Of The Year lists in 2006.
