The Mary Veils

The Mary Veils are finally the band they were always supposed to be. What began as the solo project of frontman Brian Von Uff is now a fully-fledged, incendiary punk four-piece, with drummer Evan Wall, guitarist Drew Mann and bassist Justin Mansor rounding out the new lineup.

Such is the shared musical language between the four that their first jams immediately, and almost wordlessly, bore fruit. The furious, freewheeling singles "Home Video" and "Rowboat" were amongst a glut of songs that came together at breakneck pace, and made up half of the first four-track EP from The Mary Veils as a full band, last November’s Somewhere Over the Rowhome. “I probably did it the wrong way around,” says Von Uff of the jump from solo project to four-piece. “I wish these dudes were around from the beginning."

The band teamed up again with Cory Hanson (Wand, Ty Segall & The Muggers) and Jeff Zeigler (War On Drugs, Kurt Vile) to produce and mix upcoming album "Esoteric Hex", which has seen the band develop from their DIY garage punk start, into a fuller, much heavier psych sound. Esoteric Hex is released worldwide via PNKSLM Recordings on March 25th.
