Velociraptor Reveal New Single ‘Ramona’, New Tour Dates

Ever-changing Brisbane 10-14 piece Velociraptor have revealed their brand-new single Ramona, giving fans a taste of the band’s forthcoming and as-yet unnamed debut studio album. They’ve also announced a four-date Australian tour, being joined by special guest Donny Benet in Sydney and Melbourne.

Now signed to Dot Dash / Remote Control Records, a lot has changed for the garage-pop band over the last year and a half. After playing in the UK and Europe the band lost three of its original members to the many joys of the United Kingdom, as well as another member who just stopped returning calls, apparently.

The band have now recruited local lads George Browning and Yuri Johnson, taking the current Velociraptor touring pool to 10, and a solid 8 when Shane Parsons and Simon Ridley are on the road as DZ Deathrays. Velociraptor have already released a self-titled EP, as well as a mini-album called The World Warriors which dropped in September 2012.

Take a listen to Ramona below, and check out details for the group’s Australian tour dates below that.
