Veilside is a hard rock/alternative metal band hailing from the suburbs of Chicago. The band started in 2006 as a four piece, gaining their fifth band member in the fall of 2009. The band has slowly risen in popularity on the strength of their promotion, as well as an energetic, melodic live show. Their self-produced debut CD, "Chapter One" was released in June of 2008 and to date has sold over 3000 copies almost by word of mouth alone. The success has allowed Veilside to open for national acts including Dokken, LA Guns, Nelson, and Stephen Pearcy of Ratt. In 2011, the band has aimed for a much more ambitious endeavor...getting mega-producer Chuck Alkazian (Slipknot, Saving Abel, Pop Evil) from Pearl Sound Studios to help them complete "THIS TIME..." featuring the band's popular hard rock version of the Kansas hit "Dust in the Wind". Veilside also hosts the annual "Breaking the Silence" benefit for autism awareness, and has worked with several other children's charities.
Veilside is:
Tony Engel - Lead Vocals
Jon Badalamenti - Guitars/Backing Vocals
Russ Odean - Guitars/Backing Vocals
Ron Thomas - Drums/Backing Vocals
Bob "Cabo" Hilton - Bass (we don't let him sing)
