Usually when a band announce their tour dates they send out a presser and it’s Music Feeds job to re-edit it and take all the credit. However, Velociraptor’s Australian Tour presser is so hilarious and self-deprecating we figured we’d just share some inserts with you in their original form.
The ‘Girl, you’re my girl, girl, girl. Girl. Cynthia. Girl.’ Tour – AKA The hit songs with limited lyrical content tour.

Velociraptor like to make party, so much so that they formed a band/gang so large, so loose, and so fun that instant party making was guaranteed* wherever they showed up.
Originally a trio formed by vocalist/primary songwriter Jeremy Neale and his bros Simon Ridley and Shane Parsons of DZ Deathrays infamy, the band quickly grew (in number, if not reputation)… The band has since grown to a revolving cast of 12 Ultimate Party DogsTM and embarked on a number of national tours where a surprising number of people actually showed up.
The pre-destination of Velociraptor’s rise to fame as the world’s greatest stadium rock band was heralded by the oracles at Australia’s Triple J. Inexplicably receiving high rotation for single In the Springtime and again for latest single Cynthia has ensured that Velociraptor’s place in the hearts and minds of the Australian populace is now cemented.
You can catch them on their own upcoming headline shows in March and again in April as main support for DZ Deathrays. Either way, prepare to be blown………..away.
*in no way is this guarantee legally binding, some fun sponges just refuse to make party good. THEIR LOSS!
