Welcome to episode # 36 of the Rock Interview series. My guest for this feature is Nils Goldschmidt, bass player and leader of the hard rocking band Velvet Chains.
Velvet Chains is a four-piece band that was formed in 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to Nils, the band also includes: Jerry Quinlan: lead singer and rhythm guitar, Laurent Cassiano: lead guitar and back vocal and Noelle Schertzer: drums.
They released their debut 10-track album entitled “Icarus.” on September 24, 2021. The band’s sound can best be described as a mix of post grunge, alternative and early Guns n’ Roses.
Velvet Chains is one of the most exciting new bands out right now. Their first single is a track called “Tattooed” and features guest guitarist Richard Fortus of Guns n’ Roses. The band also released an epic, must see video for this track (see below).
We talk about this and much more in the following exclusive interview with Nils Goldschmidt!
