LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts/ ABC PR) THE VILLAINS - Sean McNally (drums and vocals), Dan Call (bass and vocals), Magno (guitars, keys, and vocals), Michael Wilkes (guitars), Jimmy James "JJS" Schmitt (guitars and vocals) - is gearing up for the release of "Cadillac," the second single from their sophomore album, VELOCITY, which is out now via Toucan Cove Entertainment/Universal Republic. The song will be serviced to AAA stations nationwide on June 11.

"Cadillac" is the follow-up to the first single, "Rainy Day Girl," which appeared on the BDS Triple A Indicator Most Added chart and was spinned on such stations as WJCU (Cleveland), WOCM (Ocean City), KSPN (Los Angeles), WCBE (Columbus), KBAC (Las Vegas), WFIV (Knoxville), KRVM (Denver) and many others. A video for the song can be seen on the band's official YouTube page here:

Produced by Stan Lynch (former Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers drummer, who also co-produced Don Henley's INSIDE JOB) and Billy Chapin (who has played guitar for Backstreet Boys and producer for Edwin McCain) and mixed by industry veteran John Kurzweg (Jewel, Creed), the twelve songs on VELOCITY represent the experiences and emotions that accompanied the recent period of growth for the band. In the spirit of acts such as The Band, The Eagles, and Fleetwood Mac, THE VILLAINS utilize different singers and styles for a cohesive, but aurally interesting mix. Songwriters such as Tom Douglas (Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw), and Richard Feldman (Eric Clapton, Joe Cocker), as well as Lynch, were enlisted. From the blistering "Cadillac" to the optimistic "I've Got A Feeling," VELOCITY is a relatable slice of life set to music created by five industry vets.

As raved: "The Villains' VELOCITY is a perfect blend of rock flavored country that can turn anyone into a fan with catchy rhythms, lyrics to sing along to, and a great soundtrack for summer highway driving to cottage country."
