Sun Gangs is the third album by The Veils, released on 6 April 2009 in both CD and LP formats. Finn Andrews has described it as "a very modern mixture of prayers, love letters and personal record keeping". Sun Gangs was produced by Graham Sutton, with the exception of the opening track "Sit Down by the Fire", produced by Bernard Butler. No official singles were released to promote the album though 1-track promos of "Three Sisters" and "The Letter" were sent out to radio stations in late February, 2009.
