Artist Biography Alexander Veljanov (formerly of Run Run Vanguard) is mainly known as one of the founding members of the German darkwave ensemble Deine Lakaien. A few years ago Veljanov presented his solo debut with the album "Secrets of the Silver Tongue", followed in 2002 by "The Sweet Life". Both albums presented a departure from the established Deine Lakaien sound, towards a more personal vision, both musically as well as lyrically. His newest album "Porta Macedonia" was released on Nov. 7, 2008. During four years he worked together with Macedonian musician Goran Trajkoski, resulting in songs mixing typical Veljanov sound elements with Balkan music.
