The up and coming prog-tastic metal band, Valence, is a group we’ve talked about before, and for good reason. Their fun mix of twisted passages and infectious groovy melodies keep us interested in coming back for more!
Check out their music video on the track “Damnit, Lana!”, directed by Derek Soto of Sinestra Studios, off their upcoming album, Cognitive Dissidents, to see what we mean!
Guitarist Geoffrey Schaefer says, “Damnit, Lana!” was the clear choice as the lead single for the album because it hits you like a ton of bricks right from the start. And while it’s one of our shreddiest songs, it’s also stylistically pretty eclectic.”
Pre-order the upcoming album, Cognitive Dissidents, available everywhere on April 12.
