We are super excited to be playing the after-show for one of our favorite progressive bands, Dream Theater! They are playing on Saturday October 22nd at The Capitol Theatre, 149 Westchester Avenue, Port Chester, NY, 10573 at 8PM. Directly after their performance, we will be starting our set on the Garcia's stage, which is attached to the Capitol. Join us for a night of great music. \m/
For the month of May, our drummer Chris, is featured in the Connecticut Percussive Arts Society's "CT Spotlight" series. Learn a little about him.
We would like to welcome Wilhelmus Sapanaro to the Valence lineup. Hailing from New Jersey, Will has been in numerous projects and teaches many bass students both on upright bass and electric. We are super excited to have him on board and look forward to putting out more music with him. Stay tuned for some new Valence!
We are super stoked to announce that we made it into Metal Injection's '10 MORE Awesome Underground Bands You Need In Your Life' and they featured "The Depths" off of our debut, Sleepwalker. "Ever watch a band enjoy themselves so much while playing live, that their mood becomes infectious? That's pretty much what happened to me when I saw Valence perform a few weeks ago." - Frank Godla
Hey everyone. Months ago we were awarded the best Metal/Hardcore song for the 14th annual competition for The Independent Music Awards. There was also a voting system for the public and we wanted to say THANKS for voting, because we were also awarded the Vox Populi as well, clearing the category.
Valence is an up and coming instrumental band from New York that exists to push the boundaries of rock. Fusing metal, progressive rock, and jam, Valence creates a unique sound that is intelligent and energetic, yet still accessible. Their focus is on expressiveness: their music can be at times aggressive or intense, at other times contemplative and introspective. Their compositions traverse different styles while their live show has left audiences in awe all across the northeastern US. They've been dubbed "one of the most intelligent and compelling heavy progressive bands out there" (Prog Metal Zone), and are currently nominated for an Independent Music Award for their song "The Reckoning".
