Hunter Valentine - tickets sold at 6 doors at 8
Bio: Like all great love stories, Hunter Valentine’s began in a dark, crowded bar when girl met girl and an unbreakable bond was forged over cheap beer and rail whiskey. Armed with a fake ID and a king’s ransom in talent, Kiyomi McCloskey was looking for a drummer and found her rhythmic soul mate in Laura Petracca. It was the first two sides of a Rubik’s Cube. Eight years, two record labels, and three studio albums later, the band has solidified their line-up, put down roots in Brooklyn, and grown their fan base steadily across North America and the globe. Touring 200+ dates a year, Hunter Valentine executes their raucous brand of rock on stages in Canada, America, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the UK – with no plans to slow the pace.
This spring famed Canadian producer and Treble Charger front-man Greig Nori was added to the mix on the soon-to-be-released third effort, Collide and Conquer. Noted for his hit-making influences on bands Sum 41 and Hedley, Nori proved to be the guru Hunter Valentine needed to sharpen their skills and change up the game.Collide and Conquer is also the first album to feature new addition Veronica Sanchez on bass and Somer Bingham as guest keyboardist. The collaboration has added layers and pushed boundaries, while keeping with the unmistakable sound crafted on 2007’s Impatient Romantic (True North Records) and 2010’s Lessons from the Late Night (Tommy Boy).
Next stop for Hunter Valentine is reality TV series The Real L Word, premiering on Showtime July 12th. Documenting the lives and loves of a diverse cast of characters from LA to New York, the show will give fans a peek into the challenges, joys and – of course – the dramas of a being a Valentine.
Collide and Conquer is due out in September 2012.
