Bringing their explosive live show to an abrupt end, THE VALENTINOS will play their last shows (under their current name!) at The Annandale in Sydney on Friday 18 May, and Click Click at Brown Alley in Melbourne on Saturday 19 May.
Soul artist from the 1950s, Bobby Womack & The Valentinos, are the reason for the band’s impending name change. “Whoop whoop, it’s the sound of the police”, or should we say the lawyers? The time has come for The Valentinos to get a new moniker before they land in some hot water.
After standout performances at V Festival and touring the country on last month’s ‘best-thing-outta-Belgium-since-the-waffle’ Radio Soulwax tour, the shows in May will be the first opportunity to hear the band play brand new tracks from their forthcoming debut album.
The Valentinos are set to release the first single from the album this July, which was recorded and produced in Sydney by legendary Berlin-based UK producer Ewan Pearson, who is currently in the studio producing the new M83 album. Pearson will return to Australia later this year to record and produce The Valentinos debut album,
which is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated releases of the next twelve months.
In other news, The Valentinos first two EPs Self Titled and Damn & Damn Again have been re-pressed due to overwhelming demand.
Don’t miss your chance to catch The Valentinos play their last shows (under their current name) next month!
