We are very pleased to say that the third full-length from Austria’s Valina is now available in stores across the United States, as well as right here on the Joyful Noise site.
Throughout the Austria-based trio’s 11 year history the band has developed a name for themselves with stellar releases and relentless touring throughout the globe. Recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago with the world-class Steve Albini, A Tempo! A Tempo! is a career-defining moment for the band; a sturdy, brisk, edgy album that is at once honest, nostalgic, and brave. Jaw-dropping musicianship informs a uniquely rhythmic, harmonious, and ultimately unclassifiable blend of riff-heavy rock. You can sample a song here: Phantom Of My Longest Day (mp3)
