Music put away in closets, basements and cellars for thirty years. Not given much of a second thought during that time as life rolls on and a band moves on in life, doing a second album under another name and even a third album under their original name. An entire album – or so – of top shelf material basically “forgotten” over time.
It’s funny where life takes people.
NYC cult AOR heroes VALENTINE are just about to push ‘Demos from the Attic’ on the public and it’s a collection that the band’s rabid fanbase have been waiting for. The world has gotten a taste of what’s to come via the first single, the mid tempo, poignant ballad “Sandy” which has gotten an overwhelmingly positive response across the AOR landscape.
The band has put together a lyric video to accompany the single and it can be seen here:
