Valkyrie Inks Deal With Relapse Records

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Virginia hard rock riff worshipers Valkyrie. The label comments:

"Formed in 2002, Valkyrie consists of brothers Jake and Pete Adams (Baroness, Samhain) on guitar and vocals, Alan Fary (Earthling) on bass and Warren Hawkins on drums. Drawing heavily from the classic eras of hard rock and heavy metal, Valkyrie play guitar driven rock n’ roll replete with infectious solos and catchy, powerful vocals. The band has drawn numerous comparisons to greats like Thin Lizzy, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, early Iron Maiden, and Deep Purple.

"The quartet has released two full-lengths along with a series of EPs and singles. Valkyrie recently recorded their first full-length in over 7 years at Earth Analog Studios in Champaign, IL with producer Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican) earlier this month. The eight song album will see an early 2015 release via Relapse."

Guitarist / vocalist Jake Adams commented on the signing and new material: "We are really excited about this new record. Some of these songs we have been working on for many years and we are glad to see them have a proper release on an excellent label. This new record will be a step up in terms of song dynamics and musicianship from the previous albums and we think our fans will dig the fresh approach to the classic Valkyrie sound."

Songs from the band’s previous albums can be streamed via Bandcamp here.
