Valentiger Unveiled New Track from New Album

Michigan rock outfit Valentiger premiered a new track “Frozen Dozing” off of their upcoming self-release new album, the upbeat Oh, to Know!. “Frozen Dozing” is the sort of devil-may-care/throwing-caution-to-the-wind tune that would make the Replacements proud.

Set for a March 5 release, the band’s new album follows on from their hugely successful 2010 debut Power Lines to Electric Times which garnered considerable praise. In honor of the new release the band will set out on a national tour, kicked off with an album release show in Grand Rapids, MI, on March 5th. The tour includes a SXSW appearance.

Valentiger leans on the time-tested melodies of bygone days, unearthing and reinventing the sounds of the 60s while drawing heavily from contemporary ideals and experiences. The energy of both old and new provides for albums that are rich in homespun warmth, as well as a live show that moves effortlessly from airy rock and roll, to harmony rich folk-rock, to subdued alt-country. Oh, to Know! sees Valentiger come of age as a group, with a prevailing band-dynamic and a resounding air of effortlessness.
