Biography

Canada (2004 – present)

Go in, nail ‘em and go home exhausted. Such a simple victory has been the mission of rock bands for decades. It’s a noble pursuit; a Do It Yourself mentality that compels musicians to obliterate with powerful songs propelled by live passion and vitality.

That’s Hunter Valentine.

Blasting out their inimitable rock since the summer of 2004, Hunter Valentine has blossomed, establishing a devoted fan base via their self-financed eponymous 2005 EP and building on that foundation with their 2007 full-length The Impatient Romantic (True North Records). Razing crowds from coast to coast in their decrepit van, nailing select European and U.S. Cities over the course of 200-plus shows, the trio has garnered an international fan base as they build out of their native Canada. Hunter Valentine are now poised to break through with their gripping follow up Lessons From the Late Night (Tommy Boy/Fontana/Universal).

Raucous and direct, the outfit comprised of vocalist/guitarist Kiyomi McCloskey, bassist Adrienne Lloyd and drummer Laura Petracca exemplifies girls with a united goal, intense friendship, respect and ability that solidifies their edgy albeit refined music. There’s no hyperbole when it comes to Hunter Valentine. Everything has a direct message, delivered with a devout refusal for glitz or glamour. The hard line says it all, conveyed by confident, unbridled rock ‘n’ roll.

For McCloskey, Lloyd and Petracca, Hunter Valentine isn’t a job or an ambition.

    I've had to resist the urge to over listen Collide&Conquer but it's so hard when it's such a good album. [2]

    Saw them live last night! I agree, their live energy made even the people in the audience that weren't there for them (100 monkeys was playing, and standing in line I seriously thought I was the only one there for HV and VT...) dance and scream. These same people were just like "meh" for the other bands (exception of VT). But definitely, once you see them live it'll change the way you listen to their recorded music.

    For those of you that haven't seen them live yet - GO! Their live shows have an amazing energy, and there's no way to match that just by listening to their music. Plus they are absolutely sweet and adorable in person. js

    I was so happy when I found their new album at Hot Topic one random day, shortly after their show here in Dallas. Wish I could have gone, but their album is amazing!

    Holy shit. I live in Staten Island. Didn't think anyone outside of New York, nevermind the US would know where that is.
