Valencia return to the road, kicking off the new year with a four-week trek to promote their Columbia Records debut, We All Need A Reason To Believe.
As fans have come to expect from the Philadelphia five-piece, thereâ€™s more to the â€œSay No To Neonâ€ tour than a clever title. â€œThink about what you support, what you listen to, what you spend your money on, etcetera. Take your time and think about the things you spend your time on,â€ says guitarist Brendan Walter. â€œLife is short, so spend your time on the things that count and what matters, not all the fluff and ‘neon’ that is out there.â€
We All Need A Reason To Believe, produced by Ariel Rechtshaid [Plain White Tâ€™s, We Are Scientists, Say Anything] is out now, with early support for their new single â€œWhere Did You Go.â€
On the live front, Valencia continue to turn heads and make new fans – like John Moser of The Morning Call, who hailed their most recent Allentown, PA show as â€œa performance that should make a career.â€
At the conclusion of their â€œSay No To Neonâ€ tour, Valencia will travel to Australia for the Soundwave Festival, where they will perform alongside The Offspring, Jacks Mannequin, Say Anything, Chiodos, and more.
Valenciaâ€™s â€œSay No To Neonâ€ tour dates and the video for â€œWhere Did You Goâ€ are available online at the bands MySpace page, www.myspace.com/valencia
