Expansive yet personal, gritty yet elegant, Saints Of Valory offer up timeless well crafted alternative-pop. The Austin based artists Gavin Jasper, Godfrey James and Stephen Buckle formed in 2010. With a staunch D.I.Y. ethic the band gigged non-stop throughout 2011-2013 before signing to Atlantic Records.
Two EP's and hundreds of shows later including performances at Coachella, Austin City Limits, Summerfest, Rock in Rio and opening for The Rolling Stones, the Saints found themselves taking a break from their heavy touring schedule to begin work on a full length debut album set for release in 2017. The construction of the album was very different from its predecessors. To push their limits musically and create new experiences the band travelled and recorded in various locations including Los Angeles, Orlando, Nashville, New York, Kenya and Austria.
The new album is marked by a slight tonal shift that comes with each experience. From the angst and anarchy in, "Set It On Fire" to the feeling of giving-in to an adventure in,"Too Close To The Sun" to the genuine struggles of life as a musician in, "I Haven't Been Myself Lately."
With this album they cast a wider net, but remained focused on capturing their raw honest emotions which illustrates that in many ways, Saints of Valory are only getting started.
