We are gearing up to release our brand new studio album “Young Hunger” through Demon Doll Records; a smashing follow-up to our critically acclaimed debut from 2012. Following the underground success of our previous effort, we’ve once again teamed up with producer Bård Torstensen and legendary Beau Hill (Ratt, Warrant, Europe) to make this record. Beau Hill himself contacted us after hearing “Night After Night” on a local radio station in Texas, and offered to do the mixing of our sophomore release.
We are now accepting pre-orders at www.valerie.no/store
please note: All pre-orders will be shipped on May 30 2015 and will be signed by all band members.

Norwegian melodic rockers Valerie are set to release their brand new studio album “Young Hunger” through Demon Doll Records; a smashing follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut from 2012. Legendary producer Beau Hill (Ratt, Warrant, Europe) contacted the band after hearing them on a local radio station in Texas, and offered to do the mixing on their sophomore release.
The record is more AOR oriented than their previous effort, with bigger harmony vocals, catchy guitars, background synthesizers and great hooks.. The album will have a early-mid May release, and will be distributed by Demon Doll Records, as well as independently by the band.
Our new EP “Dangerous” can now be ordered right here through our web-shop. The CD is limited to 500 copies, and includes the single Night After Night, as well as two brand new unreleased tracks Hearts on the Line and the title track Dangerous.
“Dangerous” is also available through iTunes, CDBaby, Spotify among others.
Check out our new single NIGHT AFTER NIGHT! MORE INFO TBA

“The album’s an arresting set of tracks that’ll stalk you from day one. Anthemic standouts “Heat Of The Night”, “When Two Hearts Collide”, “Taste The Bullet” and “Tear Down The Walls” keep the air punching’ foot tappin’ tempo alive and kickin’.”
Great review from Mark Redmayne at http://www.sleazeroxx.com/bands/valerie/valerie.shtml
Cast your eyes down the list of song titles on Valerie‘s self-titled debut album, check out the cover, stick the first track on, and if you’ve been listening to music long enough you might just dismiss them as yet another 80’s retro outfit plundering the treasures of the past only to serve up a chest full of ghosts. That’s OK by this band though — who tell us that their sound is ‘1987 in 2012′ and it’s hard to argue with them.
The album’s an arresting set of tracks that’ll stalk you from day one. Anthemic standouts “Heat Of The Night”, “When Two Hearts Collide”, “Taste The Bullet” and “Tear Down The Walls” keep the air punching’ foot tappin’ tempo alive and kickin’. Producer Bard Torstensen has made this band sound formidable while guitarists BT Valerie andMagnus Christiansen provide an imposing display of riffery and finely crafted solos that consistently excite but never indulge. The rhythm section of bassist Augustus Clark and skins man Erlend Omdal underpin the outfit and it’s clear that the band understands that it’s the song that carries the music.
At only eight tracks Valerie do well to favor quality over quantity, and a special mention must go to the evocative closing ballad “Love Is Not Enough” which would sit well on any Scorpions or Great White album and yet has that something special that gives these Norwegians a trademark sound. If you loved it then… you’ll love Valerie now.

1. Here’s a review from Glam Junkie’s Sleaze Ball (Australia): https://www.facebook.com/notes/glam_junkies-sleaze-ball/valerie-st-cd-review-2012/477602228916811
“…Fast forward a year and the arrival of Valerie’s debut self-titled album has delivered a melodic hard rock gem that should make fans of the genre sit up and take notice. Fronted by an ever charismatic BT Valerie, the band have pieced together a sensational album…”
“…Valerie aren’t looking to re-write the rule books of rock’n’roll, but they are serving up a wild dose of young love, summertime, …. and delivering it superbly. If this is only the beginning, one can only wonder what these guys will be serving up in the coming years!…”
