Raleigh, NC-based metalcore act VALLEYS have been preparing for the release of their new album, Fearless, which drops tomorrow via Tragic Hero Records! Although the masses might have to wait until the 11th to hear the wonderful new tunes, you, mighty Gear Gods reader, are in luck, because we’ve got an exclusive first-listen stream of the entire new album a whole day early! Straight from the Tragic Hero Records YouTube channel, the video above will take you to their playlist of all 12 songs off of Fearless, and if you’ve seen our premiere of the band’s guitar playthrough of their single “Opiate” (see below), you know you’re gonna be in for a wild, wild treat.
While the album is heavy as all get-out, it’s full of twists and turns that set it apart from similar bands in the genre. For fans of groups like Between the Buried and Me, Veil of Maya, and Novelists, VALLEYS keep you as the listener on your toes and combine catchy melodies with punishing heavy moments to craft a sound all their own.
