Rock and Roll; an oft used term in music, yet seldom correctly. There is so much more than just playing songs really loudly. Arrogant swagger, infectious groove, unbridled sexuality, heart racing rhythm, undeniable passion, swing, sway, and soul are what separate Rock and Roll from the rest of its musical counterparts. ASPHALT VALENTINE is without a doubt a rock and roll band. In 2003, five Atlanta based musicians got together to combine all those aspects of the ’spirit’ of Rock and Roll. “How’s about you and me, mix a little gasoline, just to see how long, we can make it burn”. That being said, the band set out to write and perform songs with that tone in mind. Influenced by every musical note they have ever heard, ASPHALT VALENTINE fused them all together. The attitude of punk, the glam of decadence, the melody of pop, the blare of hard rock, the naiveté of youth, the worn weariness of country, and the soul of the rhythm and the blues but with one common one goal in mind; To play straight ahead balls to the wall, white knuckled Rock and Roll.
ASPHALT VALENTINE understands there is no secret formula for success other than determination, hard work and a little bit of luck. There is no reason to try and reinvent the proverbial Rock and Roll wheel. The only thing needed is to keep the wheel rolling. What truly matters at the end of the day is that you are true to yourselves and ASPHALT VALENTINE are five guys who firmly believe that is what they do with the music that they create. After a few lineup changes over the years, and thousands of miles logged, hundreds of shows and many satisfied fans, ASPHALT VALENTINE finally found the perfect combination of seasoned veteran musicians to fulfill their quest to rock n’ roll. This is the year that the world gets to Strip Rock Roll! ASPHALT VALENTINE is poised to take it to the next level with their upcoming yet to be titled release. Buckle up and hold on because it is going to be a hell of a ride.
