ASPHALT VALENTINE announce new album “Twisted Road”

Based in Atlanta, GA ASPHALT VALENTINE got its start in the early 2000’s, signing with Chavis Records now HighVolMusic and released their debut ‘Strip Rock Roll’ in 2008. The band toured the U.S. with Mama Kin from Sweden on the ‘Summer of Sin Tour’. The album received high praise as one of rock’s new bands to watch. In 2013 the band self-released their ‘Into the Red’ E.P. as well as a video for the track ‘Living Dreams’. 

In 2015 the band began working on new material for what is now ‘Twisted Road’ and released a video for the track ‘The Only’ before going on hiatus. ‘The Only’ was originally conceived when the band was approached by author/film maker/adventurist Joey Shonka to write some music for one of his documentary-style films about his years long journey across the entire Andes Mountains range in South America – a journey he did alone. The video contains footage of the recording sessions as well as clips from Shonka’s latest self-shot movie ‘The Shonkadventure’. 

While filling in on vocals for another band, Joe Flynt began to get the ‘itch’ to get ASPHALT VALENTINE back in motion. Upon returning from the road, Joe reached out to the rest of the band to get things started. 
With renewed excitement and energy, the band returned to work on the recordings and resigned with HighVolMusic in 2019 before putting the final touches on the album. ‘Twisted Road’ was recorded at Dirty Little Secret Studios in Atlanta, GA and is self-produced with mixing by Andy Reilly (Asia, Praying Mantis, UFO) at Muse Productions. 

Watch out for their mix of heavy melodic rock’n’roll with a punk attitude, combined with glam elements, youthful freshness, country-coolness and the soul of R’n’B that is „Twisted Road“.
