AMAZING BREAKDOWNS is the title of the last record by THE VALIUM
A proper breakdown or just that positively-driven folly caught in neurotic sublimation, eventually converting negative energies into driving creative force is actually the theme of this last record.
By no coincidence born in a period of turbulence and change, this blasting, wicked work whose realization took two years, was recorded by Fabio Calluori at Sonic Temple Studios (Sa) and mixed 3 more times ( London, Bologna, Cava de’ Tirreni) eventually coming to light in the motherland at STUDIO XXXV, as just usually offbeat, therefore mirroring the present spirit of the band
Engineered by the likes of Johnny Paglioli and mastered in Berlin by Stephen Noltmayer , the album frames the band’s ever-growing garage wilderness weaving together with rock’n’roll psychedelia. Such a hypnotizing, vigorous and musically alluring result which drew XXXV’s enthusiasm to the point of releasing it within a very short time.
The first extract from the record is I HATE YOU whose videoclip was signed by film director DANIELE ESPOSITO and traces the storyline of a contemporary, longtime-disillusioned and flipped out Cinderella who is foolishly resentful of her ex husband.
The band is at this time planning an international tour which will start from UK as the home TO their sound.
