Home » Artists » Stiff Valentine
Vancouver-based machine rock outfit Stiff Valentine formed in 2003 around the talents of industrial music producer "Loud" Chris DeMarcus and guest members from a plethora of industrial rock bands; Front Line Assembly, 16volt, Sounds of Mass Production, Chemlab, Dismantled, Landscape Body Machine, and Left Spine Down, to name a few. The underground supergroup's volatile but groove-heavy debut, Industrial Metal Disco, was released in 2009, followed by their latest release America Bleeding in 2011, produced by Chris Peterson (Front Line assembly, Delerium, Unit 187).
SV tackles dance floors and mosh pits alike with heavy riffs, thumping beats, throat-tearing vocals and its not-so-secret weapon: a sense of humor. Don't be surprised if you see 'em screaming through loudspeakers outside of a closed-down night club in Albuquerque, New Mexico, or banging out thrash riffs in a snow castle near Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. Known for their explosive live shows, they live up to their title of The Second Best Canadian Band, Ever!
