Valve is a five headed hydra from Paris, France. Fast but slow, High but low, dark but bright, their blend resonates with a certain feeling of organised chaos. Swimming in a sea of tension, feeding on cognitive dissonance, Valve take an alternative path that favours transformation, strengthening their identity while exploring new depths and digesting new inspirations.

In 2022, Valve return with a new full-length that stretches even further along the extremes of heavy music, swinging from epileptic rushes to cathartic psychedelia. With »Thermoclines«, the band tightens their grip on the gloomiest soundscapes, barely hanging onto the last glimmer of sanity.

»Thermoclines«n is out on November 12th on:
• Coloured vinyl LP via Itawak Records (France) and Moment Of Collapse Records (Germany)
• Cassette tape via Poutrage Records and Yoyodyne Records
• Digipak CD
• All streaming platforms
