Kickin Valentina formed in 2013, and the band quickly gained attention in the U.S. and abroad. They were immediately picked up by Atlanta based indie label Highway 9 Records and released their debut self-titled EP in October 2013. In August 2015 Kickin Valentina signed with Danish hard rock/metal label Mighty Music Records/Target Group, and have released two successful full-length albums “Super Atomic” and “Imaginary Creatures,” and an EP “Chaos in Copenhagen” to rave reviews around the world. Their album “Imaginary Creatures” debuted on five different Billboard charts (Heatseeker Albums #16, Heatseekers South Atlantic #5, Independent Albums #30, Hard Rock Album Sales #11, and Rock Album Sales #42), and the song “Crazy” reached #15 on the Danish iTunes rock charts. “Chaos in Copenhagen” debuted at # 27 on Denmark’s top 100 album sales chart.
Kickin Valentina has been busy touring America and Europe opening for artists as diverse as Buckcherry, Queensryche, Nitrogods, Pop Evil, Fozzy, Skid Row, Red Dragon Cartel, Sebastian Bach, Doro, Eve to Adam, Faster Pussycat, Nonpoint, Kix, and LA Guns to name a few. In addition to their own headlining shows, they are also actively playing a variety of music festivals including Bang Your Head (Germany), Call of the Wild (England) and Rock Fest (WI).
They were nominated for – and won – the prestigious 2014 GA Music Award for “Rock Band of the Year,” and in 2015 they won the GA Music Award for “Video of the Year” for their songs “Wrong Way.” Their song “Get Ready” has been used by the Jacksonville Axemen Rugby Team for promotional commercials and played during home games, and is also on the soundtrack for the movie “Hair I Go Again.”
“The Revenge Of Rock” will be released in digital, LP and CD formats by Mighty Music Records on January 22nd, 2021.
