Following a sold out North American Tour with Lennon Stella, Toronto’s own indie-pop band, VALLEY are excited share their deliberate new track, “Park Bench.” The release of “Park Bench” coincides with the band’s announcement of their forthcoming EP, MAYBE: Side B, coming June 7, 2019.

“’Park Bench’ is a timestamp from the year 2018,” says drummer Karah, “It touches on social, generational, and political ideas that we felt were relevant to us at the time.” “Park Bench” is reminiscent of the time they spent living and recording in the U.S., during what felt like a highpoint of social turmoil and learning how to navigate that. Guitarist Mike adds, “The song speaks about political issues and was written during a time of chaos in the American government and a lot of the world was divided by it. We wanted to make the song sound the way the world and our lives felt at the time. Lots of chaos, yet lots of beautiful people fighting for the right things, lots of push and pull, lots of voices being heard and being silenced.”

“Park Bench” is released as the second single from their upcoming project and the follow up to MAYBE: Side A which was released in November of last year. MAYBE: Side A, reengaged VALLEY’s existing fanbase and caught the attention of the indie music scene, garnering features with The 405, Idobi Radio and current radio play on Indie 88.

The second installment, MAYBE: Side B, is set to be released June 7 and is positioned to be one of the most anticipated records from an emerging band this year. While on tour with Lennon Stella last month, the band gained over 5,000 new Instagram followers of concert goers who have become highly engaged fans. VALLEY will continue to play to new fans this summer during their festival dates, playing Liquid Arts Festival and Festival D’été de Quebec alongside a prestigious line up; headed up by Imagine Dragons, Bishop Briggs and Kongos.
