Showing no sign of cooling down after the release of their summer single, “Set it on Fire,” Austin-based rockers, Saints of Valory, are back with their latest release, “Red Smoke.”
Another sizzling hot track, “Red Smoke” was written as a love story – two people reminiscing about the days when they were wild and young.”
“I wanted the lyrics to be raw,” shares lead singer, Gavin Jasper. “It's about lust, love and midnight escapades. It was equally as important that the music helped paint the portrait of what an uninhibited teenage fantasy would sound like. I've always been intrigued by what life would be like if I had lived my young teenage years in a different country or culture.”
On December 2, Saints of Valory will join Imagine Dragons, Dashboard Confessional and Banners at the annual 93.3 KTCL Not So Silent Night holiday concert in Colorado. The show will be held at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, and you can grab your tickets here.
Formed in 2010, Saints of Valory is comprised of Gavin Jasper (Vocals), Godfrey James (Guitar) and Stephen Buckle (Keys). In November of that year, the band self-released their debut The Bright Lights, which featured an early version of their track "Providence".
