KICKIN VALENTINA plays loud unapologetic rock n roll. The band is quickly gaining attention while growing a
solid fan base across the US and abroad. In 2016, KICKIN VALENTINA began recording their second full
length album “Imaginary Creatures” being released on Mighty Music/Target Group, and is set for an August
2017 release date. The band has once again chosen to work with renowned Producer/Engineer Andy Reilly
(Bruce Dickinson, UFO, Asia, The Quireboys) at Muse Productions in Atlanta. In September 2017, KICKIN
VALENTINA will support the German band Nitrogods on the “BBQ Roadkill” tour with 9 shows in Germany,
and then set out on their own headline tour of Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Denmark and Sweden. Classic
Rock Magazine describes the band as “greasy riffs, wailing solos, and black-clad biker men who look like they
only come out at night, presumably to roam Sunset Strip in search of good times and blow.”
KICKIN VALENTINA was formed in 2013 by guitarist Heber Pampillon and drummer Jimmy Berdine. After
meeting vocalist Joe Edwards (whose distinctive style has been described as a “diamond in the dirt”), they
began writing and rehearsing, then recruited bassist Chris Taylor to round out the lineup. The band was
quickly 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/Target Group and released their first full length album “Super Atomic” to rave reviews around the
world. "We are excited to continue our relationship with Mighty Music/Target Group for the release of our
second full length album "Imaginary Creatures." In 2016 we completed successful tours of the U.S. and
Europe in support of our debut album "Super Atomic." We can't wait to play new places and meet our diehard
fans around the world in 2017" states bassist Chris Taylor.
KICKIN VALENTINA has been busy touring America and opening for artists as diverse as Buckcherry,
Queensryche, Pop Evil, Fozzy, Skid Row, Red Dragon Cartel, Sebastian Bach, Doro, Eve to Adam, Faster
Pussycat, Nonpoint, Kix, LA Guns, and Cilver to name a few. In May 2016 KICKIN VALENTINA embarked on
their first European tour performing in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Denmark
(Nordic Noise Festival). In addition to their own headlining shows, they have also performed at a variety of
music festivals including Rock Fest (WI), Monsters of Rock Cruise (2018), Farm Rock (IL, TN & GA), Soundwave
(MD), Rock n Skull (IL), Wolf Fest (CO), Skull Fest (NE), Summer Rock Party (IL), and Outskirts 53 Music & Bike
Fest (GA).
KICKIN VALENTINA has received press in major publications throughout Europe and Japan such as Burrn,
Young Guitar, Classic Rock, Sweden Rock, Legacy, Fireworks, Metalized, Aardshok, Metal Hammer, Deaf
Forever, Rock Hard, Rock It, Powerplay, and countless online magazines around the world. 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 single “Wrong Way.” Their song “Get Ready”
is being used by the Jacksonville Axemen Rugby Team for promotional commercials and played during home
games, and is also on the soundtrack for the new movie “Hair I Go Again” directed by Steve McClure and
produced by Kyle Kruger. Both “Get Ready” and the standout track “Alone” will be featured in the new
action horror movie and soundtrack “Altered” from award winning film director Kely McClung.
