Dear Sanity........

Recommended Posts

2013 has arrived with the holidays and all their crazy insanity behind us. What better way to embrace the madness than a Dear John Letter to the past. NO.....a DEAR SANITY letter! The new band LaValle will debut their new CD , "Dear Sanity" March 2013 on Kivel Records. LaValle featuring Carsten Schulz (Evidence One), Paul Logue (Edens Curse), Ramy Ali (Evidence One), and guitarist Eddie LaValle deliver an old school sound with an updated PUNCH! Pulling from such a pool of tal...ent, this band delivers for fans of "Tooth and Nail" era Dokken, mixed with a blend of Bratta and Lynch influenced guitar playing piled on top of a mountain sized wall of HUGE choruses. All sewed up nice and tight by Producer Ty Sims. This is an album that will satisfy fans of the genre of old, while gaining fans of new. But don't take our word for it, hear it for yourself with the first single "FADING LIKE THE SUN" set to be debuted by Steve Price on ARFM Radio Sat., Jan. 12th !! Tune in and don't miss it!! Dear Sanity will go on PRE ORDER This Tues @ www.kivelrecords.com

 

 

We also want to take the time to unveil our latest album art for this release. Created by none other than renowned graphic designer Thomas Ewerhard (Tango Down, Shakra, Edens Curse, Edguy, Masterplan). So without further adieux here it is.....LaValle "Dear Sanity"

Now, everyone knows how serious we take the visual aspect of our releases, as serious as we take the actual music itself. We have over the years been asked multiple times, what goes into creating one of our album covers? So here you go folks...a glimpse at a typical cover shoot for one of our releases featuring renowned photographer Kent Miller of Kent Miller Studios. Dear Sanity begins Pre Sale orders 1/14/13

Hey HH people!!

 

LaValle "Dear Sanity" is now up on www.kivelrecords.com for pre order.!! We will be unveiling TWO Songs this weekend. That's right, we said two. Not one, not one and a half. Not snippets. Not half a clip. Two COMPLETE Songs. All pre orders between Today and Feb 5th. Will receive a special edition poster of the album art. To avoid past pre order issues where people didn't get a poster. We are putting it on a time line of date ordered. We promise this album is going to really impress people. We didnt dissapoint with TANGO DOWN, and we are not going to stop with LaValle. Also, let me say....wait til u see what else we have in store.

Sounds great! You're right in the "Tooth & Nail" era Dokken description.

 

Yes, Tango Down did not dissapoint. Made my top ten in 2012.

Hope the LaValle makes your Top ten for 013!!!!

 

Thanks!

It's funny that my thoughts towards this are very similar to that of Tango Down. Like David Reece, I feel as though Carsten Schulz is a good vocalist, but has been on a long string of very average CDs. 'Identity Crisis' was no doubt Reece's finest hour since 'On Target' and I have no doubt at all that this will be Schulz's finest hour since... well, possibly ever? Sounds very nice to me.
