Exactly the same for me Lettard.. I love the debut but could never get on with Soul Salvation. May have to dust it off. 

I’m interested to see what happens with this, hopefully Hugo’s pipes are still golden

New album out in March - First single ‘Sandy’ which I believe is an unreleased track from the original line up. 
I would expect further details soon if the album is dropping next month...

Just saw that the album is out May 2021 via 20th Century Music. The above tune ‘Sandy’ is apparently not on it.

Press release:

The ‘Demos from the Attic‘ collection comes two decades after the quartet’s much loved debut surfaced on Giant / Reprise Records in 1990.  Recording began after the touring cycle for that record was completed and continued throughout 1991. Guitarist Adam Holland explains, “We bought an 8-track recorder, a small console and some speakers, and start putting together the demos for the next record. We produced and mixed them all ourselves in Neil’s parent’s basement and my parent’s basement. We recorded so many ideas because we didn’t know which ones would go the distance.”

The band members weren’t even aware that between them they had so much available material. Bassist Gerard Zappa says, “When the label approached us about this idea, I had already moved houses and I had packed crates of cassettes and DAT tapes. But I had stored a lot of them at my sister’s. I had to ask her to rummage through the crates as I was in a different city. I had to explain the difference between a regular cassette and a DAT so she knew what she was looking for.  It was due to her patience and persistence that I was able to dust off so many songs that we are proud of to this day.

As for the future of the band, they will continue to reunite for the occasional show every now and again – as they did last year for a very special occasion alongside their friends in Night Ranger, Danger Danger and Trixter – with no “big plans” on the cards.  But, according to keyboardist Craig Pullman, “even though we do not play as the band Valentine we are all still close.  And as you know, Gerard, Adam and I still play together with the Steve Augeri Band. As for Valentine. anything is possible given the right circumstances.”

Jeez, I'll take this 10 times over new recordings, lol. I really like that 'Sandy' song and bummed it won't be on the album. It'll all be good fun, but I don't expect the sound quality is going to make it an album full of keepers. To this day my main issue was the weak production on their debut, and that was a fully "polished" release, so can't hold too many high hopes for a bunch of demos.

But, I can't wait to hear what the second album would have sounded like.

Its pretty unanimous to me anyways, soul salvation fucking blew, it sucked, I fucking couldnt even listen to the full thing at once, it was like half way through each track i find myself fucking shoot myself in the face bored, I thought it licked so much ass, then u are comparing it to the highly bad fucking ass, no filler close to perfect debut, SS is fucking garbage. and shit.

I though these guys were based in the US? When I add items to my basket it charges me in euros...plus offers me free next day delivery? that can't be right cause its 7 euros for 5-7 day  :) won't take chance until I'm sure.
