Alt-pop Band, Valley, Releases New Single “Have A Good Summer (Without Me)”

Following being announced as support for Dermot Kennedy’s latest Canadian tour, Valley releases their latest single, “Have A Good Summer (Without Me)”!

“Have A Good Summer (Without Me)” is the fourth single off Valley’s upcoming sophomore album, Lost In Translation.

This single was released only a week ago and has already amassed over 440,000 streams on Spotify.

“Have A Good Summer (Without Me)” follows three previously released tracks including, “Throwback Tears,” “Good, but not together,” and “Break For You” which have already accumulated 10 million streams globally.

Valley wrapped up their headlining North American tour ‘Lost In Translation’ and will be back touring in Southeast Asia and Australia this summer adding new songs to their setlist.

Valley consists of Rob Laska (lead vocals), Mickey Brandolino (guitar, synths), Alex Dimauro (bass), and Karah James (drums, vocals).

Valley was formed by accident back in 2016 when a local studio double-booked them; Karah and Mickey played in one band while Rob and Alex played in another.

2023 is already starting to be an explosive year for this amazing band.

The summer in our minds is a romanticized version of life. Love and its adventures are heightened with the heat and the water and the sunshine. The blow of losing someone before those precious few months of the year is devastating to say the least. ‘Have A Good Summer (Without Me)’ is loving them so much, you will let them go.

If this isn’t the song of the summer for heartbreak, then I don’t know what is.

Their sophomore album, Lost In Translation, is out June 23rd!
