Valletta announce new album “Come Alive”

VALLETTA have announced the release of their forthcoming album, Come Alive, due out July 14th, 2023. Formed in Raleigh, North Carolina, in May 2022, the outfit deliver an impressive sound with a blackened rock ‘n’ roll foundation. Come Alive is the quartet’s impressive debut unleashing a shadowy darkness with lashings of distortion. Stream the title track HERE

Of the single, the band comments: “‘Come Alive’ is a call to action for those who remain silent in the face of mass tragedies caused by the religious dogma and divisive politics that their blind belief helps perpetuate. It is a challenge to perceive these events through a different lens.”
Come Alive explores concepts of being both trapped in yourself, as well as being trapped within your environment and wider institutions/ organizations. Across the album raucous guitars and catchy riffs join forces with dynamic percussion and demonic harsh vocals to produce a powerful impact. From the opener “Come Alive” to “Bringing the Worst”, VALLETTA delve into a delicious smorgasbord of guitar tones, thunderous rhythms and melodic leads. The band delicately balance their intricate melodies against the heavy bass, ferocious rhythms and dark lyrics. “Saint” is about finding yourself, and the struggles of losing yourself on the journey. Musically the track combines sections of uplifted chord progressions with gloomier sections mirroring the ebbs and flows of the song’s narrative. Becoming lost and left wandering in circles is the inspiration behind “Soot & Ash”. Groove rhythms introduce a marching feel progressing the track along, only to be met with eerie dissonance as the path becomes less clear.

VALLETTA succeed in crafting a polished release in Come Alive with catchy hooks all encompassed in a shadowy atmosphere. They delve into intense and emotive concepts which are aptly reflected across through their composition style. Come Alive is hard-hitting with a fierce and deeply engaging sound.
