Get Tickets $35-$39.50
with Mickey Darling and Charli Adams

Juno Award nominated band Valley return this year with their most intimate and personal record yet. Water the Flowers, Pray for a Garden (out August 30 via Universal Music Canada/Capitol Records) is an exploration of grief and resilience from one of today’s most exciting alternative-pop bands.

Since forming 10 years ago, Valley have accrued over 1 billion streams globally, having appeared on viral charts in the US, Philippines, Korea, Japan and more. Along with their three Juno Award nominations, the band has also garnered praise from Consequence, Wonderland, American Songwriter and CBC. Helping prompt much of their global recognition was “Like 1999,” a gold certified hit that went viral on TikTok.

Valley have also become known for their high-energy live shows, which have been brought to renowned festivals like Life Is Beautiful, Governors Ball, Slow Life and Wunderstruck as well as their debut US TV performance as part of Stephen Colbert’s #LiveAtHome session. Having opened for artists like Lennon Stella, Dermot Kennedy, COIN and the Band CAMINO, Valley also nearly sold out their first-ever North American headlining tour.

Valley’s latest album was born out of a three-year-old demo of the LP’s title track and was eventually written while members Rob Laska, Karah James and Alex Dimauro isolated in a cabin with executive producer Chase Lawrence of COIN. This will be the band’s first album without one of the founding members Mickey Brandolino, whose decision to leave the band inspired many of the lyrics.
