St. Valentines Massacre - Biography
“Witnessing St. Valentines Massacre live is like being on the receiving end of a champagne enema for your ears.” – Lauren O’Neil, 98 Rock DJ (Tampa Bay’s 97.9 FM Radio)
St. Valentine's Massacre formed in the summer of 2005 out of the mutual love for music and the desire to create audible art with passion and power. Hidden away in back alley venues, the band sought to prove that they were worth their salt with every show they played. Their zealous nature earned them the respect of many, allowing them to play the larger scale venues with touring national acts such as 36 Crazyfists (Roadrunner), A Day To Remember (Victory), The Absence (Metal Blade), Phoenix Mourning (Metal Blade), Throwdown (Trustkill), It Dies Today (Trustkill) and more, while having a draw comparable and many times exceeding the draw of the signed bands, and amassing an army of loyal fans that quickly became known as The Condemned.
"St. Valentines Massacre is that HEAT!” – Charlie Thomas, Owner, Corrapollo Lyvewyre Records
