VALIENT THORR Debut Lyric Video For “No Count Blues”

They came from Venus to destroy the cities.  VALIENT THORR is a wild ass Rock N Roll band said to hail from inside of the planet Venus. Since crash landing on Earth in the year 2000, they’ve played well over 1500 shows all over the world. They’ve toured with visionaries from Motörhead and Joan Jett to contemporary heroes like Mastodon, Gogol Bordello, and Clutch.  Since 2005 they have put out six full-length records and two seven inches! And just so you don’t think we’re blowing smoke, look them up! This is only the cusp of the feats of greatness this hard working, sweat drenched band has accomplished!


Old Salt will be released on July 29th; this is their first album for Napalm Records debut and seventh full-length release.   Old Salt is the highly anticipated follow up to 2013’s Our Own Masters.


Today the band has released a lyric video for the first single from Old Salt entitled “No Count Blues”.  The video can be viewed HERE:

“Alahoyus Thorriors!  If you pre-order the album today you get an instagrab of one of the tracks today! It’s called “No Count Blues”. It’s a fast paced jam meant to help you shake off that feeling you get sometimes when the worlds beating you down. Shake it up & shake it out!  Grab your copy HERE.
