Founded by a ragtag band of friends in Kansas City, MO back in the day, this year Valedictorians are set to celebrate its 15th anniversary.
Having already released 6 LPs and 4 EPs over the course of those years and having their 7th studio album in the making and scheduled for a release later this year, we are absolutely riding the wave right now!
While typically classified as a punk rock band, Valedictorians also incorporated a lot of related genres into their music, including Jazz, Funk, and Minimal Techno, besides the Soft Rock.
Mellow motifs and punky rhythm combined resulted in more than 8 million sales over those 15 years, averaging 800,000 purchases per LP/EP.
