We’re never going to not mention the way that Philly bands hit different. We’d say we’re sorry, but that would be a lie. Why? Because it’s the god damn TRUTH.
So yeah, you guessed it. A Philly based band, wait no, THE – PHILLY BASED BAND – Valencia has exciting news for us fans.

Now? We celebrate ten-years of ‘Dancing With A Ghost’ in the very best way. Reissuing the album on vinyl, all thanks to Know Hope Records, for the very first time, you can pre-order it right here, right now!
Valencia – ‘Dancing With A Ghost’
Originally released on October 12th, 2010, Dancing With A Ghost was a momentous album. It created waves for the band in both a personal and professional aspect. Vocalist Shane Henderson notes, “‘Dancing With A Ghost’ in its title form, symbolizes those changes and how we experience, learn, and grow from them[..]” Full of songs that hit all the marks of social and personal struggles, this album helps you to learn to let go.
The most collectively diverse and ambitious record of the band’s career, Dancing With A Ghost, has jam after freaking jam.
Valencia – ‘Spinning Out’
The ten year-anniversary addition is presented in three unique vinyl variants with a deluxe presentation that the album has always demanded and deserved. Completely re-imagined artwork is also a limited addition to the collection, brought to you by guitarist Brendan Walter.
