“Kick-ass, in your face, on your back, muscular – if ‘Valentino is Dead’ weren’t a crunchy and melodic punk rock band they’d be a certified danger to society.” – Tony Clayton-Lea (The Irish Times) 

“What impresses me most about Valentino Is Dead apart from their disgustingly catchy tunes and serious shades is the fact they do EVERYTHING for themselves producing quality goods that compete admirably in a global marketplace” – Pete Holidai (The Radiators from space, Trouble Pilgrims)

“Valentino Is Dead’s debut ‘Misadventures In Punk Rock’ is on my Top 10 list of the most exciting rock albums of the year. VID respect the traditions and energy of old-school punk rock, yet they magically sound completely relevant today. They’re hot and they are FUN! Keep your eye on these guys!” Michael James (Producer / Mixer Hole, L7, New Radicals, Edwin McCain,  Robben Ford, The Coronas.)

 “Influenced by the homeland, they deliver songs that have meaning, reflecting on their lives, experiences and politics. Get out of your chair, pour a cold one and put on ‘Valentino is Dead’. You will be thoroughly entertained and finding yourself singing the choruses, dancing around the room and rockin’ like you’ve never done before.” – David Donnelly (DNA Mastering: Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Blink182, Aerosmith and Motley Crue)

“Valentino is Dead’s debut album is a ten-track effort full of effervescent melodies… the record is a welcome walk down memory lane for fans who miss the days when the distortion pedal was King. Their fusion of power pop, garage, grunge and ska definitely makes for a fun and thoroughly unpredictable listen.” – Edwin McFee (Hot Press Magazine)
