    Spitvalves Band Photo

    Spitvalves are a punk band with horns from Orlando FL. Unlike most of the "well known musicians" from Orlando, the Spitvalves do write and perform all of their music themselves. Spitvalves do not have choreographed dance routines, costume changes, or pyrotechnics at their shows either, just pure punk rock.

    Formed eight years ago by a group of friends, Spitvalves are held together by their love of music and their fondness of being crammed in a van together for weeks at a time. With influences far too numerous to list Spitvalves music is a complex mix of all things punk separated from the pack by strong writing and musicianship. Spitvalves' new release "Movin On" was recorded at Big Blue Meenie Studios and was produced by Sal Villanueva (Thursday, Taking Back Sunday). The band is extremely proud of this release. Since Spitvalves have been touring for two years supporting their previous effort everyone is happy to showcase their growth as writers and musicians.

    Punk bands need to stay out on the road, and Spitvalves do. In the past year the band has performed over 200 shows. Thirty-Eight shows in 40 days on "Spirit of the Streets", a European Tour with Murphy's Law and The Business was definitely the longest stretch. Spitvalves also made considerably shorter runs up and down the East coast as well as trips throughout the Southeast opening for a slew of national acts.

    Spitvalves' true stronghold is in the Central Florida area where they have received numerous acknowledgements from local press and radio. The band also gets quite a turn out at their local shows. Last time Spitvalves played in town they broke the house record at Hard Rock Live Orlando with 3700 in attendance; surprisingly the club capacity is 2800.
