VALERIAN SWING is a fantastic and exciting trio of bright young musicians hailing from Correggio in Italy. The band has been around since 2005, when the members were merely teenagers. In that time, they have toured multiple countries, honing an extraordinarily dynamic, frenetic, and highly musical brand of sonic madness to a signature level that is uniquely its own.

In July 2010, the three friends entered Matt Bayles’ (MASTODON, ISIS, BOTCH) Red Room Recording in Seattle, WA to track songs for what they were intending to be a full length record. Upon completion, they send out CD-R’s of the recording to record labels that they suspected they might fit in well with. It took all of 3 minutes tops for Magic Bullet Records to know that we simply must put the album out and share this great band with anyone willing to listen. The same recording we first heard back at the end of 2010 has become what is now known as A Sailor Lost Around the Earth, which sees release worldwide on April 12, 2011.
