Alternative rock band Valencia is breaking their silence to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their seminal record Dancing With A Ghost. The band has shared their new single, “Weight of The World,” which premiered on Note To Scene alongside an exclusive interview.

The record is available everywhere digitally via I Surrender Records today.
In addition to Dancing With A Ghost (10 Year Deluxe Jawn), Valencia and I Surrender Records have also launched a limited edition “Weight of The World” 7″ in celebration of the 15th anniversary of This Could Be A Possibility, the band’s debut studio album. The 7” will feature “Weight of The World” as well as an acoustic version of “The Space Between.” It is now available for pre-order in the I Surrender Records webstore: https://orcd.co/valenciawotw
“‘Weight of the World’ is a song that has been floating around for many years in the Valencia camp, but was never fully realized until now,” the band shares. “While looking back at the song we noticed the lyrics are more relevant than ever. The line “At your lowest point you start to see yourself and can begin to grow” really defines the current state we’re living in.”
They continue: “The world may seem awful but the opposite way to look at that is how amazing it is that society has seemingly hit rock bottom and can finally see its flaws. At the bottom, we have become painfully aware of the need to grow and evolve and the only way out is up. We need to be better for each other’s sake, let alone ourselves and the weight of the world.”
