The Skinny: The Great Valley released their highly anticipated LP entitled Ruthless on March 1st, 2011. The release is packed with 8 brand new songs that come straight from the heart. The band’s lead single “Dirty Work” has been picked for rotation by several rock radio stations across the country and debuted at 125 on iTunes top 200 Rock Charts.

The band recorded the entire record in their basement; states front man Louis, “We wanted to record it in the comfort of our own home, give it a more raw feel as opposed to a huge production and studio. We feel that it’s easier for people to connect with music that way, we had no clock down there, so we wouldn’t worry about the time, just music.”
