Three seems to be Hunter Valentine‘s lucky number! Coming straight out of Season 3 of Showtime’s hit reality series “The Real L Word” into the release of their third studio album, “Collide & Conquer” (available October 23, 2012 via Megaforce/Sony), no one can deny the momentum behind the all-female trio.

For a little background, the group formed after underaged Kiyomi McCloskey (lead vocals/guitar) met drummer Laura Petracca in a crowded bar in their hometown of Toronto, Ontario. The two quickly forged an unbreakable bond over cheap beer and whiskey. Eight years later with two studio albums behind them, the band has grown into a veritable powerhouse that tours 200-plus dates per year around the world. The newest addition is bassist Veronica “Vero” Sanchez.
