Max Dedication

3 Hours of Valencia! →


In honor of max. Tune in until 1 AM.

It’s time for a hell yeah Valencia project! With the help of Valencia fans, I would like to create a scrapbook for the band to show them how much they mean to us. This project will take place from now until December 1, 2011. All entries MUST be submitted by this time to be included in the scrapbook.


I’m looking for photos of the band or of you with the band, letters from you, fan art inspired by the band or their music, or anything creative relating to Valencia you can think of. Want to cover a song of theirs? Burn it to a cd or send me an mp3 and I’ll include it!

Items may be submitted via email (, through the post (email for the address; please include your full name and what the item will be so I will know what to look for), or through hell yeah Valencia’s submission page which can be found HERE.

Any questions can be sent to hell yeah Valencia’s ask box or emailed to!

I hope a lot of you choose to support this project and I look forward to seeing your entries for Valencia’s scrapbook!

On Friday afternoon, September 30th, our brother and former drummer in our band, Maxim Soria, passed away in a motorcycle accident.   We always knew Max as being one of the most meticulous and cautious people we’ve ever met, and hearing the news and processing it over the past few days has been incredibly hard for all of us.  We’d like to thank everyone that has been reaching out to us during this difficult time.  The shock of this news left the Soria family, our families, our close friends, and ourselves  completely devastated, but hearing everyone the world over leave their condolences helped everyone realize how important Max is to the people he touched.  Keeping that in mind, we have been doing our best to remember the best times we had with him, think about the way he impacted so many thousands of people around the world, and it helps us find a little glimmer of light in these very dark moments.

We toured with Max for seven years, but even after he left the band, he remained a big part in all of our lives.  Whenever we were home from tour, we would spend almost every day together, either talking about music, movies, food, or just life in general.  He was everyone’s confidante, always lending his ear and his wisdom to anyone who needed advice and went to him for it.  In fact, the last time I spoke with Max was a time where he spent an hour on the phone with me and helped guide me through a personal situation I had no idea how to handle.  I’ll never forget that about him.  We will always appreciate the chance we had to be surrounded by such a bright, caring, talented, and intelligent person.

After the overwhelming reaction we have seen worldwide regarding what has happened, we would like to inform everyone of a public service and remembrance to be held in Max’s honor this Wednesday and Thursday, October 5th and 6th at Shelly Funeral Home and St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Warrington, Pennsylvania.  If you are able to, please join us and the Soria family in paying our respects and celebrating Max’s life.  It may have been tragically cut short, but his family, friends, us, and you all have so many great memories to take away from the short time we had with him.  Once again, thank you all for your support and kind words, it has meant the world to all of us.

I’d like some feedback before I decide whether or not to do this…


I would really love to put together a Valencia scrapbook, full of photos from fans, letters, drawings, anything fans can think of to show the band just how much we appreciate them. Would the followers of hellyeahvalencia participate if I did this? You would be able to mail hyvalencia items or just send in things via email and I can print them out. I’ll put it all in a nice scrapbook and find a way to get it to the band. I was thinking this could be a two month project and have all entries due by December 1st so I will have time to put it together as a Christmas present for the band.

So, what do you all think? Would you participate and send in things for the band?

I’ve gotten some good feedback about this idea so I think it’s gonna happen! I’ll have the full project planned by the end of this week. Thanks for the feedback!



Ex-Valencia drummer, Maxim Soria, has died in a motorcycle crash. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Maxim’s family, Valencia and all of his close friends. Take a moment out of your day to remember Maxim.
