Biography

The Den was formed in Southern California in 1986 by two brothers, Brian(loops) and Scott(smivee) Valencia. In the early 90's the group (consisting of 5 members) recorded two full length albums and toured all over the Western United States. Opening up for major 90’s headliners like The Beastie Boys, Cypress Hill and Naughty By Nature. They recorded soundtracks for TransWorld Snowboarding Videos and recorded Cameos with popular California rock acts like Snot and Creature Feature. At the end of the decade the group disbanded and went their separate ways to pursue other careers. Their careers eventually spread them out across different parts of the U.S. Then in 2005 a Salt Lake City 1200 hobos producer, Briskone, was putting together a compilation album and sought out the Den for a reunion track. This album brought two members of the group back together. Que and Smiv recorded their first track together in 10 years. It was aptly titled “10 Years Ago” The sond drew solid reviews and quickly became the most popular underground track in Salt Lake City. Once again the den was in business. They continued working with Brisk. Now in 2008 the band has completed its first full length project in 12 years. They are proud to announce their Netweight Records release titled, "Mid-Life Crisis" The group has been performing in Salt Lake City, New Jersey/NYC, The Pacific Northwest, and California.
