Twelve Gauge Valentine is a southern metalcore band from Bastrop and Monroe, Louisiana, with their debut album Shock Value released on 3rd October 2006. The band was initially supported by the Sound Vs. Silence label, with whom they released their debut EP, Exclamationaire. The band's current record label is Solid State Records, to which bands such as Underoath and Norma Jean are signed.
The band as of recent has had somewhat of a shaky lineup.
The band formed under the original lineup of Jonathon Cooper on bass, Josh White on guitar, Josh Gross on guitar, Jonathon Webster on drums, and Jon Green on vocals. This lineup recorded the Exclamationaire album in 2005. In 2006 Josh Gross left and the band recorded Shock Value as a 4-piece with White doing both guitar tracks. Shortly after the release of this album another guitarist was added with no information given other than his name being Kyle Snellenberger. In the start of 2007 Kyle, Josh White, and Jonathon Webster parted from the band, and thus Josh Fife (Jon Green's younger brother) was brought on board as guitarist. New Orleans based Michael Watson replaced Webster, and Florida based Jake Campbell had been pulled in on second guitar.
The band moved to Tampa Bay, Florida in Fall 2007 with plans to write a new album. The group is still active as of 2008.
