The Rise & Fall of St. Valentine illustrates two sides of loveā€”the painfully beautiful and the beautifully painful. The Rise encompasses the feeling of meeting someone, falling in love and the sheer awesomeness of moments spent together. The Fall explores the heartbreaking, angry, lonely haze that follows a love failed.


Sigh No More takes you through the journey that is love. They begin with the title track, Sigh No More, that proclaims, “Love will not betray, dismay or enslave you. It will set you free.” And from there, they delve into the darkest depths of exquisite pain, anger and helplessness that it can bring. They speak of love, of longing and of loss, climaxing with I Gave You All, a powerful, lamenting song that aims to “force from the world a patient smile.” Honest, vulnerable and inviting, the album fully immerses you. Forty-eight and a half minutes later, you emerge from their world satisfied and hopeful, yearning for more and desperately wanting to do it again.
