Death Valley High
Swerving between the sarcastic and the saccharine, horror obsessed provocateurs DEATH VALLEY HIGH deliver doom pop and death disco of the highest order. Outburn heralded them as the “New Face of Goth Rock,” while UK tastemaker Kerrang! advised fans of Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails to take note. But where most macabre music-makers craft anthems for the grave, DEATH VALLEY HIGH make songs to wake the dead. These guys don’t dwell in melancholy; this is a funeral procession to dance to. Universal monsters, Hammer films, and haunted houses collide within their sonic psyche, earning them coveted spots on tours with like minded rabble-rousers like Killing Joke, Combichrist, Crosses, Powerman 5000, and Orgy. DEATH VALLEY HIGH turns convention on its head, with unapologetic distaste for conformity and a tongue-in-cheek whimsy. DEATH VALLEY HIGH is unmistakably important, conjuring New Romantic majesty for the modern age.
