Death Valley Girls New Video

After recently announcing that their new album, Darkness Rains, is set for release on Oct 5 via Suicide Squeeze Records, Los Angeles doom boogie/dystopian punk/occult glam rockers Death Valley Girls have shared a new single & video entitled ‘More Dead’. Speaking about the new track, the band commented: “After having experiences with people we love struggling to stay alive, we believe the harder the battle, the less one is able to ask for help. We wanted to write a song about how important and necessary each person is, especially these days. We need numbers now more than ever to fight the good fight.”

The video director Dylan Mars Greenberg went on to add “I wanted to create a video that dealt with a serious issue that affected both Bonnie and I but in an abstract way. I used animation to generate the concept of rebirth and the juxtaposition of aerial videography with dark environments to tell the story of the overworld and underworld fighting over a soul. I should also mention we filmed with an iguana indoors but then he escaped into Bronson canyon. We all believe he is now very strong and happy in his new world.”

On their third album, Darkness Rains, bassist Alana Amram, drummer Laura Harris, and a rotating cast of guests like Shannon Lay, The Kid (Laura Kelsey), and members of The Make Up, The Shivas, and Moaning help elevate the band from their rogue beginnings to a communal ritualistic musical force. On the surface level, Death Valley Girls churn out the hypercharged, in the red, scuzzy rock every generation yearns for, but there is a more subversive force percolating beneath the surface that imbues the band with an exhilarating cosmic energy.
