Fuse distorted guitar riffs over dance-punk beats and you'll have Death Valley High - the mixtape to a doomsday dance party.
"Doom, In Full Bloom" is the followup LP to Death Valley High's critically acclaimed "The Similarities Of The Loveless And The Undead". This new, full length record sees the band ameliorate their sound catapulting to what Julie Xmas (Made Out of Babies) defined as "Doom Pop".
"Doom, In Full Bloom" is a self produced effort boasting the mixing talents of Alex Newport (Mars Volta, At The Drive-In, Your Enemies Friends) and long time collaborator Eric Stenman (Thrice, MSTRKRFT, Senses Fail).
Death Valley High features Reyka Osburn (Tinfed, Ghostride) on vocals, guitar and synths; Adam Bannister on drums; Chris Sanders on guitar and Huffy Hafera on bass for what Reyka calls "DVH's strongest and most dedicated lineup to date; Inglorious Basterds-style".
"Doom, In Full Bloom", is out now and available through http://deathvalleyhigh.bigcartel.com or for download at iTunes.
Death Valley High is currently playing select shows with expected dates through the U.S. and Europe, as well as, a B-Sides/Remix EP to follow in 2010.
