Blending themes as varied as bikers, the occult, alcohol and dirty women, the Death Valley Knights are a London-based hard rock/metal band looking to help you bang your heads, throw the horns and slam copious amounts of beer. The heavy rocking quartet have just announced they will release a brand new EP this year, entitled Nothing Left To Steal set for release on 2nd December 2013 via Code 7. The title track from the EP will be the first single and will be released a week prior on 25th November 2013.
Formed in late 2009, the band has received national airplay for their single ‘Promises’ and the B-side ‘Mercury Rising‘. 2012 saw Death Valley Knights playing the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock Music Festival, UK’s largest Heavy Metal festival alongside artists such as Machine Head, Testament and other giants of the genre. The Bloodstock website that year debuted the band’s latest drinking anthem, ‘Shut Up and Drink’.
Following a string of shows that autumn, the ‘Knights went back to the rehearsal room to slam out new material for their planned EP release. Engineered and co-produced by Phil Kinman (ex-New Device) the project yielded five tracks of pure hard-edged, head bangin’ metal that any self respecting rocker can blast from his (or her) speakers.
Says Jake Thorsen – “We’re really pleased with the way the material came out. Working with Phil was great as well because we tend to write the material in the rehearsal room attempting to achieve a certain vibe or feel to the music and he definitely helped us pull it off. You will bang your head and throw the horns.”
November 2013 will see the EP release and Death Valley Knights will be playing shows throughout the UK both to promote their latest offering and to swell the masses of fist-pumping concert-goers who share their love of all things loud (in the most obnoxious way)!
