L.A dystopian punk band Death Valley Girls announce new album -Â Darkness RainsÂ via Suicide Squeeze.
Los Angeles based "doom-boogie, occult glam rockers" Death Valley Girls have shared a new video today for fierce new single 'Disaster (Is What Weâre After)' featuring a very special guest, the godfather of punk, Iggy Pop. Also announced is the upcoming release of the groups third studio album Darkness Rains, which is due out October 5th via Suicide Squeeze.
The video has been directed by Kansas Bowling and shot on 16mm film, and is a recreation of the famous Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger short. We see Iggy Pop star rather than Andy Warhol, the film focuses on him eating a burger and listening to Death Valley Girls which he proudly proclaims toward the end.
Death Valley Girls had this to say of it âWeâre strong believers in opti-mysticism and connecting with people through rock nâ roll,â they explain, âHaving Iggy dig our music was more than amazing for us. When Kansas told us she had a dream about recreating the âAndy Warhol Eating a Hamburgerâ short film but with Iggy starring for our music video, we were cautiously excited about the possibility. Next thing we know weâre in Miami with Iggy himself, and a rock nâ roll dream became reality!â Â Boom!
Check out the video below.
