Death Valley High, the NorCal quartet that Alternative Press described as “a particularly edgy Queens Of The Stone Age with a few stolen At The Drive-In moves thrown in,” return with Positive Euth on June 4, via Minus Head Records.
“With Positive Euth, we turned everything up a notch,” explains Reyka Osburn, singer and guitar player for Death Valley High. “If it was dark, we went darker. If it was hard, we went harder, and if it was dancy, we went, you guessed it… dancier.”
The 12-track album was produced by Osburn and Jesse Nichols (The White Stripes, Ty Segall, AFI), mixed by Eric Stenman (Weezer, Deftones) and mastered by Brian Gardner (Queens Of The Stone Age, Linkin Park). Positive Euth was recorded in late 2012 at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California.
The band kicks off a brief tour, which includes an Austin stop during SXSW, on March 6th, at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco.
