Death Valley High Premiere New Video For Their Cover Of Christian Death‘s “Cavity – First Communion” Feat. Chino Moreno (Deftones)

Death Valley High have premiered a new video for their cover of Christian Death‘s “Cavity – First Communion.” This track features Chino Moreno (Deftones, etc.) and it will appear on the band’s new EP “Duel,“ which is set to be released on August 23.

Reyka Osburn commented:

“We were on tour with Crosses on the East Coast and were all backstage hanging out. Chino had some music playing in the background for post-show vibes, and when this Christian Death song came on, I burst over to their room. We all fawned over our love for this particular record, ‘Only Theatre Of Pain‘. By the end of ‘Cavity – First Communion,’ he says, ‘We gotta play this song before the end of the tour!’ ‘DONE,’ I firmly agree and added, ‘We should RECORD it!’ He looked at me with eyes ablaze and exclaimed, ‘We can do ANYTHING!”

Fast forward, the tour ends, and we never get a chance to play it! But I had already taken the collaboration to heart. DVH started discussing an all cover mixtape of sorts, one where we would collaborate with friends on each song. After prepping a rough draft, I sent it over to Chino‘s approving: ‘I’m IN.’ After some time went by, we realized our remake was just a little too faithful to the original, so we started asking, ‘What’s actually new here to offer?’

If we had done it live, we probably would’ve done just that: a faithful tribute to a classic. But since we were committing to a studio recording, we all knew we had to circle back and rekindle it. After all, this was some sacred ground we were treading! We can now comfortably say that we’ve done our honest best — contributing to the original, not just done a cover for the sake of doing one.”

Chino Moreno (Deftones), Spirit In The Room, Etc. To Guest On New Death Valley High EP

Death Valley High will be releasing a new EP titled “Duel” on August 23. The first half of the effort features cover songs that find the band “dueling” with other artists such as Chino Moreno (Deftones), Spirit In The Room, etc. The second half features various remixes. A teaser for the EP can be found below:

Death Valley High commented:

“‘DUEL‘ is our equivalent to the modern age mixtape; it severs the rules of a conventional release. The special part is, that for every song in this compilation, we assigned a specific ‘adversary.’ The whole idea was to go up against our collaborators’ and our own comfort zones. We wanted to prove that doubling down on the friction would spark fires.”

01. “Here Comes The Rain” (Death Valley High Vs. Chris Connelly)
02. “Cavity – First Communion” (Death Valley High Vs. Chino Moreno)
