VALKYRIE Signs With RELAPSE RECORDS
Relapse Records has announced the signing of Virginia hard rock riff worshippers VALKYRIE. The band's first full-length album in over seven years was recorded at Earth Analog Studios in Champaign, Illinoia with producer Sanford Parker (NACHTMYSTIUM, PELICAN). An early 2015 release is expected. Formed in 2002, VALKYRIE consists of brothers Jake and Pete Adams (BARONESS, SAMHAIN) on guitar and vocals, Alan Fary (EARTHLING) on bass and Warren Hawkins on drums. Drawing heavily from the classic eras of hard rock and heavy metal, VALKYRIE plays guitar-driven rock 'n' roll replete with infectious solos and catchy, powerful vocals. The band has drawn numerous comparisons to greats like THIN LIZZY, SCORPIONS, BLACK SABBATH, early IRON MAIDEN and DEEP PURPLE. The quartet has released two full-length albums along with a series of EPs and singles. Comments guitarist/vocalist Jake Adams: "We are really excited about this new record. Some of these songs we have been working on for many years and we are glad to see them have a proper release on an excellent label. "This new record will be a step up in terms of song dynamics and musicianship from the previous albums. We think our fans will dig the fresh approach to the classic VALKYRIE sound."
THE MELVINS To Release 'Hold It In' In October
THE MELVINS return with "Hold It In", their first studio album as a quartet since 2010's "The Bride Screams Murder", on October 14. The new CD was recorded in both Los Angeles and Austin earlier this year. Joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover for the 12-song outing are BUTTHOLE SURFERS' guitar player Paul Leary and bass player JD Pinkus. "'Hold It In' is a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit," said Osborne. "Paul is one of the best guitar players I have ever heard and Pinkus has an outside the box type of approach to both guitar and bass that you just have to let it ride. "I can't believe this actually happened. I'm thrilled." "It's very rare you get a chance to work with three folks from the 'Break A Wish' foundation, all at the same time," said Pinkus. "I believe they'll remember their experience with me forever (or until they finally all lose their fight with S.I.D.S)." THE MELVINS kick off a round of U.S. tour dates on October 15 in Sacramento at Assembly, which also includes a performance at this year's Voodoo Experience in New Orleans. Osborne, Crover and Pinkus will be the touring lineup for this run of dates. Photo credit: Mackie Osborne
