Deftones’ Chino Moreno, Etc. Among Guests On New Death Valley High EP


Death Valley High have announced an August 23rd release date for their new EP “Duel” on minus HEAD Records. The outing will find the band taking on various covers and remixes, with the covers finding the band pitting themselves against a number of guest artists.

Deftones, etc. frontman Chino Moreno is notably  among those who is taking part in the EP, appearing on cover of Christian Death‘s “Cavity – First Communion“. Speaking of the concept for the EP, the band 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.”

While the exact list of covers wasn’t specified, it would appear that songs by Banarama, Metallica, Faith No More and others will be tackled on the outing. A series of remixes will populate the second half of the EP, including one done by Deadsy‘s Carlton Bost. The following track listing for “Duel” was provided:

01 – “Here Comes The Rain” (Death Valley High Vs. Chris Connelly)
02 – “Cavity – First Communion” (Death Valley High Vs. Chino Moreno)
03 – “Cruel Summer” (Death Valley High Vs. Hanin Elias)
04 – “The Crab Song” (Death Valley High Vs. Rykarda Parasol)
05 – “Jump In The Fire” (Death Valley High Vs. Spirit In The Room)
06 – “SUNSHINE CLEANERS” (Death Valley High Vs. Paul Wiley remix)
07 – “MERCI” (Death Valley High Vs. sondottir remix)
08 – “The Present” (Death Valley High Vs. Hounds remix)
