Valley of the Sun – Old Gods

VALLEY OF THE SUN

Old Gods by Valley of the Sun is released on 24th May 2019 on Fuzzorama Records

“Valley of the Sun sound like one of those bands best experienced in a dive bar with sweat dripping off the walls – a perfect setting for the short, sharp shock of ‘The Hunt’, the QOTSA-esque jaunt of ‘Land of Fools’, where Ryan Ferrier’s huge vocals sound like Steven Tyler experiencing an exorcism.” – METAL HAMMER

“There’s no question that Valley of the Sun are placing themselves at the forefront of the new generation of American heavy rock.” – THE OBELISK

Fuzzorama Records – home to world beating rock of Truckfighters, Deville and Skraeckoedlan – is thrilled to announce the release of Old Gods; the brand-new studio album from the US band, Valley of the Sun.

Formed in Cincinnati, OH in 2010, the band instantly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with, thanks to two self-released EPs; the kind that never seem to go unnoticed/unheard for long. Often compared to the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Alice in Chains and Badmotorfinger-era Soundgarden –the latter due in no small part to singer Ryan Ferrier’s exemplary vocal range – listeners are treated to a sound that runs the gamut of blues, hard rock, grunge and heavy metal, with big riffs, fuzzed out hooks and deep bass grooves.

For the band, whose last release came in 2016 with the impressive Volume Rock, new album Old Gods is a new and exciting concoction expertly packaged and delivered with a raw and unbridled power whether listened to via stage or speaker. In this incarnation, incorporating heady moments of psychedelia and assuming a form unlike anything the band has ever attempted before.

“To me, Old Gods is a meditation on who I once was, who I am now, and who I’d like to become,” explains guitarist/vocalist Ryan Ferrier.

“We try to evolve with each album,” adds drummer Aaron Boyer. “On Old Gods we added some heavier elements, darker tones, and a touch of psychedelia. We tried some things on this record that we’ve never done before and that made it a lot of fun to make.”

The album comes in CD digipack as well as three different vinyl versions; Black LP Gatefold incl poster and sticker , Transperant Green LP Gatefold incl poster and sticker, Splatter LP Gatefold incl two posters and a sticker. The Splatter version will only be sold through Fuzzorama’s own webstore as well as by the band at live shows.

OUT NOW
Volume Rock. Of all the words in the English language that could be drawn upon to illustrate the
sheer sound and substance of Cincinnati’s Valley Of The Sun, you’d be hard pressed to find two
better. Picking up directly where they left off on last year’s Electric Talons Of The Thunderhawk, the
Queen City rockers are back in 2016 with a brand new album on Sweden’s formidable Fuzzorama
Records.

Set for release on 29th April, Volume Rock is the culmination of the band’s determination and ability
to not only write and record great rock songs, but also their drive and ambition to become one of the
best bands to emerge from the underground. As The Obelisk proclaimed as early as 2011, “There’s
no question that Valley Of The Sun are placing themselves at the forefront of the new generation of
American heavy rock.”
