Ick The Switch


On tour with Killing Joke and new album out, now there’s a video too

NorCal industrial noiseniks, DEATH VALLEY HIGH’s new album, ‘CVLT [AS FVK]’ was released last Friday 4th November via minusHEAD Records.  Today sees a new video for ‘Ick Switch’ premiere via their YouTube channel

Directed by Brian Cox of Flarelight Films, the video for ‘Ick Switch’ is “a ‘prequel’ of sorts to our first single, ‘Warm Bodies,’” tells DVH’s frontman Reyka Osburn.  That video (https://youtu.be/zpEUeOCCjAQ) is a NSFW romp that features a girl desperately fleeing zombies, while the clip for ‘Ick Switch’ combines live-action footage of DEATH VALLEY HIGH with grainy images of butchery and body parts.

Since the release of 2013’s ‘Positive Euth’ album, DEATH VALLEY HIGH have logged over two years on the road, touring alongside everybody from Mindless Self Indulgence and ††† (Crosses) to Filter and Orgy.  Right now they’re on tour in Europe with KILLING JOKE.
Reyka says, “It’s an honour and thrill to be chosen as opener for a legendary act like Killing Joke.  I can’t count the hours I’ve spent learning Geordie’s syncopated guitar riffs.  You can bet my whereabouts after our sets are going to be front and centre, singing along to all of their hits.”
