DEATH VALLEY HIGH will be releasing their new EP, 'Duel,' on August 23 via Minus Head Records! While the first half of the record features covers, the latter half is an offering of intense remixes, lending to the record's name. Each song on 'Duel' features a special guest, including Chino Moreno (Deftones), Spirit in the Room, Chris Connelly, and more. The full track-list, special guest credits, and album art can be found below.

The band comments regarding 'Duel:' "'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."

'Duel' Track List:

"Here Comes the Rain" (Death Valley High Vs. Chris Connelly)
"Cavity - First Communion" (Death Valley High Vs. Chino Moreno)
"Cruel Summer" (Death Valley High Vs. Hanin Elias)
"The Crab Song" (Death Valley High Vs. Rykarda Parasol)
"Jump In The Fire" (Death Valley High Vs. Spirit in the Room)
"SUNSHINE CLEANERS" (Death Valley High Vs. Paul Wiley remix)
"MERCI" (Death Valley High Vs. sondottir remix)
"The Present" (Death Valley High Vs. Hounds remix)

Swerving between the sarcastic and the saccharine, horror obsessed provocateurs DEATH VALLEY HIGH deliver doom pop and death disco of the highest order. Outburn heralded them as the "New Face of Goth Rock," while UK tastemaker Kerrang! advised fans of Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails to take note. But where most macabre music-makers craft anthems for the grave, DEATH VALLEY HIGH make songs to wake the dead. These guys don't dwell in melancholy; this is a funeral procession to dance to. Universal monsters, Hammer films, and haunted houses collide within their sonic psyche, earning them coveted spots on tours with likeminded rabble-rousers like Killing Joke, Combichrist, Crosses, Powerman 5000, and Orgy. DEATH VALLEY HIGH turns convention on its head, with unapologetic distaste for conformity and a tongue-in-cheek whimsy. DEATH VALLEY HIGH is unmistakably important, conjuring New Romantic majesty for the modern age.
