Death Valley Driver Recording New EP "Carnivore's Oath"

Prince Edward Island's Death Valley Driver will be heading to Adam Gallant Studios this weekend to begin work on an upcoming EP entitled “Carnivore’s Oath.”

The four-song effort will be produced by Paper Lions guitarist and multiple award nominee Colin Buchanan. No stranger to the producer’s chair, Buchanan has worked with PEI bands such as North Lakes, Colour Code, as well as his own band. This will be his first foray into a heavier genre – a challenge he looks forward to accepting.

"When Dan first sent me a message about producing I was totally taken off guard," commented vocalist Dan Hodgson. "I've often thought of myself as versatile and have always wanted to work in different genres but Metal was definitely far from my comfort zone. But after I met with the guys and saw them play live I began to understand where I could work within their dynamic and sound. It seem like a weird collision of worlds on paper but in the end it's all just music. And it works.”

The band is equally excited for the opportunity to work with Buchanan and shared this statement: “For this EP, we really wanted to get out of our comfort zone, and we felt Colin was the right person to help us achieve that. He has an incredible ear and his input during pre-production has been amazing. Expect some new sounds from us this time around – although no less heavy. Colin is an accomplished songwriter, guitarist and vocalist, so we knew going in he could make our band the best we could be. He’s really made us up our game."

You can also catch the band live:
