Valient Thorr Announce Recording Plans

Venusian rockers and occasional Earth dwellers VALIENT THORR will begin working on a new album at the start of 2008.

The band will spend January in Southern California writing and demoing new material before heading to Seattle to record with Jack Endino (NIRVANA, SOUNDGARDEN, MUDHONEY, HIGH ON FIRE) at Studio Litho and Soundhouse Recording in February. This new album and follow up to their 2006 release, Legend Of The World, will be released in summer 2008.

Valient Himself, lead singer of the group, said this about working with Endino, “Man, we're psyched to begin working with Jack on the new album. Not only because of his discography, but after meeting him out on the Volcom Tour, I realized he was just as big of a record obsessive as I was.”

Valient Thorr and Endino met and toured together earlier this year on the Volcom Tour where Endino was playing guitar in the group KANDI CODED.

Valient Himself goes on to say, “Check out his [Endino’s] meticulously detailed website, we could geek out on it for hours about hard to find badass tunes. The dude knows his sh*t back to front. This record is going to be over the top.”

Valient Thorr will be road testing some new songs - 'Mask Of Sanity', 'Infinite Lives', and '1000 Winters In a Row' - this month, beginning tonight when they join up for a two-week tour with THE SWORD and BLACK COBRA.
