Valhalla Lights releases My Gracious Highway
BYRON BAY rockers Valhalla Lights have announced their new album, My Gracious Highway.
The band has recorded 13 tracks and they are planning to release one song per month online for 12 months, plus one song on the last day of the year.
The first song, Rise Above, will be out tomorrow to mark the beginning of their music year.
The full album in CD format will be released at the end of the year.
The band's drummer, Deon Diver, said they wanted to have a different approach to releasing this album.
"(Have you) ever been in a space of going inwards, complete introspection and getting lost in deeper conversations of life?" he asked.
"(Have you ever been in a space) about facing all your demons head on and in a way that leaves you naked with vulnerability, uncomfortable and pushing the realms of darkness in order to reach the other side, a side where life feels lighter and free from adversity? Where you rise above your demons?
"Well that's Rise Above; it's a song that's heavy. So heavy, in fact, that it reflects the heaviness of its themes in its sonic delivery."
Valhalla Lights are returning to Sydney for a live show at Frankie's Pizza this Sunday accompanied by rock bands Dead City Ruins, The Brokeback Mtn Boys, Archaic Revival, Screaming Eagles and Black Rheno.
