Fresh from the Soundhouse Recording studios in Seattle; Chapel Hill, North Carolina rockers VALIENT THORR have posted the first track, "Doublecrossed", from the recording sessions for the band's as-yet-untitled new album, tentatively due out this fall. Having once again teamed up with Jack Endino, the legendary producer of seminal albums by NIRVANA, SOUNDGARDEN and MUDHONEY, the band choose "Doublecrossed" as the first of twelve new recordings to mix and do a quick master on and release to the world for free via the group's official web site.
Last weekend marked the start of the 2010 Volcom Tour, which sees VALIENT THORR supporting MASTODON, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and BARONESS.
VALIENT THORR's last album, "Immortalizer", was released in June 2008 via Volcom Entertainment.
