Valhalla Lights … are Ange Saul (vocals), George Christie (guitar), Brent “Badger” Crysell (bass), and Deon Driver (drums). They are set to release their debut album My Gracious Highway April 6th in North America.
You can watch the animated video for the first single from the album Hammer The Witch on YouTube here.
George, Brent and Deon have been playing together for 17 years and were the backbone of legendary Australian stoner rock band FORT which appeared on the main stage of Splendor in the Grass festival where they played to 10,000 people, did national tours with Clutch (2x tours), Kyuss Lives, Fu Manchu, Brant Bjork, Grinspoon, Nebula and shows with Monster Magnet, Helmet, the Black Keys, COG, Shihad (NZ), Tumbleweed, and The Hard Ons.
Joining the powerhouse trio is vocalist Ange Saul who has played numerous festivals across the globe with her previous band The Black Lullaby. Since Ange joined Valhalla Lights, they have recently played shows with Sebastian Bach from Skid Row and Gilby Clarke from Guns N’ Roses.
