The band's latest album, Immortalizer is set for release June 17 on Volcom Entertainment. The disc was recorded in Seattle with veteran producer Jack Endino, who, in addition to helping Valient Thorr shape their signature sound of punk, heavyweight grooves and a classic rock vibe, has worked with Nirvana, Soundgarden and Hot Hot Heat.
Merchandise to offset medical expenses for Valient Himself and his father is available at the band's web site, ValientThorr.com.
The site promises that proceeds from a shirt will "go directly to the mounting medical costs of kidney donation from Valient Himself to his earthly father. Remember, you aren't just buying a shirt, you are giving a gift and the shirt represents that."
