A description on the documentary’s official website says of American Valhalla: “The film takes you on a journey from the conception of this musical partnership and the first demos recorded in Californian desert by – what became – the Post Pop Depression band that included Dean Fertita (QOTSA) and drummer Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), and onto the release of the album, proceeded by a sold-out American and European Tour that featured the epic performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
“American Valhalla is a crown jewel of this once-in-a-life-time kind of a project. Featuring stunning cinematography, insightful interviews and access all areas footage, the film reveals just what is means to know that if you risk nothing, you gain nothing, no matter who you are.”
American Valhalla is available to buy on DVD here.
Earlier this month, Iggy Pop has shared a minimal new video for his track ‘We Are The People’, which originally appeared on last year’s album ‘Free’.
The track makes use of words from a poem written in 1970 by the late Lou Reed, and the video was shared on what would have been his 78th birthday.
