Death Valley Girls Release Video For New Single Starring Iggy Pop

Thursday, 16 August 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Who wouldn’t want to watch Iggy Pop munching on a hamburger?

Disaster (Is What We’re After) is the latest riff-driven single from Death Valley Girls, and its video features just that. Fierce and guitar-heavy with a crazy horn section at the end, it’s the first track to emerge from their new album, ‘Darkness Rains’, which gets a release on October 5.

Iggy Pop, inspired by the famous Andy Warhol short film, lends a hand by eating said hamburger for four minutes while listening to the band. Of the video, directed by Kansas Bowling and shot on 16mm film, they said:

“We’re strong believers in opti-mysticism and connecting with people through rock n’ roll,” Death Valley Girls say of the cosmically fitting union of Iggy Pop starring in their new video. “Having Iggy dig our music was more than amazing for us. When Kansas told us she had a dream about recreating the ‘Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger’ short film but with Iggy starring for our music video, we were cautiously excited about the possibility. Next thing we know we’re in Miami with Iggy himself, and a rock n’ roll dream became reality!”
