The Skinny: Death Valley Driver have been bulldozing their red mud-fueled swamp metal since 2008 and like their namesake, the band will leave you with a sore neck and a few bruises. Since their inception they’ve shared the stage with Canadian rockers White Cowbell Oklahoma, Neuraxis, Fuck the Facts as well as East Coast heavyweights Iron Giant, The Motorleague, Black Moor and Orchid’s Curse.

With the upcoming release of their album Choke The River, Death Valley Driver will ooze a toxic stew of swamp metal with a touch of blue collar Maritime rock and roll.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
