2023 finds Deap Vally reclaiming its legacy anew – even as the band concludes the journey it began just over a decade ago. Not long after a chance meeting in a knitting class, the duo of Julie Edwards (drums and vocals) and Lindsey Troy (guitar and vocals) unleashed Deap Vally’s first release in 2012, followed by  three albums of powerful, idiosyncratic, maximally minimalist rock that played by their own rules.  That was in addition to the L.A.-based group’s groundbreaking collaborations spanning the likes of Peaches, KT Tunstall, Jamie Hince and Soko, even an entire joint album recorded with Flaming Lips, all while sharing stages with Blondie, Garbage, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Queens of the Stone Age, among other notables. Today, Edwards and Troy feel that the cycle of recording and touring is no longer compatible with their desire to live their lives, and are embarking on a final tour: “we’re just going to go to play as many places as we can and say farewell to everyone” because “we just felt it would be fitting to go out with a bang, not a whimper.” Dully noted!
