Valleys Reveals “Experiment One: Asylum” Album Details

Modern metal group Valleys is set to release debut full-length concept album, “Experiment One: Asylum,” on February 12th, 2016 with the album following main character Asylum in a battle against multiple personality disorder.

“Experiment One: Asylum” was recorded during the summer and fall of 2015 and is produced by Paul Barton of 415 Recording, with mixing and mastering duties handled by Todd Borland of Borland Studios.

Vocalist Jayson Mitchell comments: “We wrote this album as a concept on Multiple Personality Disorder because we understand how devastating this disease can be on the individual and his/her family. We wrote these lyrics and music as a way of hope for the people diagnosed with this disease. We want them to hear the record and hear the story of Asylum, the main character, and see that if he can fight the disease, anyone can.”

Valleys Releases “The Death Of Me” Music Video

Valleys is set to release debut full-length concept album, “Experiment One: Asylum,” on February 12th, 2016.

The album illustrates the main character, Asylum, in his tumultuous fight with multiple personality disorder. Each track depicts Asylum’s returning struggle with a different personality.

Last month, Valleys introduced Asylum to the world via the rack “Finding Solace” (still streaming here), which depicted the character’s struggle with overcoming his disorder. But how does the story begin?

Today Valleys reveals a new short film/music video for the track “The Death of Me,” which details the beginning of Asylum’s decent into madness with the tragic death of his wife and unborn child by the hand of a home intruder.

“This track acts like a prequel to the entire story of this record, which is pretty ironic since this is the last song on the album,” states guitarist Brandon Scurlark. “The instrumentals follow the rise and fall of Asylum throughout the track. The more melodic parts represent the ups and the good times, where the heavier chaotic parts and as well as the breakdown represent the fall of Asylum and his succumbing to the disease.”

Vocalist Jayson Mitchell adds, “We focused the video around the Asylum family and kept the camera away from us in the band. With us staying in the background, it gave the image of us being the different personalities, waiting to take over almost like a foreshadowing or a dream.”

The entire video was filmed by Jaiden Frost of Jaiden Frost Presents over the course of just 15 hours.

This track is about Asylum fighting to overcome his disease. It’s a track that we as a band feel to be one of the strongest songs we have in our discography.”
