Deap Vally has become a much talked-about band in the blogosphere and landed several songs on “The Vampire Diaries” series. The pair signed with Cherrytree/Communion/Interscope/Island and have been on the road since July touring England, Europe and Asia with established bands like The Vaccines and Muse and most recently Mumford & Sons, with only a handful of singles released so far. “It’s fun to tour overseas, but you ache for your heartland,” says Edwards. The two are looking forward to traveling across North America this spring with dates that include Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Lollapalooza and The Bowery Ballroom in New York City.
“My favorite way to discover new music is at festivals,” says Troy. “Festivals are like rock ’n’ roll summer camp backstage,” adds Edwards. “It’s like the brotherhood and sisterhood of nomadic musicians.”

They also recently started hosting a radio show through Cherrytree Radio called “Vallymania” featuring rock tracks of their choice. Edwards pulls double duty, still performing with The Pity Party. They seem to be managing it all, conducting this interview on speakerphone while driving to the accompanying photo shoot.
