High above L.A. with Death Valley Girls and Jennifer Herrema

Death Valley Girls are Bonnie, Rachel, Laura and Larry. Tommy is the studio dog :) They are all super easy going laid back types, so getting them in Volcom swag was a breeze. The sun was bright and hot but the beer was cold and we moved forward with the shoot like "pros". They played I shot. They drank I shot. Tommy ran around as if he were a big dog, but he probably only weighs 5 pounds. Larry decorated the walls with old girl gang posters and I played with the flash and shutter speeds while the girls organized their gear to start the jam. It was totally fun. I got my own private show and a few good pics for the road. The view was incredible…we were totally high above Los Angeles. - Jennifer Herrema Bonnie and Rachel get ready to rock.

"Want to listen to ‘Swallowed By The Mist’, written and recorded by ((sounder)), featuring Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy? There are two ways, both winners. You can watch the film it was exclusively written for, Volcom’s epic feature True to This, and sway as the smooth sounds compliment the sublime cinematography and board riding artistry on showcase. Or, you can listen to it on your record player at home. But how? By tearing out the super high-tech vinyl flexi disk inserted into Monster Children #42! So cool, right? The flexi only snuck into so many of #42, so you can hit the lottery at select retailers, or receive a guaranteed loaded copy from the MC USA store by chicking here. News just in, there’s actually a third way you can hear the song. If you’re a lazy sob, you can listen here, and while it’ll still sound every bit as beautiful, it won’t be as much of an adventure. We hit up Mike Aho of ((sounder)) and Director of Volcom’s ‘True To This’ to ask him about the song and film. How did the song come about? Was it created specifically for the film and with the visuals it was accompanying in mind? I had kind of been writing some of the lyrics before making the film, but after we shot the water ramp footage, I thought it would be a great place in the movie for an introspective song about a person’s desire to be free… Which is kind of where the song was headed.  So as I was beginning to work on True To This, I thought it would be cool to write it more specifically for that scene, so I think a lot of the lyrics and tone was influenced heavily by the footage. What was it like having Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy on the track? Did you always have him in mind to feature on the track? It was amazing. I’ve worked with him on other..." - (Read The Whole Interview on!)
