THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Marriage is the third album from the Los Angeles duo of Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, and the full-length followup to Deap Lips, their musical hookup with Flaming Lips. Deap Lips ignited the band’s passion for collaboration, a passion that has continued through recent EPs that included contributions from Peaches, KT Tunstall, Jennie Vee (Eagles of Death Metal), Jamie Hince (The Kills), Savages, Warpaint and more. From these incredible collaborative projects, the seeds of Marriage were sown.

“Being in a band is like being in a marriage: Sometimes it’s magical, sometimes it’s unbearably challenging,” Deap Vally say. “To reinvigorate that marriage we’ve made album three a genre-bending experiment with new collaborators and instrumentation that push the limits of what has previously defined us. Marriage is our musical Rumspringa, if you will. We’re breaking free of the rigid creative constraints within which we previously existed (two members, two instruments, two voices). Writing with the calibre of musicians that we did on this record … was an unforgettable experience, and we’re so happy to have the result of our creative rebirth eternalised in Marriage.”
