Iggy Pop and Queens of the Stone Age frontman, Josh Homme have announced that they will screen their American Valhalla documentary online next week, doing their bit in encouraging others to stay at home during the coronavirus crisis.

American Valhalla documents the collaboration between Pop and Homme, along with Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age) and drummer Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), and recording of Iggy’s 17th studio album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression.

In a post shared on his Instagram, Iggy told fans: “We are very dedicated to make sure you stay at home. Therefore we have treat for you on Monday. One and only screening of American Valhalla!”

Iggy added: “We are excited that Eagle Rock decided to share their treasure and we all will have a chance to relive #PostPopDepression.” See the post below.


A description on the documentary’s official website says of American Valhalla: “The film takes you on a journey from the conception of this musical partnership and the first demos recorded in Californian desert by – what became – the Post Pop Depression band that included Dean Fertita (QOTSA) and drummer Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), and onto the release of the album, proceeded by a sold-out American and European Tour that featured the epic performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

“American Valhalla is a crown jewel of this once-in-a-life-time kind of a project. Featuring stunning cinematography, insightful interviews and access all areas footage, the film reveals just what is means to know that if you risk nothing, you gain nothing, no matter who you are.”

Set to be screened on YouTube on Monday (March 30) at 8pm GMT, which is 7am tomorrow morning (Tuesday, March 31st) for everyone here in Australia. To make sure you don’t miss out on waking up to the ferocious snarl of Iggy Pop, subscribe for a reminder here:
