Rock and metal meet by the banks of a sludgey swamp. They fall in love and for a while everything is wonderful. But then one day doom descends – rock walks out on metal without warning. Metal gets the blues and drinks himself to death. The end.
Andrew, Joey and Royce knew each other through playing shows together in their previous bands Thumb, iNFeCTeD and Downer. They remained friends after those bands folded and years later The Devil was born.
We have supported Clutch (USA), Monster Magnet (USA), Mondo Generator (USA), Fu Manchu (USA), Truckfighters (Sweden), Winnebago Deal (UK), Shihad (NZ), Black Cobra (USA), Dead Meadow (USA), Pink Mounatintops (Canada) and Cough (USA).
Releasing our debut full length album and touring it nationally. Playing the Devil's Kitchen Festival at Cherry Bar in AC/DC Lane. Playing alongside and hanging out with Nick Oliveri - Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age being two of our favourite bands and biggest influences. Same with Clutch - always a big thrill to share the stage with artists we respect.
About to release our new EP 'Ugly Creatures' and looking for a new drummer as Royce is departing the band after the launch in June.
