Having stunned Australian crowds on tours with HALESTORM and SLASH Ft. Miles Kennedy and the Conspirators and appearing on Download Australian in 2019 DEVILSKIN are set to release their new album RED.
RED is the universal colour of passion, vitality, blood, danger, romance, anger, horror and love; everything evocative. Of all the colours, RED is a warning and a statement.
Recorded at Roundhead Studios Auckland mid-2019 with the award-winning team of producer Greg Haver, and engineer/mixer Simon Gooding; this is the bands most complex, complete and confident collection of songs yet.
RED will be released worldwide Friday April 3rd on all formats across all platforms, including a red vinyl, black vinyl, CD and a limited-edition box set.
The New Zealand four piece – also caught the eye of legendary international booking agent Steve Strange from X-Ray Touring (Alice In Chains, Machine Head, Rob Zombie, Eminem).
The response to the three singles so far from the new album has been nothing short of immense. Latest single CORRODE – released in January – has already amassed over 129,000 views on YouTube, gained radio airplay rotation on notable stations such as Kerrang, Rebel FM and Primordial radio and was selected for Spotify’s ‘Rock Out.’ playlist, further proof that RED is hotly anticipated.
To say that we are excited for people to hear these songs is an understatement” remarks bassist Paul Martin. “We can all say, quite honestly, that we have put our very best into this album, the songs, the production and the entire presentation, everything is how we wanted it, sincere. Bringing these songs to life in the studio was intense, but extremely satisfying. I think we have surpassed our own expectations and now it’s up to our friends to climb inside this album and explore this beast that we have built.”
DEVILSKIN have garnered a formidable reputation and a solid fan-base worldwide from their relentless touring schedule. A swathe of brilliant live reviews from Europe to USA to Australia are testament to the groundswell of support for this hard-working and focused New Zealand act.
RED starts with a sonic throat punch titled Do You See Birds and promises to enthral the listener with a tour-de-force of emotions and moods. From the epic and eerie Blood & Bone, the caged rage of Same Life, the visceral impact of The Victor, to the poignant beauty of Sweet Release, the resplendent grandeur of Bright Lights, the swagger of Be Like The River and the manic fury of Everybody’s High But Me. DEVILSKIN have long been noted for their emotive song-writing and ability to touch peoples’ hearts, and on RED they have bared their soul with their finest performance yet.
