The Devil You Know
The raw rock power of Devilskin rolls back into town in October (7th), with the hard-charging Kiwis taking their rip-roaring live show on the road throughout New Zealand after an already busy year of touring.
Just back from a tour of the UK, the 4-piece have only confirmed their reputation as a must-catch live act, and this new gig will be hotly anticipated after their last NZ tour earlier year saw enthusiastic rock fans pouring into venues all around the country. The Hamilton alt-metal band, consisting of Julie Skulander on vocals, red-bearded axe-wielders Nail and Paul Martin, and Paul’s son Nic on drums, have readily won fans not only here but overseas, playing sold-out gigs and Ireland, and putting in an appearance in June at Britain’s most popular rock and metal festival, the three-day Download Festival in Leicestershire.
But a New Zealand tour’s the real deal, says the band: “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time overseas, and the shows and the crowds have been amazing, but we have missed playing to our dear friends here in New Zealand. We're really excited to hit the road again and catch up with our good mates, see your pretty faces and melt them off!” Those looking for a good face-melting can expect to get a solid blast from the quartet’s sophomore (November 2016) album Be Like The River, as well as a few new tunes and surprises they’ve been working on as well. Start those finger exercises now; you won’t want to cramp up when you’re throwing up the horns.
