DEVIL YOU KNOW will kick off their first-ever North American headlining tour on April 15th in Fresno, CA. The tour, dubbed the “Make America Metal Again” (see the Donald Trump approved tour ad-mat attached), will also feature the band ONI as direct support. Either see below or head over to https://www.facebook.com/Devilyouknowofficial for all tour dates and additional information.
DEVIL YOU KNOW have also just launched a brand-new, live performance music video for “Consume The Damned,” which features all footage from the band’s 2015 European fall tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach, so check it out now via the video player below.
Francesco Artusato (guitars) states: “We are very excited to get on the road with the band ONI for our headliner tour. I got to meet the guys in this band a few months ago when I was asked to do a guest solo for their record. That’s when I realized the incredible talent each one of them has. Extremely skilled musicians and the songs are sick. It’s a very cool team of people, including Josh Wilbur who produced their album (and our last record as well. He’s the best!). Their record sounds really cool and I can’t wait to see them perform it live. It’s going to be a very fun tour for all of us!
“This is also our very first official headlining North American tour of our band’s career and we are looking forward to performing a lot of new material from They Bleed Red, which has yet to be ever played live. We are also offering VIP ticketing packages at each show, where for only $50 you get a guaranteed group photo with the band, as many autographed items as you like and a free t-shirt of your choice from our merch booth. They are on-sale now at the link below. Meet and greets will be at 6PM sharp each day.
“This tour is going be rad! We can’t wait to bring Metal back to America again and kick ass across the States, says Jake Oni, lead singer and founder of the band ONI. Jake went onto say “We were thrilled that our friends in DYK asked us to do the ‘Make America Metal Again’ US tour. Since my band is like a combination of ‘Dream Theater meets Slipknot’ with metal-pounding riffs played by passionate, really talented musicians, it’s the perfect complement to a night of Metal Madness. Our new single “Eternal Recurrence,” is available for streaming now at the link below, so please check it out and we look forward to meeting you all in person this spring across the U.S.”
ONI wants to make every metal minute matter, so they will be donating their merchandise proceeds to the YouRock Foundation.
Howard Jones (vocals), Francesco Artusato (guitars), John Sankey (drums), and Ryan Wombacher (bass/backing vocals) deliver a dense monstrosity of technical prowess and angst-ridden passion. A deep interpersonal understanding and an evolving camaraderie set the stage for the unique confidence behind They Bleed Red, the band’s ferocious follow-up which extinguishes any so-called “sophomore slump” without mercy. It’s the sound of primal bloodlust. Produced by Josh Wilbur (Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Killer Be Killed), They Bleed Red is a breakneck paced trip through DEVIL YOU KNOW’s broken psyche, struggles with anxiety, and ultimate triumph against adversity, all laid upon a foundation of high-level artistic achievement and vitriolic full throttle heavy metal fury.
