MORE ABOUT THE TOUR AND ARTIST:
“With fervourish post-Kyuss-on-coke cool, The Devil Rides Out have it all. Sound, style and silhouette blend with bad-ass pomp and balls-out flair to match.” Xpress Magazine
Combining the sexy big groove heaviness of stoner rock with the dirty lowbrow swagger of garage blues, Western Australia’s THE DEVIL RIDES OUT have established themselves as “Perth’s premier exponents of balls’n’all rock’n’roll grit’n’grime” (Drum) with their trinity of EPs; Volume I, II and III. On the back of the Volumes, the band have supported Nick (QOTSA/Kyuss) Oliveri’s MONDO GENERATOR (USA), WINNEBAGO DEAL (UK), MONSTER MAGNET (USA), SHIHAD (NZ) and CLUTCH (USA).
“Soulful and blues-colored rock ’n’ roll... Imagine a band that is the sum of ZZ Top, AC/DC, Led Zep, Miller High Life, sunshine, sideburns, and convertibles and you will come pretty close to physically defining The Devil Rides Out.” StonerRock.com
In May 2009 The Devil Rides Out won the WAMi (West Australian Music Industry) Award for ‘Best Hard Rock Artist’ in memorable fashion, with frontman Joey K and ceremony host Tex Perkins sharing a tender moment of rock’n’roll manlove. The band re-entered the studio in December 2009 to lay down their debut album with Alan Smith at Bergerk Studios. Internationally focused Australian label Impedance Records - home to Nick Oliveri, Mondo Generator and The New Christs amongst others - liked what they heard emanating from the studio and promptly signed them. The resulting album The Heart & The Crown charts the sound of a band coming of age, displaying both a musical breadth and lyrical depth previously only hinted at on the Volume EPs, whilst still retaining the bands trademark venom, grit and pitch black sense of humour.
“The Devil Rides Out sure knows how to rock... they dole out enormously catchy doses of rollicking groove-laden sludge.” Pyromusic.net
Renown in their home town for blistering live sets, The Devil is now set to take their high-octane show on the road and wake the rest of the country up to this ferocious rock monster from west of the desert..
