Finally, we get to hear what former Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones' new band sounds like, and SPOILER…it sounds fucking awesome!
Devil You Know have launched an official Facebook page today featuring a demo track for streaming called "Shut It Down."
SiriusXM subscribers will notice the song sounds familiar, as it has been playing all over Liquid Metal, including my show, for the last two months. When the song first appeared in my playlist, I had no idea who the band was but as soon as the vocals kicked in, there was no way to mistake Howard Jones' signature yell.
The Devil You Know have also announced they signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the new NB offshoot fronted by former Roadrunner A&R head honcho, Monte Conner. Conner has been busy with signings lately, nabbing Machine Head and the new all-star group from Max Cavalera, Greg Puciato and Troy Sanders, Killer Be Killed.
The band promises a new album in early 2014. We're waiting, Howard!
