Metalcore supergroup Devil You Know, which boasts former Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones and current All Shall Perish shredder Francesco Artusato within its ranks have been hard at work writing new tunes for their sophomore album, and they'll be entering the studio in early June to record the follow-up to last year's excellent The Beauty of Destruction. They've enlisted renowned producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira, Killer Be Killed) to produce the effort and plan on releasing it later in the year via Nuclear Blast Records. After a year of relentless touring alongside bands such as Black Label Society and Machine Head, Devil You Know are settling into their skin as a new band, and Howard Jones is stoked for their new record:
Hey everyone, so we are all really excited as 2015 is going to be a huge year for DYK. I think spending quality time together sweating on stage and holding hands in vans, buses, planes, boats, trains and submarines has helped us become a true unit, and it's definitely showing in the new tunes. Josh Wilbur is super talented and he has a proven history of bringing out the best in bands, so we are excited to say the least. Now it's time to stop showering and shaving so we can transform back into metal mode and get to work! More news to follow in the coming weeks people… It's on.
As if a new album wasn't already enough, Devil You Know has also teamed up with All In Merchandise to launch a new merch store featuring all new designs, the best of which by far are the two hilarious Howard Jones-themed t-shirts. It was only a matter of time before he got his own clothing line, and by God, it's happening. Check the shirts out here. And get stoked for their new record!
