The Devil Rides Out announce national tour

The Devil Rides Out announce The Heart & The Crown national tour.
Tour Dates: 
12/06/2010 - 27/06/2010

Combining the heavy big groove fuzz 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 Oliveri’s (QOTSA/Kyuss) Mondo Generator (USA), Winnebago Deal (UK), Monster Magnet (USA), Shihad (NZ) and Clutch (USA).

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 Devil has been nominated again in 2010 and this year's host The Doctor should be warned.

The band re-entered the studio in December 2009 to lay down their debut album with Alan Smith at Bergerk. Impedance Records - the Australian based home to Nick Oliveri, Mondo Generator and The Sword 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.

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...
