Press Release – Trigger Marketing
DEVILSKIN today announce a killer line up for their October ONWARD tour. New Zealand band LIKE A STORM will be special guests alongside Napier band BLACK SMOKE TRIGGER who will open the shows this October.
LIKE A STORM are the highest charting New Zealand hard rock band in American radio history. Both of LIKE A STORM’S two studio albums, “Catacombs” and “Awaken the Fire”, debuted in the Billboard 200. The New Zealand group shovel raw emotion into an engine of airtight polyrhythmic riffage, cinematic electronics, and primal didgeridoo.
“We were so stoked and honoured when DEVILSKIN invited us to join them for their epic 10-year Anniversary Tour of New Zealand,” says Kent Brooks, “As DEVILSKIN have become synonymous with the very forefront of Kiwi heavy music. Over the years we’ve become good mates with the band, hanging out with them at Festivals like Download UK. They’re such great people and a killer, world-class live act! We’ve seen how insane their live shows are back home and can’t wait to be a part of it! We’ve toured all around the world twice this year sharing the stage with Godsmack, Alter Bridge, Disturbed, Halestorm, Guns n Roses but in a way we’re most excited about coming home! These shows are going to be off the hook!”
“Like A Storm are one of the hardest working bands out there, they are always touring, and they’ve been ripping up stages, and the charts, in the US and all around the world.” DEVILSKIN spokesman Paul Martin says. “We’ve become good friends with the guys, catching up with them now and again on the road and we are really happy they’ll be joining our tenth birthday celebration, the ONWARD tour. A real class act and wonderful humans who are owning it on the big stages, they’ve been itching to come back to their homeland to play and we know they’ll put on a hell of a show.”
Opening act BLACK SMOKE TRIGGER take influence from legendary acts such as Alice in Chains and Guns n’ Roses and mixing in their own style – BLACK SMOKE TRIGGER has a fresh and hard-hitting, hard rock sound. Determined to make an impact from the beginning, BLACK SMOKE TRIGGER has been working with producer Michael Wagener on their first EP recorded in Nashville, USA. Michael has been credited with 100 Million sales and responsible for the incredible sound of bands such as Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row and Alice Cooper.
“We are really excited to have Black Smoke Trigger opening the shows on this tour. Charlie and the guys have a fantastic work ethic, total commitment to their music and a ton of determination. They won’t be holding back at all, they’ve just got in from Nashville and they’re ready to rip it up. This tour is going to be one big party and we know the crowd are going to get an absolutely awesome night out at every single show.” DEVILSKIN band member Paul Martin states.
