Device announce self-titled debut album
Device has announced the release of its self-titled debut album on April 9, 2013 via Warner Bros Records. Modern hard rock icon David Draiman of Disturbed co-wrote and recorded the album with Geno Lenardo [formerly of Filter].
“It’s not metal”, Draiman says. “It’s influenced by early Industrial rock (i.e. Nine Inch Nails/Ministry) and has a dark electronic vibe. At the same time, these are big, anthemic, and intensely melodic songs. It’s futuristic rock.”
Upon finishing the writing and recording process, Draiman enlisted Evanescence drummer Will Hunt, and Dope and Rock of Ages guitarist Virus; the three comprise the touring incarnation of Device.
The album features guest artists like Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine), Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Black Country Communion), M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) and Lizzy Hale from Halestorm. First single, “”Vilify”” goes to radio February 19th.
Tour dates to be announced soon.
