Broken Road Music to release Devilstrip’s label-debut album Gravitate

Broken Road Music to release Devilstrip’s label-debut album Gravitate

US melodic hard-rock outfit Devilstrip joins forces with Broken Road Music for their sophomore offering, “Gravitate”. The album, set for a March 16th release, builds upon their one of a kind sound crafted on the band’s debut, Rise.

“We pushed ourselves and our music a lot harder this time,” states Graig Lindgren (bass).

“This album really elevates Devilstrip higher than we even thought when they originally joined Broken Road Music in 2017, what they have presented us is a fantastic follow up to their debut which will relate to so many people. It really is a superb album and should be heard by the masses” - James Hart (Broken Road Music)

Lyrically, the trio are not one’s to shy away from sensitive topics - violence, extremism, addiction and redemption, as well as some of the time-honored rock and roll muses.

“This record has a lot of dirt under it’s fingernails,” according to drummer Jimmy Gray.
The live setting is where this band truly shines, and lead vocalist / guitarist Marc Wasmund is eager to get back on stage with new material in tow: “Our music is raw, emotional and authentic as hell.”

The band have previously played shows with some stellar names in the music industry and will look to continue that trend into 2018 and beyond.

Devilstrip hope to bring their brand of rust-belt hard rock to the UK & Europe as soon as this summer.

Gravitate, featuring Skin, Snakebite, Silent and the eponymous track will be available 16/3/18 on all digital platforms and at www.brokenroadrecords.com

THE DEAD DAISIES announce new album releasing April 6th, 2018, World Tour Dates and Band Member Addition!

“BURN IT DOWN” is a muscular tour-de-force, a tornado of pounding drums, pulverizing bass, screaming guitars and in-your-face raw vocals. Evoking the best of 70s Rock, with moments of Birmingham’s finest, blended with the early works of Boston’s best, “Burn It Down” will do just that: Burn down everything in its path until there is nothing left standing.

Recorded in Nashville with Marti Frederiksen at the helm, the band finished their 4th studio album “Burn It Down” in December, with Anthony Focx once again handling the mix and mastering legend Howie Weinberg adding his magic.

John Corabi about the new record:
“I’m extremely excited about our new record “BURN IT DOWN”! It was a pleasure to once again work with Marti Frederiksen and the band on what I believe is the next great step in The Dead Daisies journey. This is a balls-out old school rock record!!! Enjoy it, and see you all on our massive 2018 world tour!!!! Peace, Crabby”
