Devilskin Release First Single ‘Little Pills’ From Debut Album ‘We Rise’ on November 6th

Devilskin

Devilskin will release their first single ‘Little Pills‘ from their debut album ‘We Rise‘ on November 6th.

A phenomena in their native New Zealand, Devilskin release their debut album ‘We Rise‘ on November 6th through Rightrack Records/Universal.
We Rise debuted at #1 in New Zealand and has just become the first album since 2010 by a domestic rock band to achieve Platinum status.
The four piece Devilskin hail from Hamilton, New Zealand and comprise of the mesmerizing Jennie Skulander on vocals, the red bearded ‘evil twins’ Nail and Paul Martin on guitars and Nic Martin on Drums.
Devilskin have already earned a formidable reputation by earnestly demonstrating commitment to unpretentious musical values: writing songs filled with passion combined with a relentless touring schedule. In 2015 Devilskin have supported Mötley Crüe, Slash and Alice Cooper in New Zealand.  Their tactical instrumental attack is balanced by the seductive Jennie Skulander and her incredible voice that sweeps from whisper to roar, rips with power, drips with melody and captivates with sincerity.

‘We Rise’ was recorded at York St Studios in Auckland and Rockfield Studios in Monmouth UK and clearly shows Devilskin possess a depth and maturity with their songwriting that is simply undeniable. ‘We Rise’ is at times visceral, urgent and magniloquent but also tempered with tenderness, empathy, love and bare souls. “We Rise is a roller coaster of emotions and moods, just like life” enthuses Paul Martin “there’s definitely power and there’s definitely passion. The songs are very real, and brutally honest, just like our live show.”

‘The songs deal with introspection and questioning your feelings whether its the aggressive smash of Violation or the heart-on-your-sleeve tones of Surrender. Relationships and self awareness, delusions of grandeur, psychological and emotions crutches and empowerment are all part of this album.’

Devilskin’s irresistible debut album ‘We Rise’ combines gorgeous melodies of heavy, bombastic rifts, with streamlined hard rock anthems aimed squarely at the arena circuit, no one else does it better right now.
Musically twisted and possessed We Rise will see Devilskin conquer the global stage.
