Devilskin Release Their Début Album ‘We Rise’ on 6th November

A phenomena in their native New Zealand, Devilskin release their début album We Rise on November 6th through Rightrack Records/Universal.

We Rise débuted at #1 in New Zealand and has just become the first album since 2010 by a domestic rock band to achieve Platinum status.

The singles from We Rise have amassed over 1 million YouTube views. Indulge now in their debut UK single Little Pills out November 6

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.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
