DevilDriver to Unleash the “Beast” in February

DevilDriver to Unleash the “Beast” in February

BAND ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF FIFTH ALBUM TITLED BEAST

BEAST IN STORES ON FEBRUARY 22, 2011

New York, NY: DevilDriver announced today the release of their forthcoming fifth album, Beast. Beast was produced by Mark Lewis (All That Remains, Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder) and will hit retail via longtime label Roadrunner Records on February 22, 2011.

While many bands in the modern era are already withering away by their second album and have shriveled up and died by their third, DevilDriver have proven to mutate, growing stronger, deadlier and more immortal with each successive release. Beast, which follows 2009’s Pray For Villains, finds the band refusing to compromise in their mission to deliver music that will make you feel as though you were slapped upside the head with a baseball bat. The band recorded 14 songs during the Beast sessions, with 11 or 12 tracks expected to make the final cut. Some song titles are as follows: “Dead to Rights,” “Hardened,” “Bring The Fight (To the Floor),” “Shitlist,” “Talons Out (Teeth Sharpened),” “Blur,” “You Make Me Sick (Sacred Secrets),” “The Blame Game,” “Coldblooded, “Crowns of Creation” and “Lend Myself to the Night.”

Frontman Dez Fafara himself dubbed the record their most “extreme” to date and even compared Beast to “driving a Buick Skylark 200 miles an hour straight to Vegas” in an exclusive studio report in this month’s Revolver.

Here’s what the press had to say about DevilDriver in recent months:

“DevilDriver don’t have anything to prove-we can either bang out heads on their terms, or simply eat their dust.” —Revolver

“These five Southern California cowboys from Hell have their six guns drawn and aimed right at the competition. They blow absolutely everyone away too.” —Artist Direct

“Here, Fafara and the DevilDriver crew gut-punch the listener with a storming title track and follow with a dozen more songs that rival Slipknot and Machine Head in the groove-metal echelon.” —Alternative Press

“But it’s their fourth offering, Pray for Villains, that really consolidates the musicians’ strengths into a cohesive, street-lethal hybrid of punishing rhythms, incisive guitar licks and penetrating melodies.” —Guitar World

MUSEUM HONORS DEVO

Posted by: | Comments (2)

THE MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART (MOCA) LA,


HONORS DEVO WITH INSTALLATION

FEATURING MULTI-MEDIA


AND A WALL OF ICONIC ENERGY DOMES,

AS PART OF NEW EXHIBITION

THE ARTIST’S MUSEUM THIS MONTH

BEATPORT DEVO REMIX CONTEST BEGINS OCTOBER 26 TH

Burbank, CA – As part of its new exhibition The Artist’s Museum — a showcase of work by more than 140 artists who have helped shape the artistic dialogue in Los Angeles over the past 30 years—The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), will honor Devo with an installation devoted to the beloved New Wave pioneers.

The installation, which will be unveiled to the public on Oct 31, consists of a wall of roughly 400 Devo’s iconic red energy domes, as well as photos and video of the band. The exhibition represents the diversity and uniqueness of the Los Angeles community, and highlights important works from legendary L.A. artists who remain vital and influential alongside those emerging from renowned local art schools, visionary artists associated with various street cultures and subcultures, and crossover artists connected to performance, music, and film.

The Artist’s Museum will be on view at MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA through Jan 31, 2011.
The Media Preview for the exhibition will take place on Friday, Oct 29, from 10am–1pm at MOCA Grand Avenue, with remarks by MOCA Director Jeffrey Deitch and MOCA Associate Curator Rebecca Morse. A complimentary shuttle between the two museum locations will be provided. RSVP to Jessica Youn at 213-633-5322 or jyoun@moca.org by Friday, Oct 22.

In other exciting Devo news, Beatport is excited to announce that our new remix contest is with none other than with post-punk, electronic-music pioneers Devo!

In keeping with the title of the band’s latest album, Something For Everyone, Devo is offering up the parts from their ‘80s hit “Freedom Of Choice” as well as their newest track, “What We Do” for your reinterpretation.
Since the early days of MTV, when the band’s “Whip It” was on heavy rotation, Devo have been at the vanguard of subversive, surrealist art-pop; their music is cited as an influence by many contemporary electronic-music producers.
Adam Freeland puts it bluntly: “If you think they aren’t relevant to today’s music, then burn your LCD records, your Fall records, your Layo & Bushwacka! records, and my artist albums, amongst many others, as they simply wouldn’t sound like they do without them.”
“They’re as important as David Bowie, Run DMC, The Fall or The Stooges, if not more so,” claims Pat Pardy of Evil Nine.
Layo, of Layo & Bushwacka!—who famously sampled Devo’s “Mongoloid” for their hit “Love Story”—says, “I was first into Devo as a teenager. Matt (Bushwacka!) always laughs at me when I mention the bands I loved growing up: I was into the new wave of punk and the German experimental bands like Can.
My original favourite from Devo was always Q: Are We Not Men? A: We are Devo! I could never get away from the bass of “Mongoloid,” and then one day we had an idea about that bass with an old ragtime style piano following it. And the rest, as they say…”
The rest is history, of course, and this is your chance to become part of that legacy. Read on to find out how to enter.
The Opportunity:
On Oct 26, 2010, Beatport will make available for download the stems of “Freedom Of Choice” a favorite of many Devo fans, and “What We Do”, from the band’s latest album, SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY. From then producers may remix one or both tracks, and upload their finished remix(es) to Beatportal for the voting round.
The Prizes:
The finalists of both “Freedom Of Choice” and “What We Do” remix entries will be divided into 2 categories; 10 users voted (based on number of spins) and 10 editorial winners (picked by Beatport’s editorial team). Each category will then be submitted to Devo and Warner Brothers where they will select the winner for each track to receive:
1 – $250 Beatport gift card
1 – Native Instruments Maschine
1 – V-MODA Crossfade LP Headphones
1 – Devo Live Tour Gear Bundle
The highest spun remix entry for each track will also receive 1 – $50 Beatport gift card.
The Stages:
1. October 26th – November 15th: Download phase – The remix parts of “Freedom Of Choice” and/or “What We Do”. You may purchase the stems bundled at $3.99 USD each.
2. November 2nd – November 15th:  Upload/Submission phase – Upload your remix to Beatportal to www.beatportal.com/remix. During this phase the entries can be listened to, but not voted for.
3. November 16th – November 30th: Voting phase – The public votes for their favorite remixes by “spinning” them.
After a period of deliberation, the winner will be announced on or around Dec 21, 2010.
Go to:  http://www.beatportal.com/globals/_live_look/18964/ more information.
As previously announced Devo is about to hit the road in support of their new album SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY. Dates are listed below. Check out a plethora of new Devo merchandise at www.clubdevo.com www.clubdevo.com
Read what critics have been saying about SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY:

“Combining the punk funk fury of Devo’s earliest recordings with synth-pop, this ninth disc is frantic and wall-to-wall catchy. Devo have held onto their core belief: If you want to be subversive, be utterly, unrelentingly pop.”  — Rolling Stone

“Stop asking ‘why?’ and you’ll likely find yourself surrendering to the band’s herky-jerky hooks and machinelike swing. Impressively spot on.” — Entertainment Weekly

“Devo still has that ‘Something’ special. Devo’s nerdy electropop delivers plenty of humor and hooks – what better cocktail to help one cope with the decline of civilization?”  — USA Today

TIMES OF GRACE OFFER FREE DOWNLOAD

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on TIMES OF GRACE OFFER FREE DOWNLOAD

TIMES OF GRACE

OFFERING FREE DOWNLOAD OF “STRENGTH IN NUMBERS” ON OCTOBER 15

SONG AVAILABLE AT WWW.ROADRUNNERRECORDS.COM AT 11 AM ET

New York, NY:  Times of Grace, the new project that reteams Killswitch Engage guitarist and producer extraordinaire Adam Dutkiewicz with original KsE vocalist Jesse Leach, are offering an exclusive, free download of the song, “Strength in Numbers,” on Friday, October 15 at 11 AM ET. The song will be downloadable for 48 hours at www.roadrunnerrecords.com and will be available for purchase digitally on October 19.

“Strength in Numbers” is the dynamic first taste of the band’s debut, The Hymn of a Broken Man, which is due in stores on January 18, 2011. Times of Grace is the second go-round for Dutkiewicz and Leach, who enjoyed incredible collaborative chemistry on KsE’s definitive debut, 2002’s Alive or Just Breathing. Times of Grace doesn’t revisit the pair’s fruitful past; rather, it finds them taking a creative left turn away from what they’ve previously done, without diluting their signature styles as they explore new musical terrain. There’s an old adage that says the only way out is through, and with Times of Grace, the singer and guitarist were able to use the vehicle of music to overcome and work their way through personal struggles.
Times of Grace just shot the video for “Strength in Numbers” with director Robby Starbuck just outside of Pittsburgh, PA. The video will make its debut imminently.
