Device Announces Debut Tour Dates!
By now, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Device, rock’s latest super-group featuring members of Disturbed, Evanescence, Filter, and Dope. You may have even been one of the hundreds-of-thousands of people who watched the video for their debut single when it launched a few weeks back. Should we mention that Device features one of Pearl’s finest artists, Will Hunt, on drums? Because it does. And in case you weren’t tuned in before, that fact alone should be enough to grab any drummer’s attention…
However, in case you still haven’t heard about Device by now, or in case you actually do live under a rock, then you need to do yourself a favor a check out the video below because Device has arrived, and their heavy industrial-sound is quickly taking over!
Device, the all-star rock band featuring Will Hunt (Evanescence), David Draiman (Disturbed), Geno Lenardo (Filter), and Virus (Dope), have released their debut single, “Vilify”, and, in only a matter of 2 weeks, have already received over 350,000 views since its YouTube release and instantly launched up the Active Rock Charts, currently residing at the No. 16 position. In even more exciting news, Device will soon be taking over a stage near you as the band is beginning to release their 2013 tour campaign, which is scheduled to begin this April! Beginning at Soul Kitchen in Mobile, AL, on April 10th, Device is scheduled to rock some of the country’s biggest rock festivals, working their way around the southern states throughout the course of the following months. Their current tour schedule can also be found below.
To complete Device’s all-star lineup, David Draiman (Disturbed), and Geno Lenardo (Filter) turned to the all-star talents of Pearl artist Will Hunt. Known mostly for his work Evanescence, Will is the go-to rock drummer for anyone needing the explosiveness and raw power that Will masterfully displays. Surrounded by an entertaining flurry of stick tricks and cymbal cracking brutality, Will’s incredibly solid playing personifies rock drumming with a hard-hitting passion and furious aggression that puts Pearl’s quality and durability to the toughest test imaginable. On the upcoming tour dates, Will is relying on the gorgeous tones of his Masterworks Series drums, which feature Reference Series shell specifications and is finished in a custom Matte Black lacquer. Will’s full configuration is as follows:
Matte Black lacquer
Black Chrome hardware
22x18 bass drum x2
16x16 floor tom
18x16 floor tom
14x6.5 Reference Series snare drum
14x6.5 Ultracast Snare drum
