Device is #1!

There is a new #1 rock band in the US, and it comes in the form of rock music’s most talked about and fresh all-star lineup, Device.  The band that has taken over rock news headlines has now taken over radio airwaves as well with their debut single, “Villify”, launching to the No. 1 position on the Active Rock Charts, having maintained their top position for 3 consecutive weeks and counting.  The now- No. 1 rock single in the country comes from the Device’s debut album, a self titled effort that hit the shelves on April 9th, to rave reviews and high-praising response.  Device, the album, rocketed up the charts almost instantly upon its release, reaching the No. 11 position on the US Rock Album charts, along with appearing in the high ranks of the international rock charts as well.  On their album release day, Device- which consists of members from Disturbed, Evanescence, Filter, and Dope- made their first live appearance to a packed house at the Soul Kitchen Music Hall in Mobile, AL.  Since then, the industrial-rock phenom has graced the stages of major festivals around the US, exciting the masses with their progressive and fresh sound and proving their No. 1 status. 

Pearl artist, Will Hunt- of Evanescence and Black Label Society fame- is the mastermind behind the madness of Device, with his signature hard hitting, stick flipping, snare smashing brutality behind the kit awing and amazing crowds with each stop on tour.  On Device’s upcoming run on the 2013 Giagantour, Will Hunt is turning to his trustworthy Masterworks Series drums, complete with matching kick drums, a sleek ICON Rack System, and a series of floating toms that are topped with Tru Trac electronic drumheads to complete the industrial sections of Device’s sound.  Will’s setup is as follows:

Masterworks Series:
Matte Black 
w/ black hardware

22x18 bass drum x2
12x8 tom
16x16 floor tom
18x16 floor tom
14x6.5 Ultracast snare drum

Epro Live:
(4) 10x8 tom w/ Tru Trac drum head

As previously mentioned, Device is gearing up to embark on the 2013 Giagantour which is schedule to hit the road in early July.  For more information on Will Hunt and Device, please be sure to visit their official website,  To get a taste of this new band’s sound, simply tune in to your local rock radio station and turn up the radio to hear Device’s debut and No. 1 hit single, “Vilify”.  Congrats Will!
