Device is Coming!
Pearl artist Will Hunt, of Evanescence and Black Label Society fame, has officially announced his position in the new hard rock super-group, Device! Alongside Disturbed vocalist David Draiman, and Filter’s Geno Lonardo, Device stands as the latest and most-talked about new rock band with their new and official trailer receiving thousands of views in only a few day’s time. The trailer, which can be seen below, gives some insight to the band’s newfound sound, which is self-described by the band as “dark, heavy, melodic, and industrial”. Device’s debut album is scheduled to hit the shelves on April 9th, but their first single, “Vilify”, was released earlier this week and can be seen and heard below, along with the 'making of' video which offers some behind-the-scenes views into the shooting of the "Vilify" music video.
After almost 2 years of nonstop touring with Evanescence, Will Hunt should be taking a much deserved break. Then again, being one of the most in-demand rock drummers of today doesn’t leave you with much down time. An absolutely crushing drummer who’s hard hitting almost makes you feel sorry for the drum, and highly entertaining stick tricks adding to the excitement of his live show. With arm-flailing, fully extended snare smashing and quick, crisp footwork- not to mention a seemingly endless supply of drum fills- Will Hunt clearly owns every trick in the book, and it’s why is continues to be so highly regarded in the drumming and music worlds. With Device, as he did with Evanescence, Will will be seen rocking his gorgeous Masterworks Series drums, complete in a Matte Black lacquer and topped with black chrome hardware. Will’s specs are as follow:
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
Device’s debut show is scheduled to take place on April 28th at the Welcome to Rockville Festival in Jacksonville, FL. For more information on Device and Will Hunt, please be sure to visit their official website at www.DeviceBand.com.
