October 22, 2016-Texas Revolution Festival held in Austin is a festival run by promoters Come And Take It Productions.
I’ve covered a lot of Come And Take It shows for Metalunderground.com, including the spring version of the festival, Texas Independence Fest in 2015. That festival featured such bands as Between The Buried And Me, Vital Remains, White Chapel, COC, Death Angel and Cavalera Conspiracy. Tonight billed such artists as Hatebreed, Devildriver, Soilwork and Crowbar.
The Independence Festival was a three-day outing, while Texas Revolution was only one day. Both festivals were held at the same venue—Empire Control Room & Garage. The Control Room stage was an smaller, inside stage that held many of the lesser-known and local acts. Ringworm headlined that stage. The Garage is an outside stage that housed the headliners.

Francesco Artusato (guitars) states: "This is also our very first official headlining UK tour of our band’s career and we are looking forward to performing a lot of new material from They Bleed Red, some of which has yet to be ever played live. We can’t wait to finally be able to give our amazing UK fans the hour-long, full DYK live experience in an intimate setting and these shows are not to be missed.
"The supporting bands for these shows are killer from top to bottom and it’s something that I am going to watch every night as well. It will also be our first time touring in Russia, which is going to be insane.
"We can’t wait to meet you all in what will officially mark the last tour of the They Bleed Red touring cycle. We have so much new music that we are going to turn around a new album to get back out summer of 2017.
"We are also offering VIP ticketing packages at each show, where for only $50 you get a guaranteed group photo with the band, as many autographed items as you like and a free t-shirt of your choice from our merch booth. I am also doing private guitar lessons before each show. All packages are on-sale now at the link below. Meet and greets will be at 6PM sharp each day." More...
Devil You Know is extremely excited to officially welcome ex-Trivium drummer Nick Augusto to the band for the upcoming tour with Hatebreed and Devildriver starting this Friday, May 13th.
Francesco Artusato (guitars) states: "We are very excited to start this next tour with Nick. I toured with him in the past and I'm really looking forward to play some great shows with him. We also are just wrapping up our first nationwide headlining tour with Oni, which has been going extremely well.
"We are red hot and firing on all cylinders, so we can't wait to join up with the mighty Hatebreed and Devildriver to play in front of some new faces, as well as many familiar ones. Be sure to come by our merch booth after the set to check out all new items and hang with us. Lets do this."
Augusto further adds: “I'm honored to be on-board as Devil You Know's touring drummer for this massive Hatebreed and Devildriver tour. As being a fan of everyone in the band's previous projects, I feel like my style will add another piece to the already growing expansion of their big, heavy and catchy sound. I am very excited to play their material live and see the reaction of their fans, and what kind of energy surfaces from these upcoming shows! Come out and have a good time with us. See you out there." More...

Unfortunately, John Sankey (drums) will not be able to participate in this tour, as he has to attend to a personal matter back in Australia, but he will re-join the band for the start of the Hatebreed and Devildriver tour on May 12th. In the interim, the renowned John Boecklin (ex-Devildriver) will join the fold for this amazing headlining tour.
Sankey states: "DYK fans, I will be sitting out our upcoming U.S. headline tour due to commitments I have in Australia as Ambassador and Co-Founder of the Legion Music Festival taking place in January 2017. It sux to miss playing these shows but being part of planning and overseeing the launch of a national music festival is an enormous task which requires all of my time and dedication right now. Unfortunately Dave Grohl isn't available to fill in, but don't fear, my good buddy and drummer extraordinaire John Boecklin will be hitting the road with Hojo, Fran and Womby to rock the kit for you all each night... F#%k yea! I'll be back from the land down under to rejoin my metal Brothers for our tour with the mighty Hatebreed and Devildriver in May/June. See ya all on the road then.|
Boecklin states: "Being a fan of DYK and its members individually, I'm beyond honored to fill in for John Sankey. Having been working on my management career and new musical project, this will be great opportunity for me to take a break and have some fun playing on stage again. I look forward to seeing friends and representing DYK behind the kit, so come on out these shows and support this heavy ass band." More...

The tour, dubbed the “Make America Metal Again” trek, is announced just as Super Tuesday kicks off and will also feature the band Oni as direct support. Full date and venue info is available below.
Francesco Artusato (guitars) states: "We are very excited to get on the road with the band Oni for our headliner tour. I got to meet the guys in this band a few months ago when I was asked to do a guest solo for their record. That's when I realized the incredible talent each one of them has. Extremely skilled musicians and the songs are sick. It’s a very cool team of people, including Josh Wilbur who produced their album (and our last record as well. He's the best!). Their record sounds really cool and I can't wait to see them perform it live. It's going to be a very fun tour for all of us!

Devil You Know has posted a striking new lyric video for the scathing track "Your Last Breath.” The track comes off the group’s new album, "They Bleed Red," which is available everywhere now.
The band consists of Howard Jones (vocals), Francesco Artusato (guitars), John Sankey (drums), and Ryan Wombacher (bass/backing vocals), while "They Bleed Red" was produced by Josh Wilbur (Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Killer Be Killed).
Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) joins WWE superstar Chris Jericho on the Talk Is Jericho Podcast and has plenty to say about Devil You Know's new album, "They Bleed Red."
He also speaks candidly about his bi-polar diagnosis, fighting depression, living with diabetes, his not so amicable departure from his former band Killswitch Engage, playing Ozzfest, opening for Iron Maiden, and his great passion for fishing and Christian heavy metal.

Devil You Know is now streaming a cover version of the classic Rocky movie series anthem track, “Eye of The Tiger.” This is a rousing, hard rock rendition to the Survivor hit song and is available below.
Look for Devil You Know on tour alongside Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach across all of Europe now through November 28, 2015. John Sankey (drums) states:
"One day when we were in the studio working on our new album, They Bleed Red, Howard Jones (vocals) turned up in a shower robe and started shadow boxing in the vocal booth while doing his best Rocky Balboa impersonation. It was so impressive that we immediately knew we had to do a cover of the infamous Rocky soundtrack theme. 'Eye Of The Tiger.' We had already been discussing the possibility of recording a cover, but had no idea what song we would do. In that moment when Hojo literally transformed himself into the Italian Stallion right in front of our very eyes we knew it was the perfect choice!
"Our biggest challenge would be adapting the original song into our own style, so we decided each of us must take on the persona of a different cast member to best capture the performance necessary to do such an iconic song justice. Howard lived and breathed the role of Rocky for a full week, Francesco Artusato (guitars) became as a slightly shorter Ivan Drago, Ryan Wombacher (bass) was the perfect fit for a modern day Mickey and I of course was a 'way too Australian' not quite as ripped version of Apollo Creed. We entered the studio swinging wildly in all directions with our respective instruments and there was blood, sweat and many many tears, mainly of uncontrollable laughter. Hours later we emerged victorious and super slow motion high-fived each other in classic Rocky fashion as we listened back to the sweet metal sounds of a reformed Survivor classic. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we do." More...

All four members of Devil You K Now recently sat down to give fans a very detailed and inside look into the making of their new full-length album "They Bleed Red," available everywhere on November 6 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Howard Jones (vocals), Francesco Artusato (guitars), John Sankey (drums), and Ryan Wombacher (bass/backing vocals) deliver a dense monstrosity of technical prowess and angst-ridden passion on "They Bleed Red," produced by Josh Wilbur (Avenged Sevenfold, Lamb Of God, Killer Be Killed).

Devil You Know just dropped a new music video for the track "The Way We Die,” which comes off upcoming full-length "They Bleed Red," due out everywhere on November 6 (Nuclear Blast Records).
The clip features a slew of Burning Angel porn stars and was shot by director Corey Soria (Danzig, Hollywood Undead). Look for Devil You KNow on tour alongside Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach across all of Europe from November 2 through 28.
John Sankey (drums) states: "There’s nothing more rock n' roll then spending the night at a Hollywood strip club partying and getting wild with a bunch of sexy porn stars, so when it came time for us to decide on a concept for our latest video shoot that’s exactly what we did. What metalhead doesn’t want to see hot tattooed girls dancing and stripping while listening to heavy guitar riffs, thunderous bass, pummeling drums and HOJO singing about ‘The Way We Die’? It's the perfect heavy metal storm!
"The infamous Burning Angel girls were a blast to hang out with and we had a whole lot of fun letting them entertain us for the evening. Howard got to do some 'pole fishing', Francesco was making it rain, Ryan was getting plenty of attention at the pool table and I got a bit too busy with some of the ladies in the corner and eventually got us all kicked out. No regrets! We had no interest in doing another performance video with us jamming out, since we did that last album and wanted to shake things up. This was all about us having fun, getting crazy, living the dream and sharing it with the world to enjoy.” More...
Devil You Know is streaming "Stay of Execution" below, which is also the first look into sophomore recording effort "They Bleed Red," set for a November 6, 2015 release through Nuclear Blast. This release follows debut album "The Beauty of Destruction" (reviewed here). Francesco Artusato (guitars) states:
"This one was definitely a song that happened unexpectedly. The point was to make a ‘heavy' song (of course, haha) that would have a lot of hooks and cool parts, but not fallowing a typical structure so we had fun trying different things. We have the black metal part, the groovy part, an epic chorus, cool bridge section, gang vocals at the end, etc. It’s literally a bit of everything.
"I wrote the main riff while walking in a mall somewhere while on tour. I was humming it into my phone so I would remember it for later. It was a weird day, haha. I’m just so excited for this new record. It’s a beast! I can’t wait to start playing the new material and the next tour with Fiver Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach in Europe this November is going to be massive!”
John Sankey (drums) further adds: “The track, 'Stay Of Execution,' was the last song that was written for our new album. I wanted us to have a track that was fast, brutal and really slamming with an unconventional song structure. Francesco and I had some demos that we hadn’t used yet, so I tore a few of those unfinished tracks apart and pieced together the coolest sections to create this song. It is definitely one of my favorite tunes from the album because for me personally this feels more like the death metal style that I’m used to playing. There's blast beats, lots of double bass and some really cool busy drum fills. More...

Devil You Know recently completed recording a sophomore release with producer Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, All That Remains, Killer Be Killed), due out in November and with full details to follow.
The band states: "Europe are you ready... We are finally coming to get loud, sweaty and crazy with you. It's been a long wait, so we are going to blast you all with as much metal as we possibly can. This means you will hear songs from our brand new upcoming album, which we will be performing for the first time ever. We will be playing two very intimate and special headlining shows in Gothenburg on Oct 31st and Hamburg on Nov 7th. Let's lose our minds together Europe, it's ON!
“Also, we will be doing only six, very special one-off headlining shows across North America during the Coal Chamber and Fear Factory tour. If you are in those areas, you don’t want to miss out on these intimate, extended set live shows. See you all very soon." More...
