Satanic rock and roll act The Devil's Blood has issued the following statement about their planned performance in London alongside Trouble:
"The Devil's Blood will NOT perform in London's Underworld with Trouble.
"To avoid any further confusion we now have to make an official statement regarding our Ritual in London. We were informed that we are not welcome at this point to perform with US doom band Trouble at Camden's Underworld in London. If this is a decision made by the band or by the venue is actually totally unclear. A few day's worth of emailing, telephone calls and text-messaging not withstanding it seems no one in the entire organization was able to speak out in a definitive manner on this subject.
"Frustrating as it is we have decided to move on to more important things and leave this circus of confusion behind us. The Devil's Blood will make great efforts to invade the UK at a later date. Plans to this extent are being made as we speak. Our Hails to all individuals we have done so much to get us in London and to the maniacs active in the UK underground who have so diligently furthered our course of Chaos!"

Satanic rock and roll act The Devil's Blood has issued the following announcement about releasing a new album:
"With a release date scheduled for September the eleventh of two thousand and nine THE DEVIL'S BLOOD unleash this epic work that encapsulates all that defines this cult once and for all. Transcending all that has come before and and the same time affirming their origin and roots with clear artistic zeal and clear spiritual force. Many tears, screams of anguish, cries of joy and drops of blood where spent to get to this momentous junction. The recording, mixing and mastering process was again in the more than capable hands of engineer of Pieter G. Kloos whom the band have worked with since the beginning.
"This album is intended as a push towards the apex of the Kali Yuga we are currently existing in. The title describes a state of unbeing which lies just beyond existence as we perceive it 'normally' and through the words and music it is intended that nails are raked across the thin boundaries that separate us from the crawling chaos and into the timeless eternity of the thoughtless void. Our vision is that these songs, each in a different manner and from a different angle, succeed in helping the listeners to attune their beings to the vibrations of the left hand side and making its wine spill into this world, drop by drop, song by song, word by word, curse by curse and, eventually, death by death...
"...thus ushering in 'The Time Of No Time Evermore'!"

Following their “Graveyard Shuffle” 7” (released by the band’s EU label Van Records), The Devil’s Blood is inspired and reflective through the aesthetics of such classic acts as BLACK WIDOW, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, BLUE CHEER, ROKY ERIKSON, COVEN, and BLACK SABBATH.

"Channeling their chaos through a means of being inspired by atmospherically crafted vintage ‘70s classic psych/prog rock with the aesthetic audial aura of such revered cult-acts as ROKY ERICKSON, COVEN, BLACK SABBATH, BUDGIE, BLACK WIDOW, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, and BLUE CHEER, and classic/vintage horror theater/cinema, The Devil’s Blood unleash their magic through a vibrant a celebration of life, sex, death, and decay.
"This special act, nonetheless, have already made quite a striking impression through filth and mire. With demo tracks already unveiled via their myspace page, along with their recent (and very first) rituals performed this past April at this year’s Roadburn festival and a special Walpurgis Night ritual even more recently, along with their recently released “Graveyard Shuffle” 7” (released via the band’s European label, Ván Records, in which we’ll have copies for sale as well very soon), we here at Profound Lore plan on helping build even more awareness for The Devil’s Blood, on these cursed shores.
"The current situation surrounding The Devil’s Blood is the band will ride the current wave of the exquisite aforementioned 7” just released and will enter the studio late July to record a special EP to be released in the fall. All this leading to the pending buildup of the band’s debut full-length to be released during the first half of 2009."
