News : Devil Electric: Release Lyric Video for Lady Velvet, Announce Album Launch Event

By on July 12, 2017

Melbourne’s Devil Electric are gearing up to release their self-titled debut album.
The 37-minute, 9-track LP will be released digitally, in various colourways on 180g vinyl and in a variety of pre-order merchandise bundles on August 11, 2017.
.
Second single ‘Lady Velvet’ is accompanied alongside an animated lyric video, created by German design studio 12 Inch Media.

Bassist & co-writer Tom Hulse offers an insight into the lyrical themes behind this track…
Lady Velvet was written with the idea of painting a picture at the forefront. I wanted to create images and draw a theme in the listeners mind within the first few lines, touching on opposing forces and building a character. The song is about the push and shove of relationships we experience with the world, both on a human level and a fictional/dramatised one. There’s always light and shade in life and when you run your hand across velvet you can see it change in colour and form, reflecting just that in a material form.”
Devil Electric will be rounding out 2017 with their Australian album tour (August – October) and an overseas run through Indonesia in December and with European & US dates in the works.
*****
Fronted by the gracious and haunting female presence of Pierina O’Brien, Devil Electric are a riff-heavy 4-piece rock n’ roll band.
.
Lead single Hypnotica is the final track from their debut record, a six and a half minute heavy-blues infused fuzzed-out jam that transports the mind into the swelling, darker depths of rock n’ roll. 
.
Since forming mid-2015 Devil Electric have supported Truckfighters (Sweden), The Sword (USA), Endless Boogie (USA), Kadaver (Ger) toured the east coast with The SIGIT (Indonesia) & played CherryRock Festival in AC/DC Lane. They signed with Kozmik Artifactz (Ger) following the success of their debut EP, The Gods Below, which saw an independent release over two 7” vinyl editions.

The heavy chug and masculinity of the rhythms are perfectly counterbalanced by Pierina O’Brien’s Joplin-esque vocals Heavy Magazine
Devil Electic blew my mind. A wall of sound with haunting vocals – one word, HUGE Tonedeaf
One of the best things I’ve heard in ages… Devil Electric’s first single is proof that the Southern state has possessed the soul of rock and roll Doomed & Stoned
