Devil You Know at the Joiners
To the black metal and metal core fans among you, the name Killswitch Engage will be very familiar, with a string of award nominations and wins, as well as featuring in Freddy vs Jason and Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Singer, Howard Jones, left the band in 2012 for health reasons, and his welcome return in new band Devil You Know was proven popular by the large crowd at the Joiners.
Signed to Nuclear Blast, they were on tour with ONI, Britain and Wearing Scars, providing a full night of high energy performances. Although a relatively new band Devil You Know played an experienced performance. Special mention goes to their drummer, previously of Trivium, who shared a moment with me as we simultaneously noticed he had badly sliced his hand open. Quite clearly in pain he thrashed on regardless!
