KILL DEVIL HILL the new band featuring acclaimed drummer Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heaven and Hell, Dio) and bassist Rex Brown, (Pantera, Down) guitar slinger Mark Zavon and lead vocalist Dewey Bragg have confirmed a new batch of tour dates for late this summer beginning August 1st. More dates are expected to be announced shortly. A list of confirmed dates can be found below.
KILL DEVIL HILL‘s self-titled debut album was released May 22nd via Steamhammer/SPV and landed at #9 on the Billboard Top New Artist Albums (HeatSeekers) Chart, #41 on the Top Hard Music Chart and #50 on the Independent Album Chart.
The band recently released a video for the single “Strange”. Check it out on the SPV YouTube Channel HERE.
It’s not easy to say what catches the listener’s attention first on Kill Devil Hill, the debut album by the newly formed band of the same name: the strong guitar hooks, the killer grooves, the dynamic production or the potent vocal melodies. Rex Brown, bassist of this super group and erstwhile member of Pantera and Down sees KILL DEVIL HILL in its entirety as an extremely exciting new band “To me, this band is a musical adventure trip,” he reckons. Brown knows what he’s talking about, after all he was involved in some of the most important rock and metal recordings of the past 30 years. So if Brown can hardly contain his enthusiasm, there must be something special to the KILL DEVIL HILL phenomenon.

EDEN’S CURSE, the group which is currently nearing the final stages of the writing phase for its as-yet-untitled fourth album – the first to feature new vocalist Marco Sandron (PATHOSRAY, FAIRYLAND) at the microphone – couldn’t hide its delight.
“Signing a new deal with AFM was one of the easiest decisions we have made as band,” quipped bassist Paul Logue. “AFM have been our long term partners since 2007 and have always done a great job for us. We recently sat down together and discussed our future plans and where we saw the band headed and they made it known that they are firmly behind us.”
He added, “Consolidating everything under one roof, as opposed to having several separate deals, made great business sense to us and our management,” Logue said. “I’m sure it means less paperwork for all involved! We will, however, still be working with our long-term Japanese partners, Spiritual Beast. Why fix what ain’t broke?”
Regarding the progress of the songwriting sessions for the next album, Logue said, “It’s going! We are really into the home straight of the writing phase now. We are taking our time to make sure we have the song ideas that does the EDEN’S CURSE name proud and exactly what our fan base would expect from us. We are very excited by the new tunes.”
AFM Records states: “Working with EDEN’S CURSE always was a delight. These guys are really dedicated to what they do and their ambitions, positive attitude and high standards always result in great quality. Since signing with us in 2007, the band has released three fantastic albums. No signs of slowing down — in fact, it’s quite the contrary. But also beside the creative part, we found reliable partners in EDEN’S CURSE. That’s why we are very happy that the previous deal with the band (which was for the European territory only) now has become enhanced to a worldwide deal. We are looking forward to a great fourth album next year, and many more to come hopefully…”
EDEN’S CURSE’s new album is tentatively scheduled for release in the spring of 2013.
