After a few years of being forced to cancel their UK shows, Devil You Know are now exclusively focusing on the UK market with an extensive headlining run starting Jan 10th, 2017 in small clubs to bring a very intimate experience to their fans. The appropriately helmed “Third Time’s A Charm” tour features The Westfield Massacre (first UK appearance) and UK based titans, Wearing Scars and Brutai, in the opening slots.
Francesco Artusato (guitars) states: “This is 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.”

This time around, instead of playing big arenas, the band are undertaking a more extensive run of dates in the more intimate setting of theatres. The tour is dubbed ‘Experience Kentucky: An Evening With Black Stone Cherry.’
The boys tell us, “We have been very fortunate to play some incredible shows in the UK the past few years. After headlining two arena tours and being a part of some amazing festivals, we wanted to bring it back to an atmosphere that we know our fans will enjoy and truly deserve. This tour is a way for us to bring the show to them and to play venues that allow us to deliver a very special night featuring two sets of music, like we’ve never done before. No other bands. Just the four of us and our fans! We are excited!” The band continue, “We are truly thrilled to bring this unique BSC experience to the UK! We have never done anything like this before and we knew the UK was the only place to do it. That’s all we’re gonna say about it!”
Black Stone Cherry’s current album ‘Kentucky’ (out via the Mascot Label Group) crashed into the UK album charts at #5 on its release in April and received plaudits a-plenty across the board. Last week the band unveiled their new video for ‘The Rambler’, that you can check out here; https://youtu.be/
