Devil You Know Snag Former Trivium Drummer Nick Augusto for Upcoming Tour
Devil You Know recently made do with former DevilDriver drummer John Boecklin sitting in for John Sankey on tour. Now they're set to hit the road with another veteran drummer -- former Trivium stickman Nick Augusto.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Sankey was taking some temporary leave from the band in order to help organize a national festival in his native Australia, which left Devil You Know seeking fill-ins for their touring.
Guitarist Francesco Artusato says, "We are very excited to start this next tour with Nick. I toured with him in the past and I'm really looking forward to play some great shows with him. We also are just wrapping up our first nationwide headlining tour with Oni, which has been going extremely well. We are red hot and firing on all cylinders, so we can't wait to join up with the mighty Hatebreed and DevilDriver to play in front of some new faces, as well as many familiar ones. Be sure to come by our merch booth after the set to check out all new items and hang with us. Lets do this."
As for Augusto, he states, "I'm honored to be on-board as Devil You Know’s touring drummer for this massive Hatebreed and Devildriver tour. As being a fan of everyone in the band's previous projects, I feel like my style will add another piece to the already growing expansion of their big, heavy and catchy sound. I am very excited to play their material live and see the reaction of their fans, and what kind of energy surfaces from these upcoming shows! Come out and have a good time with us. See you out there."
