David Draiman’s Device Unveil Teaser Video for Self-Titled Debut Album
As the anticipation builds for the April 9 release of their self-titled debut album, Device have released a short, 45 second black and white teaser video featuring a snippet of their music (watch below). The first single 'Vilify' hits radio on Feb. 19.
The trio formed by David Draiman from Disturbed has recruited a star-studded lineup of guest musicians for 'Device.' Among those making appearances are Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler, Deep Purple singer-bassist Glenn Hughes, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows, System of a Down singer Serj Tankian, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Halestorm's Lzzy Hale.
The band's touring lineup consists of Draiman, Evanescence drummer Will Hunt and Dope / Eve to Adam guitarist Virus. Former Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo wrote and recorded the album with Draiman, but will not tour with the outfit.
Draiman recently discussed how happy he was with Hale's appearance. “For years I’d wanted to re-do ‘Close My Eyes Forever’ by Lita Ford and Ozzy Osbourne. I always thought it was a fantastic idea and needed the right combination of elements and events and needed to have the right woman to play the role of Lita in this song, and Lzzy Hale, in my opinion, is the strongest, most distinctive voice, female voice, in rock today. I think that she’s just as good as it gets.”
Device have some concert dates scheduled in support of their debut album. They'll play in Switzerland later this month, and then have several festival dates lined up for the spring and summer. You'll be able to see them at Rock on the Range, Carolina Rebellion, Welcome To Rockville Festival, Lazerfest 2013 and elsewhere.
