Devil You Know featuring Howard (x KSE): Demo & Tour Dates

devilyouknowlogo_638

Killswitch Engage’s former front-man, Howard Jones, has started a new band called, “Devil You Know”.  The band also features Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish) and John Sankey (Devolved).

“It turned from bare-bones musical ideas into something that surpassed any of our expectations” says Howard Jones. “It went from something we thought was going to be a fun, heavy project into something very real.” ”It’s a different style of music for me,” says Jones of DEVIL YOU KNOW‘s unique sound. “It’s heavy as anything any of us are known for but I get to do some different things people won’t expect. I’ve been singing almost all my life. Being around good songwriters and musicians in my former bands really helped mold me into who I am now.”

Devil You Know’s Nuclear Blast debut is currently slated for an early 2014 release with international touring plans and a full touring lineup to be announced shortly. Some dates are listed below.

Here are the ‘Shut It Down’ lyrics from Howard for you guys : 

This war should have ended so long ago
But turning back the hands of time is useless
This war is never ending it’s all we know
We’ve wasted more than just our heart and souls

Staring down the barrel of a gun
Visions and flashes and reflections of the monster I’ve become
Then I realize

Something more calling upon me
To leave this life of death
Shut it down
Long before the light is failing
Now I’m (holding on)
I’m (reaching for)
I’m (something more)
Shut it down

This fight has made me weary now I must rise
Or everything that I’ve created dies
This fight it seems eternal but now I know
That through it all I’ll never be alone

Separation from everything I’ve stood for
Became the tomb that embraced and buried me
But I hear a voice

Something more calling upon me
To leave this life of death
Shut it down
Long before the light is failing
Now I’m (holding on)
I’m (reaching for)
I’m (something more)
Shut it down

Contemplation of self-destruction erasing the weight that I bear
Leaving a trail of existence that now remains cold to the touch and despair
Rise and face my demons
I will suffer no more

Something more calling upon me
To leave this life of death
Shut it down
Long before the light is failing
Now I’m (holding on)
I’m (reaching for)
I’m (something more)
Shut it down
Shut it down
Shut it down
Shut it down
Shut it down
Shut it down
Shut it down
