Melbourne’s Devil Electric set the vintage rock scene alight in 2017 with the release of their mesmerising self titled debut album. The 37 minute, 9-track LP received rave reviews the world over!
In 2020, they are set to follow up that landmark album with another slab of riff heavy, doom encrusted rock n roll. To whet your appetite they have released a spellbinding first single in the shape of All My Friends Move Like The Night.

The band explain the story behind the song:
“I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life”. All My Friends Move Like The Night is based on this quote from The Great Gatsby. We can all relate to being the participant and witness in our own destructive behaviour. Throughout life you find yourself swept up or surrounded by people, places, actions that are so disconnected from who you were that you don’t recognise who you are.”
‘All My Friends Move Like The Night’ is available on all Digital Platforms now:

ABOUT DEVIL ELECTRIC
Fronted by the gracious and haunting female presence of Pierina O’Brien, Devil Electric are a riff-heavy 4-piece rock n’ roll band from Melbourne, Australia. Taking musical cues from the hard rock greats of the ’70s and combining them with powerful, female fronted vocals, Devil Electric have gained fast recognition across local and global stages with their dark, signature sound.
Since forming mid-2015 Devil Electric have supported Truckfighters (Sweden), The Sword (USA), Endless Boogie (USA), Kadaver (Ger) toured the east coast with The SIGIT (Indonesia) & played CherryRock Festival in AC/DC Lane. They signed with Kozmik Artifactz (Ger) following the success of their debut EP, The Gods Below, which saw an independent release over two 7″ vinyl editions.
In 2017, the band unleashed their self-titled album through Kozmik, which debuted at #4 on the AIR Charts and received high acclaim from critics and fans alike. The LP’s second single, ‘Lady Velvet,’ enjoyed rotation on Australia’s premier youth broadcaster Triple J, while ‘Hypnotica’ was regularly featured on Rage, a longstanding music video program. Impressively, the first vinyl pressing of Devil Electric sold out within two weeks of its release.
Devil Electric continues to gain heavy traction worldwide. Their ever-growing fan base, amassed through social media and extensive touring throughout Australia and Indonesia, is a testament to the band’s talents as performers and musicians.
