Canadian psychedelics with a new album
A DEVIL’S DIN is made up of 3 musicians born in the Old World who traveled across the ocean to find each other in Montreal, QC where they were drawn together by a mutual love of melodic, innovative, inventive and daring rock / metal tinged music. Fusing the colourful sounds of Syd Barrett’s Pink Floyd & the psychedelic-era Beatles with intensity of classic power bands like Sabbath, The Who, and Led Zeppelin, as well as the boundary-pushing adventure of Yes, Gentle Giant and King Crimson, A DEVIL’S DIN is an uncommon and uncompromising voice in modern music.
Debuting their album ‘One Day All This Will Be Yours’ in 2011, its been a trippy five years since fans have heard new material from the psychedelic rockers. Hitting the studio in 2014, they now return with their 2016 follow up ‘Skylight’ set for official release on June 17th to take fans on a new trip. The first single / video released is the album’s opening and title track, which can be seen and heard in the following video link below. Album pre-order available at www.ADevilsDin.com.
Vocalist / guitarist David Lines comments on the track:
“The heavy, fuzzed-out guitar riff leaps right out of the starting gate and sets the vibe for the rest of the song, which is the general theme of the album, an ode to the psychedelic experience we like to present. I wanted to write a song that illustrated some of the things I’ve seen or experienced under the influence of acid. It truly is a subjective reality that we’re all living and you can’t really get to know that concept any better than when you’re dosed out of your gills. It [LSD] has had such a huge impact on my being; it’s helped me see the world differently, more connected, and helped me realize that we are energy masquerading as flesh and bone. So anyways, I wanted to put all this in a little rock song as a kind of a “thank you” to the chemical. If Albert Hoffman was still alive, I would have loved to have him hear it! To add, musically, ‘Skylight’ at its core, is a straightforward psych/rock nugget, but it is adorned with tasty guitar melodies that interweave with a very hooky vocal melody, something that the songwriting of A Devil’s Din works hard at creating. I like melodies that go places, that stretch out over bar or two, or more. In the end, it’s things like the Beatles or even Burt Bacharach that wind up inspiring me to conceive of long, twisty melodies, that hopefully will burrow in your ear and stay a while!”
