The first in a series of video clips featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “They Bleed Red”, the sophomore album from DEVIL YOU KNOW — the creative union of Howard Jones (ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), Francesco Artusato (ALL SHALL PERISH) and John Sankey (DEVOLVED) — can be seen below. The CD will be released on November 6 via Nuclear Blast.
Produced by Josh Wilbur (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, LAMB OF GOD, KILLER BE KILLED), “They Bleed Red” is a breakneck paced trip through DEVIL YOU KNOW‘s broken psyche, struggles with anxiety, and ultimate triumph against adversity, all laid upon a foundation of high-level artistic achievement and vitriolic full throttle heavy metal fury.

The official video for the song “The Way We Die” can be seen below. The clip features a slew of Burning Angel porn stars and was shot by renowned director Corey Soria (DANZIG, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD).
Sankey states: “There’s nothing more rock ‘n’ roll than spending the night at a Hollywood strip club partying and getting wild with a bunch of sexy porn stars, so when it came time for us to decide on a concept for our latest video shoot, that’s exactly what we did. What metalhead doesn’t want to see hot tattooed girls dancing and stripping while listening to heavy guitar riffs, thunderous bass, pummeling drums and HoJo singing about ‘The Way We Die’? It’s the perfect heavy metal storm!”
He continues: “The infamous Burning Angel girls were a blast to hang out with and we had a whole lot of fun letting them entertain us for the evening. Howard got to do some ‘pole fishing,’ Francesco was making it rain, Ryan was getting plenty of attention at the pool table and I got a bit too busy with some of the ladies in the corner and eventually got us all kicked out. No regrets! We had no interest in doing another performance video with us jamming out, since we did that last album and wanted to shake things up. This was all about us having fun, getting crazy, living the dream and sharing it with the world to enjoy.”
DEVIL YOU KNOW‘s debut album, “The Beauty Of Destruction”, sold around 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 45 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was produced by Logan Mader (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, GOJIRA, DEVILDRIVER, SOULFLY) and mixed by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (HATEBREED, SOULFLY). Artwork for the album was created by noted painter and illustrator Travis Smith (OPETH, DEVIN TOWNSEND).
DEVIL YOU KNOW‘s lineup is completed by BLEEDING THROUGH bassist Ryan Wombacher.
