LIGHT THE TORCH (formerly known as DEVIL YOU KNOW) have released the first video trailer for their upcoming new album Revival. In the trailer, the band introduce new drummer Mike “Scuzz” Sciulara.

Revival will be released via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on March 30.

“‘Die Alone’ is basically a note I had written to myself a couple years ago, and it seemed to really fit the music,”said frontman Howard Jones“We are more than excited to release our album »Revival«, and we all feel it’s been worth every bit of the struggle to get it done. See you all soon on the road.”

The Los Angeles, CA trio — the aforementioned Jones, Francesco Artusato [guitar], and Ryan Wombacher [bass] — drew from five years together as DEVIL YOU KNOW to forge a wholly distinct path. Amidst myriad struggles, they returned from the brink under a new name.

“2016 was a really tough year for us as a band, both personally and professionally,” explains Jones. “While going through some lineup changes, we were also battling some issues with the use of our band name. At the same time, I was trying to deal with the loss of my oldest brother, which really hit me hard. During that time, we just bonded like never before. We all meshed because we faced war together. We survived. At the end, we realized we were a real band and decided to make an album representing that resilience. Honestly, we came out of the dark. The name literally signifies what we went through.”

“It was time for a change,” the singer continues. “It was time for us to try and stretch our wings. We were really going for songs. The structuring made more sense. I was focused on melody and harmony. I really cut loose. All in all, it was the perfect storm. We had so much fun making this, because there were really no restrictions other than creating a heavy and catchy body of work.”

The LIGHT THE TORCH lineup boasts one of the most esteemed pedigrees in modern heavy music. Jones spent a decade at the helm of GRAMMY® Award-nominated and gold-selling titans KILLSWITCH ENGAGEArtusato had much-lauded stint in ALL SHALL PERISH and has attained status as a shred virtuoso.  Wombacher was a staple in BLEEDING THROUGH for well over a decade. For Revival, they are joined by EXTINCTION A.D. drummer Mike “Scuzz” Sciulara behind the kit.
