Heavy rock super group DEVIL CITY ANGELS recently announced the upcoming release of their high-energy debut self-titled album, hitting stores on September 11th via Century Media Records. The album is available for purchase via Amazon, iTunes, and CM Distro, with the potent singles ‘All I Need’ and ‘Boneyard’ available as instant grat tracks.
The band have premiered their brand new track ‘All My People’ online. Check it out below:
Guitarist Tracii Guns states: “’All My People‛ was the first track we recorded. It was about 80% finished when our singer Brandon brought it in to us. We freshened it up a bit, put the microphones in front of the band, and the moment we listened back, we all agreed we had something special in the chemistry of the band. It was a very positive moment in time. I suppose you could say this was the song that birthed DEVIL CITY ANGELS.”
DEVIL CITY ANGELS has no shortage of professionals in its ranks – namely Tracii Guns of L.A. GUNS on guitar, drummer, Rikki Rocket of POISON, Rudy Sarzo of QUIET RIOT and OZZY OSBOURNE on bass, and singer Brandon Gibbs of THE GIBBS BROTHERS and CHEAP THRILL. With upwards of 100 million units sold and countless packed arena and stadium gigs worldwide between them, the members of DEVIL CITY ANGELS have banded together to do what they love – simply rock out and have a great time while providing music lovers with a fun and engaging sound that everyone can enjoy.
In 2014, longtime buddies Tracii and Rikki jammed at a Keith Moon and Jon Entwistle tribute show together with DEVIL CITY ANGELS’ first bassist Eric Brittingham of CINDERELLA. Rocking on stage felt so good that they collectively agreed, “Let’s start a band.” So, Rikki rang Brandon with whom he’d built a relationship after producing music for him ten years prior.
The four musicians holed up in Southern California’s Patagonia Studios within a month of that impromptu first gig. The five-acre ranch allowed for a level of comfortable isolation, encouraging complete focus. As a result, they quickly conjured up a sound of their own. The first track, ‘All My People’, speaks to that approach with a rollicking and raucous bluesy riff, boisterous drumming, and powerhouse vocals. The first single, ‘Boneyard’, merges a smooth and swaggering riff with soulful vocals. Meanwhile, ‘No Angels’ begins with a lumbering groove that drips into a heavenly and hypnotic hook.
After recording the album with Brittingham, the bassist amicably split with the guys. Rudy Sarzo stepped into the fold in the spring of 2015 and the band couldn’t be stronger.
