DEVIL TO PAY have announced that the band will be celebrating it's 10 Year Anniversary by trekking across parts of America to rock out with friends and fans along the way! Having put the final touches on the writing and demoes for their next album (first with Ripple Music), DTP are anxious to hit the road and bring the sonic devastation with them. Audiences along the route will be treated to a handful of brand new tracks that will be featured on the as-of-yet untitled fourth album, as well as some surprise tunes if time permits. On Saturday, September 1st, the Indianapolis-based purveyors of heavy rock will be bringing their catalog of rock to the 4-day Stoner Hands of Doom Festival (now in it's 12th incarnation), which will feature performances from Doom Heavyweights, The Skull, Iron Man, Roadsaw, and many, many more!
2012 marks a big time for the hard-working band. Coinciding with their 10 year anniversary, this year also was highlighted by DEVIL TO PAY's signing with growing hard rock specialty label Ripple Music and an appearance on the Ripple Effect Presents: Volume One - Head Music compilation.

8/31 - NYC, NY @ Trash Bar w/ IKILLYA & Hung
9/1 - New London, CT @ El N Gee Club for Stoner Hands of Doom XII
9/2 - Newark, DE @ Mojo Main w/ Beelzefuzz, Pale Divine & Admiral Browning
DEVIL TO PAY was formed in the beginning of the millennia as a doom rock band with metal and rock tangents, effortlessly crushing skulls while simultaneously coaxing them to sing along. The band hails the almighty riff, but unlike many of their contemporaries, the song is still king. That is what separates the great bands from the shoulda & coulda bands. Now celebrating their 10th year anniversary, DEVIL TO PAY has aged like Kentucky bourbon, distilling a culmination of years of sweat, highway miles, cigarette smoke and hangovers into crushing compositions and bone-jarring, heavy musical moments.
With a catalog of underground releases, DEVIL TO PAY gained accolades, awards and a hard earned cult-like status. They have established themselves as the go-to band for those searching out more than just a few killer riffs; a foundation of heavy that will flourish under the Ripple banner.
