"Mondo Generator support live review #1"

"The school night kicked off with Perth�s own The Devil Rides Out. The lads provided perfect support � a tight performance, commanding presence and music tuned to the sound of the night�s festivities. The raspy singing/shouting of Joe Kapiteyn sat perfectly alongside his continually animated, rock n roll showmanship, and the gritty riffs and heavy melodies produced by the rest of the pack in this blues rock, early heavy metal, stoner rock mix were the perfect support. The Devil Rides Out ended with Slow Gun, a well reviewed track from their latest release, Volume III,which probably would have fit better earlier in the set due to its instrumental concentration. Nonetheless, the lads kicked off the night in the right direction and with a certain amount of bravado." -

"Mondo Generator support live review #2"

"Local support The Devil Rides Out came out with full force to the eagerly awaiting early punters. Lead Joey K clutched them by the throat and forced them to listen to his Rollins-like resonance. As a first timer seeing this band, I waas blown away with their exceptional stage presence and dynamic sound, especially during Sour Like Honey and The World Has Fangs. With Joey proclaiming at night's end that 'touring is the future', let's hope we continue to see a lot more of these guys promoting their Volumes I, II and III EPs." - Drum Media Perth

"Monster Magnet support live review"

MONSTER MAGNET with The Devil Rides Out
Metropolis Fremantle
Thursday, September 10, 2009

With fervourish post-Kyuss-on-coke cool, opening act The Devil Rides Out have it all. Sound, style and silhouette blend with bad-ass pomp and balls-out flair to match, now affectionately referred to as ‘boner rock’. It may seem easy to conflate garage genres to mere rock recitals, but when listening closely, more subtle qualities that mix old-school guitar timbre and a Beasts Of Bourbon-esqe blues give more of a definition to the sound.

It was clear the band, playing one of their biggest supports to date, easily attracted audience affection, especially after frontman Joey K’s introduction to The New Idle, making reference to the now disgraced Kyle Sandilands. The crowd thoroughly concurred when Joey K let rip that he hoped ‘we’ve seen and heard the last of that cunt’. By the time The Devil Rides Out reached the powerhouse mid-set track Right Lane Man, there was a swelling group of newly recruited fans forming front of stage. If you get to a Devil gig and grab an EP, don’t be surprised if you are compelled to drive at fast speeds with hot women. It’s just that kinda thing.

"Shihad support review"

SHIHAD / The Devil Rides Out / Brutus
Amplifier Bar
Saturday, October 17, 2009

While the Brutus lads have just started their freshman years, The Devil Rides Out are now well and truly hitting their sophomore straps. With a WAMi-Award and a shit load of high profile shows under their belt these guys continue to up the ante and it all comes down to better songwriting.

Where the band initially relied on the cock-rock pseudo humour bent, they are now betting hard on their own abilities to rise above a scene and sound which nurtured their initial forays into the Perth market. Their train of thinking is smack on the money; with a lyricist like Joe Kapiteyn in the band the gradual move toward more substantial and indeed serious themes is absolutely the right thing to do.

Tonight the set was comprised heavily of this newer material that is hopefully indicative of what’s to come. Tracks like Slow Gun and The Shape Of A Heart have a depth the band’s earlier work lacks and in the live sense this new layered sound stacks up against anything else in the genre. - Xpress


"Volume I" EP March 2007
"Volume II" EP August 2007
"Volume III" EP July 2008
"The Heart & The Crown" LP June 2010



Western Australia’s THE DEVIL RIDES OUT have established themselves as “Perth’s premier exponents of balls’n’all rock’n’roll grit’n’grime” (Drum) with their trinity of EPs; Volume I, II and III. On the back of the Volumes, the band have supported Nick (QOTSA/Kyuss) Oliveri’s MONDO GENERATOR (USA), WINNEBAGO DEAL (UK), MONSTER MAGNET (USA), SHIHAD (NZ) and CLUTCH (USA).

In May 2009 The Devil Rides Out took out the WAMi (West Australian Music Industry) Award for ‘Best Hard Rock / Metal Artist’ and were nominated again in 2010.

The band signed with Australian-based, internationally-focused label Impedance Records and released their debut full-length 'The Heart & The Crown' in June 2010. Backed by a national tour, the album has left a trail of glowing reviews in its wake...

"Evokes visions of Clutch and the Beasts of Bourbon streaking across the Nullarbor in a stolen oil tanker chased by lightning. Don't be surprised if you wake up next day with a hangover. 4/5" - BLUNT MAGAZINE

"It’s clear that the four-piece act have well and truly earned their immense reputation as one of the west’s best newcomers in recent years." - BEAT MAGAZINE

"Just plain nasty. With a garage-like urgency, metal violence and a bowel-trembling approach to production and intensity, this says man up or fuck off. 4/5." - MUSIC AUSTRALIA GUIDE

"The Devil has now unleashed a full-length that should elevate them to the very pinnacle of Australia's rock pile... Anyone looking for the monstrous fuzz of Cathedral or Kyuss crossed with the caustic venom of Crowbar and Eyehategod should find exactly what they're after with The Heart & the Crown. It's a riff-monster just waiting to eat your soul." - PYROMUSIC.NET

"This author thoroughly recommends readers hire a convertible, point the thing at the desert, flick their lit cigarette at the petrol-soaked bridge behind them, put the pedal to the metal, and crank this album full bore." - XPRESS MAGAZINE
