Emerging dark hard rockers The Devil In Faust have just released the spanking new video single for Soulmate, which is pulled from their explosive debut EP, Come Apart, out on Friday 28th April. You can watch Soulmate here - https://youtu.be/s-DfNEdHQ68 .
The Devil In Faust were formed at the end of 2014 and conceived by old school friends Al Pritchard (Vocals/Guitar) & Ben Codd (Drums). The duo soon started to play a cluster of shows in their local vicinity before releasing their debut video single, Dark Places. Following the online success of Dark Places, TDIF went on to release further singles during 2015: Forsaken & So Clever. All three singles secured strong support from BBC Introducing.
In 2016, the band continued to perform a series of dates. Shows with Dani Filth's Devilment and Sinnergod only added greater weight to the band's rising cause, as did support from underground sources such as Uberrock, TBFM, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing and Blank TV, to name a select few. With their live reputation on the up, TDIF were invited to record in Aarhus, Denmark with Tue Madsen (Moonspell, Meshuggah, Sick of it All). They demoed twelve tracks and decided on four choice cuts, which were shaped and carefully created to form the band's debut EP.
Since their inception, The Devil In Faust had experienced difficulty in trying to hold down a permanent bassist. However, all this changed when Al was introduced to Jess by Dave Catching at an Eagles of Death Metal show. Jess showed interest in joining TDIF, and after just a couple of rehearsals, the band transpired.
With a solidified line-up, the trio are prepared to release their debut EP Come Apart, which lands later this month. The EP offers four tracks of intoxicating alt-rock baked with hooky refrains and gothic undertones. The band new single Soulmate (https://youtu.be/s-DfNEdHQ68 ) brims with jack-hammer refrains and angsty venom, and perfectly showcases TDIF. The darkly rockers are sure to break and you want to be around when it happens.
