The record was produced by Logan Mader (5 FINGER DEATH PUNCH, GOJIRA) and mixed by none other than acclaimed producer/mixer Chris “Zeuss” Harris (HATEBREED, CHELSEA GRIN). Artwork was created by noted painter and illustrator Travis Smith (OPETH, DEVIN TOWNSEND).
“When Travis Smith presented us with the initial sketches we were blown away,” commented Jones. “He captured the concept of the album perfectly. It’s hugely different than anything that’s out there and will be immediately recognizable as DEVIL YOU KNOW.” Fans can order the album with or without an exclusive shirt design here: http://smarturl.it/DYK-TBOD-NB.

“The stage is really being set for something incredible to happen” says Australian born drummer John Sankey. It was Artusato’s musical collaboration with Sankey (also a collaborator with FEAR FACTORY) that caught Jones’ attention in late 2012 when demos were passed through mutual acquaintances. Based on the strengths of the two musicians’ efforts, Jones emerged from a two-year hiatus following his decade-long tenure fronting KILLSWITCH, during which the Massachusetts metallers racked up two gold records and a Grammy nomination.
A demo version of a new song called ‘Shut It Down’ can be streamed on DEVIL YOU KNOW’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/devilyouknowofficial or on Nuclear Blast’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0C17On6h3HQ.
