Band information

The Devil Rides Out is a hard-edged stoner rock and metal band from Perth. The group was formed in early 2006 by former HeadShot and iNFeCTeD vocalist Joey K and Andrew Ewing from Thumb. Ben Franz from The Waifs and ex-Downer drummer Royce Uyen joined shortly afterward and the band played its first show on June 6, 2006. Franz left the band in early 2008 to honour his commitment to The Waifs and was replaced by Brendan Ewing, also ex-Thumb.

Having supported Mondo Generator during 2008, TDRO won a WAMi Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Act in early 2009, the only other band to have won it apart from Karnivool. The band opened for Monster Magnet in Perth that September and supported Clutch in March 2010. A single "Broken White Line" was released in April ahead of the album The Heart and the Crown and a national tour in June. In October 2010, Brendan Ewing announced his departure. After some downtime, The Devil Rides Out announced Ewing's replacement as Scott Paterson. The band's 2013 EP release featured a darker and heavier style, with Uyen announcing he would be leaving the band following its release. The EP was accompanied by video clips for each track. Nathan Sproule from Chainsaw Hookers replaced Uyen in July 2013. Late in the year The Devil Rides Out opened for Sleep in Sydney and Perth and then supported Melvins.
