EDITORS’ NOTES

With their band project Egypt Central in the rear-view mirror, Joey Walser and Blake Allison have forged a new sound as Devour the Day. It's a more sonically omnivorous project unafraid to merge earnest anthems and electronic touches into their propulsive brand of heavy rock. On "Oath," lightning-crunch riffage underpins Allison's confessional lyrics, while "Reckless" is the rare active rock song to combine fiery power chords and acoustic guitars against a waltzing beat, complete with triumphant "ooohhh"s to lift a lighter and sing along to. The single "Good Man" is a highlight. It's a dramatic track down to its plucked violins, which nod to Linkin Park at their most throat-shredding and Rage Against the Machine at their most bottom-heavy.

About Devour the Day

Memphis, Tennessee hard rock band Devour the Day was formed by Joey Walser and Blake Allison after their former band, Egypt Central, had gone inactive in 2012. Once they recruited Ronnie Farris on drums and David Hoffman on guitar, the band set to work on their debut with Grammy-winning producer Skidd Mills (Skillet, Saliva, Saving Abel). In 2013, they released Time & Pressure, an album packed with anthemic choruses, melodic riffs, and muscular focus. Jeff James and Dustin Schoenhofer joined the band's touring line-up as they embarked on stints with Hinder, Sevendust, and Pop Evil. A year after the unveiling of Time & Pressure, they re-released a remastered version of the LP, including new and acoustic bonus tracks. In 2016, the band released S.O.A.R. which was preceded by single "Lightning In The Sky." ~ Gregory Heaney & Neil Z. Yeung
