Devil Sold His Soul:  teaming up with ARCHITECTS and Norma Jean for UK touring, more headlining shows
DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL will be joining ARCHITECTS and the legendary Norma Jean on their upcoming Rock Sound and Fender sponsored UK tour!

Ed Gibbs (vocals) on supporting their fellow friends from ARCHITECTS: “Really massively excited about this tour, the line up is absolutely solid, will be fun to get out there with our friends and labelmates ARCHITECTS and Norma Jean who have been an important part of the metal and hardcore scene for the past 8 or more years, so it's really an honour to be a part of it. It's going to be heavy. We should be in full swing with the new album ‘Blessed & Cursed’ by then and be playing a good amount of new stuff, which we're really excited about! There are some really fun songs to play, and it's still nice and fresh live to us, that said, I'm sure we'll probably fit one or two old ones in!”

Sam Carter (vocals) from ARCHITECTS is equally excited: “This tour is going to be awesome. I’ve been a fan of Norma Jean for years, so I can’t wait to see them…and Devil Sold His Soul are awesome. Can’t wait to hang out with those guys again."
