The tour will also introduce a new member of the band: Iain Trotter has decided to leave to pursue a career outside of music. The decision is completely amicable and the band supports his decision 100%. DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL are happy to announce the addition of Jozef Norocky (ex-Rinoa) on Bass Guitar. Jozef played guitar in Rinoa and has been a friend of the band for years. Jozef Norocky says: “We've been friends for a long time, but I've been a huge fan since they started, so it feels awesome to be a part of one of my favourite bands.”

Ed Gibbs (vocals) on their new bandmate: “We're really excited to welcome Jozef to the DSHS family. We've known him for ages and know that he shares our musical outlook and ambitions. He's been a part of some amazing bands and we can't wait to start writing the next chapter of DSHS with him on board. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our brother, Iain Trotter, for coming this far with us - we wouldn't have gotten here without him. Having been with us from the start, we know how hard a decision it was for him to make, but we respect that decision and wish him all the best in the future.”

The band’s touring activities are in support of their Century Media Records debut “Blessed & Cursed” that garnered critical praise:

“Simply stated, this is a breathtaking achievement, and fans of intelligent and heartfelt heavy music NEED this record in their lives” – Kerrang

“Theirs is a sound which speaks of a doomed fatality, a near-heroic acceptance of the inevitable which nonetheless refuses to go down without a fight” - Rock Sound

“See’s DSHS exploring new territories with stunning effect” - Metal Hammer

“If Radiohead made metal” - Total Guitar Magazine

“One of the most talented British bands around at the moment. After years of honing their talents, they have mastered the art forms of suspense and climax, and this album is as fulfilling an end product as they ever could have hoped for.’ - BBC.com album review
