On Sunday, August 11, "Beyond The Watch" conducted an interview with DEVICE, the industrial-style project featuring DISTURBED frontman David Draiman, at the Toronto, Ontario, Canada stop of this summer's Gigantour. You can now watch the chat below.
DEVICE recently filmed a video for the song "You Think You Know". Directing the clip once again was P.R. Brown, who helmed DEVICE's first video, for the song "Vilify". Brown has previously collaborated with such artists as MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Carrie Underwood, Prince, AUDIOSLAVE, MÖTLEY CRÜE and SIXX: A.M.
DEVICE released its self-titled debut album on April 9. It debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard album chart, selling 35,000 copies in its first week of release. The CD features guest appearances from AVENGED SEVENFOLD singer M. Shadows, SYSTEM OF A DOWN vocalist Serj Tankian, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello, HALESTORM singer Lzzy Hale, BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler and ex-DEEP PURPLE bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes.
David launched DEVICE last year with ex-FILTER guitarist Geno Lenardo, after DISTURBED went on hiatus in late 2011.
Lenardo is not touring with DEVICE due to previous commitments. The live band, which made its debut on April 10 in Mobile, Alabama, includes DOPE guitarist Virus and EVANESCENCE drummer Will Hunt.
In addition to DEVICE, Gigantour featured appearances by MEGADETH, HELLYEAH, NEWSTED and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY.
