"I'm really excited about coming on board with KILL DEVIL HILL," said Kelly. "I've been a fan since their debut and have known the guys for a long time. It's also clear that I have some really big shoes to fill. I'm ready for that challenge as I prepare for KILL DEVIL HILL's next chapter. This is gonna be a blast!" KILL DEVIL HILL played their first shows with Kelly behind the kit April 4-6, three warm-up shows before embarking on an Australian run with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE.

We wish Vinny well with all his future endeavors, it has been a blast!"
