"Wake Up The Dead", a brand new song from KILL DEVIL HILL — the band featuring legendary drummer Vinny Appice (DIO, BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL) alongside Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) on bass, Mark Zavon (RATT, W.A.S.P., 40 CYCLE HUM) on guitar and Jason "Dewey" Bragg (PISSING RAZORS) on vocals — can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. The track comes off the band's sophomore album, "Revolution Rise", which will be released in North America on October 29 via Century Media Records. The CD was produced by KILL DEVIL HILL and Jeff Pilson (DOKKEN, FOREIGNER, DIO) and was mixed by Jay Ruston (STONE SOUR, ANTHRAX, STEEL PANTHER). The cover artwork was created by Sam Shearon, who has previously worked with ROB ZOMBIE, IRON MAIDEN and FEAR FACTORY, to name just a few. Pre-order bundles are now on-sale exclusively through both CM Distro and the KILL DEVIL HILL online store. Each site has their own unique pre-order options for fans to choose.
Says Brown about the "Wake Up The Dead" track: "This is from the our first writing sessions for the album. It's got that doomy BLACK SABBATH vibe to it — open, ringing notes with eerie vocal on top, but heavy."

Says Brown of the new album: "This new KILL DEVIL HILL record is definitely one of my favorite moments of my career — it's got balls, great melodies, awesome guitar riffing and a low end that'll set your ass on fire! The album far exceeds our wildest expectations and we can't wait to take this music out on the road and share it with all of our friends and fans. Buckle your seat belts, we're all in for one hell of a ride!"
