Nic and Big J of the Boise, Idaho radio station 100.3 The X Rocks spoke with KILL DEVIL HILL bassist Rex Brown and vocalist Jason "Dewey" Bragg at the Rock On The Range festival, which was held May 16-18 at the Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. You can now watch the chat below.Speaking about what it was like being joined earlier in the day by his former PANTERA bandmate Philip Anselmo on stage to to perform the PANTERA classic "Mouth For War" with KILL DEVIL HILL, Brown said: "I've never seen Anselmo up before 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and there he was. He came up. We had 'Mouth For War' in the set anyway. I said, 'Dude, you wanna sing?' He said, 'Yup.' And then we went. And fucking, so it is." Bragg added: "I was awesome, actually, for me. I mean, having Phil come out and sing was great. I've been listening to PANTERA since I was a kid, and I'm the biggest PANTERA fan there is." KILL DEVIL HILL in March recruited drummer Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE, DANZIG, A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH) to replace Vinny Appice (BLACK SABBATH, HEAVEN & HELL, DIO, LAST IN LINE). "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. KILL DEVIL HILL's sophomore album, "Revolution Rise", sold around 2,150 copies in the United States in its first week of release. Released on October 29, 2013 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. Interview:
