Time to overdrive your Friday morning with The Killing Floor’s new rocker Devil Dog. Short, sharp and punching – get some passionate anarchy into your day!
The UK & Nashville’s THE KILLING FLOOR have shared their new single “Devil Dog” – taken from the band’s forthcoming album ANTISOCIALMEDIA, due out this Friday, October 13th. Pure Grain Audio refers to the track as, “raw British rock n’ roll fused with grungy American alt-rock.”
“One afternoon the band was driving through the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania when we encountered a very large black dog with red eyes in the middle of the road,” explains vocalist Marco Argiro. “As our van approached, the beast didn’t move. It just stared at us with its big red eyes, and we were all forced to stare back in disbelief as we slowly drove around it. Someone said what the rest of us were thinking and called it a Devil Dog. We wrote the song in his honor so he wouldn’t come back for our souls.”
With members hailing from both sides of the Atlantic, The Killing Floor came together when brothers Mark and Oliver Alberici from London, had a chance meeting with Marco Argiro at Hendrix’s Electric Lady Studios in NYC where they had all been working with hit producer Mark Plati (David Bowie, Cure) on separate projects at the time. Recognizing they shared not only a producer but many of the same influences, ideas and attitudes towards music, they began writing and recording together and after taking the name The Killing Floor from the Howlin’ Wolf song, hit the road with their new material, quickly gathering fans and becoming known as one of the best new live rock acts. The band combines the best of British and American rock music and delivers an electrifying blend of, alternative, rock, pop, punk and grunge – drawing comparisons to bands like Queens of The Stone Age, Muse, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters and Nirvana.
Fans will be able to stream ANTISOCIALMEDIA this Friday October 13th on Spotify & Apple Music. For more information on The Killing Floor, be sure to follow the band on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
