Devastations: TOUR DATES


Things are looking rosy for Devastations, a band of long and lean Australians who have been calling Berlin, Germany, home for some time now. Their most recent release, Coal, is now out in UK/Europe on Beggars [Sept 26] and will see a well-deserved stateside unveiling on Brassland, October 24th. And it's fitting that they've chosen this city of long lost secrets, grimy old buildings, and smoky glass as their home away from home, as that description can also be applied to their music.

The band will soon set foot on North American soil for the first time and you can be there! Joining them on this inaugural trek will be fellow Aussies, The Drones. Interestingly, the Devs and Drones were both shortlisted for this year's Australian Music Prize which celebrates the "best album" of the year.
