- One off London headline show December 10th
- Album due early 2010
"UK 6 piece DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL can now announce they have signed a worldwide deal with the amazing Century Media record label (Lacuna Coil, God Forbid, Suicide Silence, Architects, Arch Enemy), and will see their first album released in all territories early 2010. The record is now being completed by the band, and there will be more news on the album, track listings, special guests soon.
DSHS will be touring across Europe in November and playing a special one off show in London on December the 10th, at the Upstairs of the Relentless Garage, as a way of both celebrating the completion of their album, but also the Century Media deal. Look out for more UK and European support tours throughout the start of 2010, as well as a headline tour March/April 2010."
We are extremely happy to announce our signing to CENTURY MEDIA. We hope this is going to be the start of something truly special and are really looking forward to working with the awesome people at Century and can't wait to see where it takes us. We have to thank everyone who has showed us support over the last few years - be it coming to a show, buying a CD or showing love in general - for helping us get to this point. And most of all to our close friends and family for putting up with us and helping us out (a lot!) along the way. Thank you all - this is only just the beginning...
So, with all the soppy stuff out of the way, you might ask whats next? Well, basically we're wrapping up this new album and can't wait to get it out for you all to hear - we'll have news of titles and artwork in the coming weeks, so keep posted. In the meantime we've got a few shows as well as a very intimate London show to celebrate this amazing news.
December 10th will be a party and you're all invited (well the first to get tickets are at least) so come down and help us celebrate and be the first to hear some of our new tracks from our forthcoming album as well as some old tracks too - its gonna be sick (see below for the awesome line-up!).

And so back to business. This week I will be heading back to the studio to finish off guitars with Jonny. Ed will be finishing off vocals too and then we'll be sprinkling the samples and funny noises on top. We really cant wait for you all to hear this stuff, but we will be putting up some more vids before we're done here in the studio.
If anyone has any photos/vids form any of the shows over the summer, we'd love to see them. Send them over to: firstname.lastname@example.org
be good and if you can't be good, be bad baby!

tuesday/wednesday was mostly laying down some lovely clean guitars with ed's gordon smith and a bit of ehx holy grail, proper job, before richard departed on wednesday night. Since then jonny's been going nuts adding some overdubs in the dark on his tod, ed's been popping in for aftenoon tea and to sing a bit here and there and i've been finshing off the bass. wrapped up today with 'piano' (working title, no prizes for guessing why we called it that, given our taste for stating the obvious. other tracks include 'obamageddon'. serial.) and 'baroque', which is currently the album closer and an absolute beast (although our definition of baroque might differ somewhat from the orthodox)
so we've built up the bones, organs, nervous system and muscles of our brand new baby and we're just waiting for the skin, some freckles and a bit of belly fuzz. simples.
we're now having a short break while jonny starts tracking some tunes for our best buddies rinoa (no rest for the wikkid) and reconvening throughout august to finish this motherbitch off!
hope you're all doing well, don't forget about us!
Iain et al.

Our days begin with a bit of Friends with brekkie and ends with more Friends, food and whatever dire movie happens to be on freeview. The Wii has made a comeback too, with me kicking Eds ass at Wii golf - what a dooshbag! We seem to be in a freakish area of absolutely no O2 mobile reception here, so contact with the outside world is difficult - luckily wifi is saving the day.
We had some good friends come over on saturday to do some vocal stuff for one of the tracks. I am sure there will be more on this and a bit of footage in the next vid. But thanks to the Rinoa gents and Leo from Tetters for their expert vocal talents.
So another few days left for me until I head back to London and quite a bit still to do so a busy 2 days ahead, but also a few more wicked sic meals cooked by Eds mum - ftw!

While Iain was doing this I was in the car driving home from guildford, my girlfriend bought me some white chocolate mice, which I love, but I can't eat them until vocals are done, they will be a celebratory snack / overeat. Got to put down some more vocals today which I was really happy with, and now I am watching big trouble in little china. bosh.
also fyi, I have been informed that hope is a rip off of a 65 days of static song, we are both british and both played guilfest last year, so we MUST have ripped it off....
spent a good while trying to get our heads around a samba rhythm that some bastard had decided to write into one of the tracks. song is utter mayhem but all the better for it. finished off the day with some tasty riffs. fairly into our stride now so hopefully tomorrow will be a productive one, once jonny is back from picking up a tele we're borrowing (think lamb of god meets the la's. not that any of the new songs sound anything like that, but just IMAGINE. carnage.)
had the pleasure of keeping richard amused for the night as edward is off in guilford. evening very well spent playing a Peruvian dice based bluffing game and watching charlie brooker be angry on telly.

as has already been mentioned, my part of today was fumbling around in search of the holy grail. after several hours of gain tweaks, clever parallel signal routing, phase adjustments, mic placement, saddle raising to accommodate overzealous playing and about a million test recordings, we cracked it. high mids with character and a warm rounded bottom.
got half a song done too!
lessons learned for tomorrow: bring packed lunch to avoid improvised smelly sandwiches. leave shoes on. set cowbell to 'kill'.

So today, whilst in Tescos getting food supplies for another demo recording session, we pick up this weeks Kerrang and to our surprise there is a sweet review. 5K's for our recent Brighton show, at the Freebutt with Shaped By Fate and Brides. So yeah, that put us in a good mood XD And to top it off, the demos are sounding sweeeeeet!
Now we're getting geared up for Slam Dunk on sunday, which should be rad!

so, we've been real busy putting down demos of our new tracks at Bandit Studios. Got a couple more weeks to go before we're done. Back to it on tuesday, after we've recovered from eurovision!
Off to Leeds next weekend, 24th May, for Slam Dunk Festival - which is sold out - so to those already coming - see you there!
Then should be recording these tracks for real in the next couple of months. Can't wait for you to hear them.
