Andreas Bengtsson from DEVILLE talks Australian Tour, ‘Heavy Lies the Crown’ 20th Anniversary.

Swedish riff lords Deville make their first trip to Australia this June after Covid halted their plans in 2020, today having again announced plans for an extensive national tour on the back of multiple festival appearances and their latest album release “Heavy Lies the Crown”.

The Everblack Podcast spoke to Andreas Bengtsson from DEVILLE about their long awaited headline Australian tour, latest album ‘Heavy Lies the Crown’, bands 20th anniversary, future plans and more!

Watch/listen to the interview here: 

Born in 2004, Deville have developed through a haze of Rock, Stoner and Metal sounds, creating something unique which has seen them support the likes of Red Fang, Sepultura, Torche, Fu Manchu, Truckfighters and tour the US, UK and Europe many times over, playing the world’s best venues and festivals.

With albums signed to Heavy Psych Sounds, Buzzville Records, Small Stone Records and Sweden’s Fuzzorama Records, the band have given almost 20 years of service to Rock’n’Roll, a feat rarely realised in today’s music business.  This tour will celebrate the upcoming milestone.

June 2023 sees the Swedes travel to Australia for their first ever tour of the country.
Presented by Beats Cartel, the tour racks up nine dates in six states/territories and will see the band appear alongside some of Australia’s best talent plus the new Riff Mountain Festival in Brisbane and a double header at WA’s Spliffs’n’Riffs.

Lead singer Andreas Bengtsson says of the upcoming tour “Touring Australia for the first time is of course a huge thing for us and doing it when the band is turning 20 years old makes it even better. We’re thrilled to share the stage during this run with some of our favourite Australian bands. This will be a good one, hope to see you all at a show.

Catch Deville this Winter, making their way across the country coast to coast for what will be a fun and energetic display of European hard Rock.
