Brit goth hard rockers The Devil In Faust set loose their brand new single “Soulmate” today, taken from their engulfing debut EP, Come Apart, out on Friday 28th April.
The Devil In Faust were born at the end of 2014 and conceived by old school friends Al Pritchard (vocals/guitar) & Ben Codd (drums). The two piece quickly began to play a batch of shows in their local area before releasing their debut video single, “Dark Places”. Following the online success of “Dark Places”, TDIF went on to release further singles during 2015: “Forsaken” and “So Clever”. All three singles gained sturdy support from BBC Introducing.
In 2016, the band continued to perform a slew of dates. Shows with Dani Filth’s Devilment and Sinnergod only added greater stock to the band’s rising cause, as did support from underground sources such as Uberrock, TBFM, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing and Blank TV, to name a select few. With their live reputation on the up, TDIF were invited to record in Aarhus, Denmark with Tue Madsen (Moonspell, Meshuggah, Sick of it All). They demoed twelve tracks and decided on four choice cuts, which were shaped and carefully crafted to create the band’s debut EP.
Since their inception, The Devil In Faust had experienced difficulty in trying to hold down a permanent bassist. However, all this changed when Al was introduced to Jess by Dave Catching at an Eagles of Death Metal show. Jess showed interest in joining TDIF, and after just a couple of rehearsals, the band transpired.
With a solidified line-up, the trio are prepared to release their debut EP Come Apart, which lands this April. The EP offers four tracks of intoxicating alt-rock baked with hooky refrains and gothic undertones. The band forthcoming new single “Soulmate” brims with jack-hammer refrains and angsty venom, and perfectly showcases TDIF. The darkly rockers are sure to break and you want to be around when it happens.
