DEVIL YOU KNOW, the band fronted by former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Howard Jones, has changed its name to LIGHT THE TORCH. The group says: “A full statement will be made soon and a new album is very close to being completed. It’s a new beginning and we couldn’t be more excited.”
It is speculated that DEVIL YOU KNOW‘s name change was prompted by a dispute with the band’s former drummer, John Sankey, who left the group in June 2016.
In addition to Jones, LIGHT THE TORCH features guitarist Francesco Artusato (ALL SHALL PERISH) and bassist Ryan Wombacher (BLEEDING THROUGH).
DEVIL YOU KNOW released two albums through Nuclear Blast Entertainment: 2014’s “The Beauty Of Destruction” and 2015’s “They Bleed Red”.
