DEVOUR THE DAY (Feat. Former Members Of Egypt Central) Debut Album, ‘Time & Pressure,’ Out Now; Tour Dates With Sevendust Confirmed


May 7, 2013 — DEVOUR THE DAY (@devourtheday)–featuring former Egypt Central members Joey “Chicago” Walser (bass, backing vocals, songwriter) and Blake Allison (lead vocals, guitars, drums, producer, co-songwriter)–released their highly anticipated debut album, TIME & PRESSURE, today on Fat Lady Music.  It’s now streaming in its entirety on Revolver magazine’s website, which can be found here:  Lyric videos for “Good Man” as well as “Handshakes To Fistfights” can be found on the band’s YouTube page here:

The first single, “Good Man,” has already sold close to 10,000 singles online, and has been heating up the Active Rock radio airwaves since its release last month, and as a result, it’s currently bulleted at #29 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart and is bulleted at #32 on Billboard‘s Active Rock Tracks chart.  It’s getting spins SiriusXM’s “Octane” channel (where it was the #2 most played song last week and is currently #13 and climbing on the weekly “Big Uns” countdown), WIYY (Baltimore), WJJO (Madison), WIIL (Chicago), WBUZ (Nashville), KILO (Colorado Springs), WBYR (Fort Wayne), WQBK (Albany), WWBN (Flint) and others.  Program Directors at stations around the country have been chiming in about their excitement about the new music:

“’Good Man’ is a stand out song from the first listen.  Egypt Central was a big band for 98Rock, and the early signs are this could be bigger!  I wanna be a ‘Good Man!’” – Steve Huber – WIYY/98Rock (Baltimore MD)

“’Good Man’ is already Top 5 phones! This song sticks out and sounds awesome on the air.” – Tony LaBrie – WWBN/Banana 101.5 (Flint, MI)

Awesome song!  Already getting good research.  It’s nice to get a solid record like this to play, and I feel it’s going to be a big hit in Colorado Springs.” – Jack Mehoff, KILO (Colorado Springs, CO) described the album as a “…powerful wall of sound,” while noted, “TIME & PRESSURE does justice to their reputation for crafting great rocks songs with an empowering message” and Ampkicker raved, “This is a brutally good record.”  And agrees:  “TIME & PRESSURE is an album filled with in-your-face lyrics, guitar driven tracks, and an energy that keeps the listener on their toes throughout the entire duration of the album.”

In touring news, DEVOUR THE DAY will perform their first-ever concert in Flint, MI on Saturday, May 11 at the Machine Shop, followed by shows with Buckcherry and Hinder, as well as a trek with Sevendust and Otherwise.  Joining Allison and Walser on the road will be Bury Your Dead/Walls of Jericho drummer Dustin Schoenhofer and former Egypt Central guitarist Jeff James.
