Devilskin Golden Chart Success


Devilskin Golden Chart Success

Devilskin remain as the #1 Album and #1 Kiwi Artist Album for the second week in a row.

NZ rock band Devilskin’s much anticipated debut album We Rise released on July 11 and went straight to the top of the charts, the strong album sales have maintained momentum and the local band has held strong against fierce international and local competition. This ongoing success is a real coup for the independently released and distributed album.

The band are going from strength to strength with We Rise achieving Gold after only 2 weeks. Gold Certifications are awarded on the basis of wholesale sales to retailers – with the total album sales exceeding 7,500 albums.
Devilskin comments “we are absolutely over the freakin’ moon to have such amazing support for the album and the tour! To have a # 1 GOLD record is such an incredible buzz and truly an honour.”

James Southgate from Music Management says “we had a day of nervous anticipation on Friday waiting for the chart to be announced, when the news was delivered that Devilskin had retained # 1 and that it had been certified GOLD the entire team were ecstatic. The tour is going from strength to strength. The connection the band have with their fans is incredible - it’s amazing how wide the demographic of the fan base is; we have attracted scores of fans from those in their teens and mid twenties to professional couples and more mature adults, as well as your typical rock fan. Devilskin & We Rise have made a connection with people from all walks of life, truly amazing.”

To support the album release the band are currently touring the country on a 19 date We Rise NZ Tour.

Devilskin are a four piece band from Hamilton New Zealand formed in June 2010. They have quickly gained a reputation for delivering high-energy performances with blistering sets, which are sonically exciting and compelling - resulting in mesmerizing rock events.

The band features the captivating Jennie Skulander on Vocals. Jennie's incredible voice sweeps from whisper to roar, rips with power, drips with melody and captivates with sincerity. Bassist Paul Martin and Nail on lead guitar are the red bearded ‘evil twins’ and they electrify with powerful, truculent bass coupled with searing guitar riffs. Nic Martin’s spectacular drumming and driving beat lays the foundation for a gig not to be forgotten.
