Following DME Promotions announcement earlier this year, Devildriver will be undergoing a selection of dates outside their festival appearances in August including two exclusive Irish dates.

Devildriver released their new album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1, via Napalm Records last week, after dropping their potent cover of outlaw classic ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky‘, and ‘Copperhead Road‘, featuring 36 Crazyfists vocalist Brock Lindow. Check out the track below;

This will be the bands first time back in Ireland since their performance in the capitals Academy venue with Sylosis and Bleed From Within, back in 2014.

Devildriver frontman Dez Fafara says, “I have always loved this story of running moonshine and running from the cops, and having Brock on this song was a smart move as his unique voice is absolutely perfect for it.  I’m proud to have him on this record!

Joining Devildriver for both Belfast and Dublin dates is non-other than Dead Label who have been buried in the studio working on the follow-up to their critically acclaimed ‘Thone of Bones‘.

With a legacy that has already involved touring with some of the world’s most exciting metal acts, across three continents – not forgetting an impressive amount of critical acclaim from a host of respectable media outlets, DEAD LABEL have finally released their first new track since their highly acclaimed ‘Throne of Bones’ sophomore LP. Released on March 7th and gaining over 100-thousand views, ‘Pure Chaos’ sees DEAD LABEL capture the essence of their live sound and enhancing it in a recorded environment.

With the last three years being of significant importance, due to their debut North American 40 date tour, (which saw them perform in 30 states), DEAD LABEL gained significant international interest following a vast amount of European, UK and Irish dates, with the likes of Machine Head, Gojira, Fear Factory and Raging Speedhorn to name but a few.



A slew of Summer shows followed with appearances at festivals such as, Bloodstock (UK), main stage billing Metal Days (Slovenia), Made of Metal and Aggressive Music Festival (Czech Republic) and Gothoom Open Air (Slovakia), eventually leading to the band’s ‘Hot New Band’ feature in Metal Hammer (December, 2016 issue) and their critically acclaimed slot at 2017’s UK Download Festival. Having already performed at this years Hammerfest UK back in March, Dead Label are currently working on the follow-up to ‘Throne Of Bones’ and will be performing at this year’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival (August) in the UK.

This Place Hell will be jumping in for the Tivoli Theatre show on August 15th completing the line-up of Dead Label and Devildriver, making it the first time the Dublin five-piece will be performing at the venue. 

With the release of ‘Malice’ (2016) and a Russian tour in April 2017, the five-piece continued working on new material, only taking time out for dates with UK hardcore psychos, HECK and Employed To Serve, before the release of ‘Contempt’ (September 2017).

Their final UK appearance at Mammothfest, (Brighton, UK) in October 2017, alongside bands like Fleshgod Apocalypse and Rotting Christ, sealed the bands status as a formidable live force earning them the winning slot at this years Bloodstock Open Air Festival, thanks to their punishing performances at this years Metal 2 The Masses Ireland campaign.

Constantly moving forward and challenging their environment with their unique DIY approach to social media and audience interaction, This Place Hell have a hunger that you will struggle to find with any other band.
