Sludge/stoner metal act DEVIL'S SON-IN-LAW has announced plans to film a video for their song "Seaworthy" with director Gary Smithson (HIGH ON FIRE, EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, EYES OF FIRE, GOATWHORE, EXODUS, TOMAHAWK). The video shoot will tentatively take place on Saturday September 29, 2007 in Los Angeles, California and is expected for an early 2008 release.
DEVIL'S SON-IN-LAW recently released a limited-edition CD/EP through Canada's Moshpit Tragedy Records. The first press of this self-titled five-song EP is limited to 100 hand-numbered, screenprinted copies in a mini-vinyl sleeve as part of the label's "DIY Series." The entire EP is also being offered for free as a high-quality download complete with cover art from www.moshpit-tragedy.com.
Beginning as an instrumental project between childhood friends from Detroit, Michigan, the band later relocated to Oakland, California before assuming the name (taken from the Rudy Ray Moore film "Peetey Wheatstraw") DEVIL'S SON-IN-LAW in 2005. Although heavily influenced by bands like SLEEP, NEUROSIS, EYEHATEGOD, and ASUNDER, their style is also heavily drawn from blues slide guitar and early psychedelic rock. Many of their early pieces were improvisational and experimental, but would be the essence of today's sound.
DEVIL'S SON-IN-LAW is scheduled to perform alongside Portland, Oregon crust act HELLSHOCK on October 10 at Gilman Street Club in Berkeley, California.
