It’s said that some of the greatest bands of our time have been forged on the road, Devilfire is no exception…
…Devilfire began in Birmingham during a studio session in 2013 when producer Alex Cooper (Shy, Spike of the Quireboys, Ginger) was working with with Uli Jon Roth drummer Lars Wickett. Alex revealed his grand plan for a Birmingham based melodic rock band and gave Lars a taster of the kind of music he was working on. Lars suggested they should approach Davey Bennett (Pop Will Eat Itself) which they did however; due to touring commitments and production schedules 3 long years passed, filled with writing and planning , before, in 2016, things finally fell into place.
2017 saw them gigging to 2000 capacity sold out venues supporting Tarja in Europe plus a sold out festival crowd at Hard Rock Hell AOR was the icing on the cake. Their debut album, released in Oct 2017 was very well received by reviewers.
After a couple of changes to the line up Devilfire is now Alex Cooper (Vocals), Baz Blackett (Guitar), Lars Wickett (Drums), Jay Downes (Bass) & Kieran Topp (Guitar)
