DEVILMENT: JACKASS Star Featured on Debut Album, Third Episode of Official Album Interview Series Online!

 

DEVILMENTWitch County England’s finest, DEVILMENT featuring the master of horrors, Dani Filth (CRADLE OF FILTH, TEMPLE OF THE BLACK MOON), have announced that Bam Margera (MTV JACKASS, Viva La Bam, FUCKFACE UNSTOPPABLE) will be featured on the band’s upcoming debut album, The Great And Secret Show, which is scheduled to be released on Halloween 2014 (October 31).

Margera can be heard duetting on DEVILMENT‘s cover of the MIDNIGHT OIL classic ‘Beds Are Burning‘ which will be included as a bonus track on the limited first edition of the album.

“Having known Dani for a while now, and having him sing onstage with me at my wedding in Iceland last year, when he asked me to be a part of a song DEVILMENT were covering, I naturally jumped at the chance.” Margera said. He added, The original track was awesome, this new interpretation of it is even better and I am just stoked to be a part of Dani’s new band’s stuff, which in all honesty f**king rocks like a muthaf**king f**k!“

“It was actually on my birthday last year when the idea came to me to cover this track, as for some strange reason I kept hearing it being played on the local radio station and subsequently, a few times when I breezed into petrol stations and food stores,” said Dani Filth. 

“I’ve always liked the song since hearing it in my teens, as I think it’s very anthemic, and CRADLE OF FILTH have always been known for undertaking wacky songs and bastardising them to our own twisted ends, so with my birthday epiphany bursting upon me, I put the idea of covering the tune to the rest of the band… to a positive response. As for my good friend Bam Margera, I thought it would be cool for him to demonstrate his vocal prowess by returning a favour, for he’d had me sing with him (strangely enough, ANATHEMA’s ‘Sleepless’) at his wedding ceremony in Iceland last year and I thought it a top notch way to get him back in style! He didn’t require much persuasion… In all seriousness, it was a challenge and as a band we have given the track a slightly more psychotic edge, courtesy of pounding drums, hypnotic bass, industrial-esque guitars and a wicked keyboard melody lending it a John Carpenter/Tubular Bells ‘Exorcist’ vibe. Plus of course there’s the vocals!”

DEVILMENT also have released the third episode of the official album interview series. Check out Dani, Daniel and Lauren talking about how the band met: http://youtu.be/osuDOM_VroU or view it below.
