“A hard rock pulse but The Dev brings more than just your standard hard rock sound. Their sound is a marriage of alternative and hard rock that is leading the way and carving a new path. “Shameless Life” their latest release spins a tale and reflects not only a forceful video but encapsulates the talent this band has. Working currently with MVK Music Group, The Dev is showing once again what they have to offer. Nikollaj vocals lead throughout and the emotional aspects are defining a story that The Dev so aptly tells. Rock this one hard, and turn it up.” – Carl Fuller
Shaking the hard rock music scene with their original sound and expressive oddity, THE DEV presents its 3rd massive single, “Shameless Life”.
Members of THE DEV use their self-expression and collaborative talents to create a new brand of hard rock – a kind that doesn’t conform to the norm, adding a bit of edge to the well-known styles of rock n’ roll. A compelling combination of charisma and fury makes THE DEV a force to be reckoned with.
This talented group of musicians left a notable impression on the media after the release of their debut single, “Broken Lies” was named single of the week by AltPress Magazine. Their second single, “Queen of The Damned” similarly made an impressive entrance with the release of its music video, also highlighted in AltPress Magazine.
Both singles revealed a significant rise in numbers for THE DEV, with over 120k Spotify streams and music video views on YouTube. Along with the influx of attention from the media, the band has been featured in various music blogs, playlists, magazines, radio, and more.
Although 2020 came with many uncertainties for the live entertainment industry, THE DEV was able to take their music career to the next level. Their emerging success earned them a signed management contract with MVK Music Group and the title of Best Rock Act 2020 from Orlando Weekly magazine. Additionally, the band secured endorsement deals with respected companies including WB Gear, SJC Drums, SIT Strings, Hayward Drums, Saluda Cymbals, In-Tune Guitar Pics, Collision Drum Sticks, Maverick Apparel Co, Timber Creek Distillery, and RAZE Energy drinks.
The band hopes to find more success as the live music and touring industry slowly returns in the upcoming months. Until then, THE DEV continues to work toward building their online presence and cannot wait to release more music and art for the DEVoted fans.
