Rex Brown And Vinny Appice’s Kill Devil Hill Signs To SPV/Steamhammer

Posted by on September 28, 2011

After lots of speculation, it was finally confirmed that Rex Brown was no longer in Down. And now, thanks to another announcement made today, we see that Kill Devil Hill, the band also featuring drummer Vinny Appice, guitarist Mark Zavon (Ratt, W.A.S.P., 40 Cycle Hum) and singer Dewey Bragg, really has become the former Pantera bassist’s main focus as of late.

It was announced today that Kill Devil Hill have signed a new recording deal with SPV/Steamhammer Records. The supergroup will release their still untitled debut album, which is being produced by Warren Riker (Down, Corrosion Of Conformity, Cathedral), in March of 2012.

Brown had the following to say about signing with SPV:

“It is with a great pleasure to be aboard the SPV Music Blanket.  We are looking forward to a great new experience with a label that has put out many great metal records.  Cheers!”

Appice added the following:

“We are a new band with the power, energy and history to stand out, create music and be successful. We are proud to be with SPV, a label with the same attitude, talent and drive!”

Kill Devil Hill have been working on their debut album with Riker, but will be taking a short break to embark on a club tour starting this Sunday (October 2) in Clifton, NJ. You can check out an entire rundown of the band’s tour dates after the jump.
