On Friday (6), Devil You Know release their sophomore album, They Bleed Red. A sport that has a lot of blood in it is boxing. If you were to associate a song with boxing, it would probably be Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” the theme song to 1982’s Rocky III. That song was a #1 hit for six weeks that year, and while it’s probably not going to be in Creed, the forthcoming seventh film in the Rocky franchise, Devil You Know did cover the song for They Bleed Red. Did the iconic song need a metalcore update? It sure didn’t. It sounds a little over-processed and unnecessary to us, but depending on your tolerance and appreciation of Howard Jones, maybe you’ll dig it.
They Bleed Red is out on November 6 on Nuclae Blast and can be preordered here.
