Devil You Know have recruited former Trivium drummer Nick Augusto for their upcoming tour with Hatebreed and Devildriver.

Augusto – who was sacked by Trivium in 2014 – will be behind the kit from the first date of the North American trek on May 13 (Friday).

Devil You Know’s regular drummer John Sankey had to pull out of the band’s recent US headline tour and the upcoming shows with Hatebreed and Devildriver as he had to return to Australia to help with the planning of next year’s inaugural Legion Music Fest, of which he is co-founder and ambassador.

Former Devildriver man John Boecklin filled in on the headlining dates.

Devil You Know guitarist Francesco Artusato says: “We are very excited to start this next tour with Nick. I toured with him in the past and I’m really looking forward to play some great shows with him.”

Augusto adds: “I’m honoured to be on board as Devil You Know’s touring drummer for this massive Hatebreed and Devildriver tour.

“As being a fan of everyone in the band’s previous projects, I feel like my style will add another piece to the already growing expansion of their big, heavy and catchy sound.

“I am very excited to play their material live and see the reaction of their fans, and what kind of energy surfaces from these upcoming shows. Come out and have a good time with us.”
