Montreal-based psychedelic rock trio A Devil’s Din will issue their third official full-length album this Friday, Sept. 29th. ‘One Hallucination Under God‘ is the lysergic-laced long-playing follow-up to ‘Skylight’ (2016) and ‘One Day All This Will Be Yours’ (2011). Riff Relevant is one of the few websites where you can stream this amazing album now, several days before its release.
A Devil’s Din is the psychedelic brainchild of UK-born / Montreal-based multi-instrumentalist David Lines. He is joined on his creative journey by a disciple of the Rickenbaker bass Thomas Chollet and virtuoso drummer Dom Salameh. The trio oozes heady, halcyon music inspired by the likes of late 60’s era Beatles, Syd Barret-era Pink Floyd, Byrds, and Led Zeppelin.
Guitarist and vocalist Dave Lines comments:
“If I had to describe the album in one word it would be: fun. There are plenty of head-boppin’ moments and there’s a really nice flow that takes you from earth to the stars and back in less than an hour. We got sweet fuzzed-out guitar tones, harmonies, melodies, hooks…and gongs!
It’s a nice ride. And embedded throughout are certain words and phrases designed to elicit new ideas, widen the field of perception, and inspire a more cosmic outlook on life. Which is also fun. Especially on acid. It’s an incredible place to be as an artist: creatively free, without any limitations, so we can offer the world our fun and fuzzy freakadelic rock music.”
