Kill Devil Hill interview with Dewey Bragg
This month, Kill Devil Hill unleashed its sophomore album, “Revolution Rise“. The band’s first for new label, Century Media Records. The guys are currently on a west coast tour in support of the record, and vocalist Jason “Dewey” Bragg took the time to check in with Metalholic from Seattle and to chat about the new record, the new label, his path to music, and why he pinches himself every night.
Bragg joined the pairing of legendary drummer Vinnie Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath) and guitarist Mark Zavon (Ratt, W.A.S.P.) in creating the nucleus of Kill Devil Hill. Former Pantera and Down bassist Rex Brown added the final piece. Bragg talks about Brown joining the fray:
“When Rex first auditioned for the band he put bass on ‘War Machine’, and I was on the 405 freeway and I had to pull over the car in the breakdown. I was like ‘Holy Christ.’ I was floored by that sound. I grew up listening to Pantera and having that bass tone on my right hand side every night is just amazing.”
Bragg talks about how smoothly the new album came together, what it was like to work with Jeff Pilson, and how the events of the last year impacted his songwriting for the record. You can check out the full interview below and read our review of “Revolution Rise“.
