We just talked with Eric Park about Devourment getting rejected in London, England. Apparently, nobody told the band they needed temporary work visa's to play the booked UK shows. The band was detained in a holding cell for 10 hours and then shipped back home. To add insult to injury, we have also been told the crowds were at maximum capacity and chanting "Devourment", only to learn about the situation later. The band is back in Texas and scheduled to fly out tomorrow for Germany and they are confident there will be no more issues.
We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Eric on his endorsement with Trick Drums ! Joining other extreme drummers like: Dave Witte and John Longstreth, Eric is already playing the Pro1-V pedals and will be working on a custom kit after the Euro tour.
We try not to post video clips on the front page anymore, because sometimes it slows the loading time down. This video just kills us and wanted as many people to see it as possible. Romain Goulon is a crazy, crazy drummer and has an interview on our site. Please check out his band(s) and you will soon be seeing him on the GrindStix Artist Roster.....
