The Devastated comments, “Happy Holidays everyone! With what has been an eventful 2012 for The Devastated, we would like to wind down the year with a few exciting announcements. First and foremost, we are very pleased to announce the addition of our new bassist David Sittig (Impending Doom). David has been a close friend of ours for many years and we are proud to have him aboard. With that, we would also like to announce a Holiday mini-tour December 27-30 with Polarization and Wrath of Vesuvius. These will be David’s first shows with The Devastated, so please come out and show some love. On a final note, we would like to leave you with our Latest track ‘Grate Minds’, a B-side recorded during the same time as our debut record ‘Devil’s Messenger.’ Enjoy! You can expect many exciting things from us in the New Year, so keep your eyes and ears open. Have a safe Holiday season and we’ll see you all very soon.”
