The Devil is dedicated to unearthing unknown, unheard, unseen, unheralded, unfamiliar or down right unbelievable bands old or new that have not yet hit the radars of the British public. If you are a new band or artist and would like to be considered for inclusion then please contact me via email or twitter.
Listen to Unravelling, We Were Promised Jetpacks third album, and you can see why U2 had to force their album on anyone unfortunate enough to have an iTunes account. Unravelling pisses all over U2 from a great height.
There's more emotion, more passion, more artistic merit in the first chords of Peaks and Troughs than U2's entire back catalogue. Bono this is the sound of artistic integrity but you probably won't be able to hear it over the sound of the cash registers ringing. Peace of Mind is the closest the band come to U2's widescreen indie but where Bono and his motley crew are pompous and self important the Scottish 5 piece are grand and triumphant.
Far from unravelling their third album finds We Were Promised Jetpacks more united than ever. This is a collection of songs tailor made for next year's festivals. We Were Promised Jetpacks are flying.
