Devil You Know have offered an explanation for changing their name to Light The Torch. The main reason was due to “member issues and legalities .”
The band said the following:
“After member issues and legalities continued for a year with no end in sight, we collectively felt it was time to put DYK to rest. Every effort was made to avoid this decision, but it needed/had to be done for the sake of moving forward. We will be forever grateful to those of you who shared that journey with us.
With that said, we decided that this was a perfect time to write and record something truly different, something that reflected what we have been through and what we have become. Our new album is almost done being mixed, and there will be many more details coming in the following days and weeks. We are LIGHT THE TORCH. See you soon.”
They also added:
“LIGHT THE TORCH will absolutely continue to perform Devil You Know songs and, the only way to legally continue would be under this course of action.”
The band’s new album will be released this year via Nuclear Blast.
