Purveyors of dark and ragged country fuelled rock, Perth's Kill Devil Hills will make their Dashville Skyline debut this year.

The Kill Devil Hills formed in sun-bleached Perth, Western Australia, in 2003 as a quiet acoustic project by founding members Brendon Humphries, Steve Joines and Steve Gibson, but that was a dumb idea (too quiet) and didn't last very long, quickly swelling ranks like a looming tide, until 15 years and a few divorces later it has settled down (sort of) as six-piece juggernaut of tuneful cacophony, beautiful bastard noise, ugly but honest ballads, and gene-spliced sonic travesties - in other words, a rock band with a heart of mud and coal.

Four albums (and a fifth about to drop), a few 7"s, a live record, several band members, a few laps of the planet and some late late nights later, the band has toured Australia, playing major festivals, venues of all sizes, with bands of all ranges, from the Beasts of Bourbon, the Dirty Three, the Drones, through to Jolie Holland and Justin Townes Earle, in the process finding themselves roaming Canada, the US and most parts of Western Europe.

Now that journey brings them to Dashville - you don't want to miss it.
