Devour the Day is an American Rock band founded by former Egypt Central members Joey `Chicago´ Walser and Blake Allison last year. Their debut Time and Pressure was released early this year and the band are currently on tour in the US.
I was lucky enough to catch up with Joey whilst he was on the road (literally) travelling between shows, so we kept it short but sweet.
Devour the Day are going to be doing some shows alongside Hinder, Candlebox and Open Air Stereo this month and Chicago spoke of his excitement for the tour. `I cant wait for that tour, Its almost like a family atmosphere with those guys.´
He went on to explain how he warms up for shows. `I stretch out, get limber and take a moment alone to get into the zone and get ready to have that side of me come out.´
Midway through we had to take a quick unplanned break due to Chicago not wanting to be pulled over by a cop, which had us in stitches before we continued forward.
Chicago adds `I´m actually blown away by the response for our debut and its such a blessing. We have actually done this all by ourselves all the way through.´
I couldn’t resist to ask the question of whether Europe are going to be blessed with the musical talents of Devour the Day and the response was as follows. `Absolutely! That is a huge section of my life that is unfulfilled and we want to go all over the world.´
Chicago closed on `We want to be honest and pure with Devour the Day and the name is a mantra that will push us everyday.´
