The Charm City Devils are a hard rock band from Baltimore, Maryland. The band was founded by singer/songwriter and former Child's Play and SR-71 drummer John Allen and includes bassist Anthony Arambula, drummer Jason Heiser, and guitarists Victor Karrera and Nick Kay (also of Child's Play).


The band was first signed to Eleven Seven Music in 2009. After signing with Eleven Seven Music, Mötley Crüe bassist and Eleven Seven Music chairman, Nikki Sixx, suggested the band's current name Charm City Devils.

Their debut album Let's Rock-N-Roll was released in 2009. The band released two singles from their debut album: "Let's Rock n' Roll (Endless Road)" and "Best of the Worst". They were named BEST NEW ROCK BAND by iTunes for 2009.[1] "Let's Rock n' Roll (Endless Road)" reached #40 on Billboard' s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

On January 25, 2012 Charm City Devils announced the release of a new single,[2] a cover of "Man Of Constant Sorrow," from their forthcoming release "Sins" on new label Fat Lady Music. "Man Of Constant Sorrow" reached #25 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The band's second album Sins was released April 10, 2012. Sins was recorded at Sound Kitchen Studios in Nashville and produced by Grammy-winning producer Skidd Mills.

"Unstoppable" was used by WWE as the official theme song to the returning No Way Out 2012 pay-per-view event,[3] and reached #36 on Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.

In late 2013 the band began work on their follow up to Sins once again teaming up with Grammy-winning producer Skidd Mills.[4] The new album, entitled Battles will be released on September 23, 2014 via The End Records.[4] On July 29, 2014 the first single from the new album, "Shots", was released.[5]
