Kill Devil Hill is an American hard rock supergroup, founded in 2011 by drummer Vinny Appice (former Black Sabbath, Heaven & Hell, and Dio), bassist Rex Brown (former Pantera and Down), guitarist Mark Zavon, and lead vocalist Dewey Bragg. The band is named after the town of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, a location renowned from pirating days.
The band's sound has been described as "heavy and modern without succumbing to typical contemporary hardcore trappings – indecipherable vocals or overused blast beats."
The band performed on Motörhead's Boat Cruise in September 2014 and after touring, the band started to write another album with their new member Johnny Kelly. They decided to record at Stagg Street Studios in California with help from engineer Josh Newell (Linkin Park, In This Moment).
