Light the Torch (name change from Devil You Know as of July 26, 2017) is a metal supergroup from Los Angeles, California that was formed during 2012. The band, signed to Nuclear Blast Records, released their full-length debut The Beauty of Destruction on April 24, 2014; a year after, they followed that up with They Bleed Red. Light the Torch started when drummer John Sankey (Devolved, Divine Heresy, Fear Factory) and guitarist Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish, Hiss of Atrocities) began jamming and writing together in 2012. After 30 to 40 song ideas were written the two decided to look for a vocalist. A couple of early demo recordings were sent to Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage, Blood Has Been Shed) who subsequently got interested and joined the band in late2012. In early 2013 the band started recording with producer and ex-Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader (Gojira, Five Finger Death Punch). On October 23, 2013 it was announced the band signed to Nuclear Blast. A day later the first demo song "Shut It Down" was released online through the band's Facebook page. On October 31, 2013 the demo was released officially through the label YouTube channel. On December 19, 2013 it was announced that the band finished recording of the album and that bassist Ryan Wombacher (Bleeding Through) and guitarist Roy Lev-Ari (Hiss of Atrocities) joined the band. « hide
