Devil You Know will be missing drummer John Sankey on their Make American Metal Again Tour. Taking on the vacancy will be ex-DevilDriver drummer John Boecklin. Comments both drummmers:

John Sankey: “DYK fans, I will be sitting out our upcoming US headline tour due to commitments I have in Australia as Ambassador and Co-Founder of the Legion Music Festival taking place in January 2017. It sux to miss playing these shows but being part of planning and overseeing the launch of a national music festival is an enormous task which requires all of my time and dedication right now.

Unfortunately Dave Grohl isn’t available to fill in, but don’t fear, my good buddy and drummer extraordinaire John Boecklin will be hitting the road with Hojo, Fran and Womby to rock the kit for you all each night… F#%k yea! I’ll be back from the land down under to rejoin my metal Brothers for our tour with the mighty Hatebreed and DevilDriver in May/June. See ya all on the road then” \m/”

John Boecklin: “Being a fan of DYK and its members individually, I’m beyond honored to fill in for John Sankey. Having been working on my management career and new musical project, this will be great opportunity for me to take a break and have some fun playing on stage again. I look forward to seeing friends and representing DYK behind the kit, so come on out these shows and support this heavy ass band.”
