After stand out shows at SxSW New York rocker Devin has announced a nationwide Australian tour to follow up his triple j feature album 'Romancing'. Armed with his catchy hit single "Masochist", Devin is set to wow audiences around the country displaying why he has been named one of NME's "20 Acts That Will Matter in 2012".

Devin has received a wave of praise following his performances in Austin as part of SxSW, with Time Out New York declaring "As a leader, he is a breath of fresh air, tinged by the scent of Old Spice and the feel of a silk leopard-print button-down".
Recording all of the songs from 'Romancing' at his home, and then at a studio with Chris Zane (who has recently worked on albums for Friendly Fires, Mumford and Sons, Passion Pit, The Walkmen and Les Savy Fav), Devin describes the making of the album as crazy. "That was the term "crazy" was the word of the whole recording process. It doesnt have to be good; it just has to be crazy."
PRESS FOR DEVIN
SOUR MASH "From his classic rock, punk-infused tunes to his onstage swagger it was no wonder we fell in love immediately."
THE BRICK "Everything on Romancing has an untouched classic rock vibe to it."
THE DAILYRIND "He is a rising star that is not to be missed!"
AUDIOCRED "4/5 Fast, cryptic, and unpredictable, it's everything that young love should be."
THE GUARDIAN "This ain't no hipster disco, this ain't no foolin' around. Think instead of the debut releases, the sort that demand use of the epithet 'seminal', by those sacred 'S' bands Stones, Stooges, Smiths, Strokes. Rock'n'roll not just revisited but reinstated as a matter of principle."
TIME OUT NEW YORK "The meeting point between Jack White and David Johansen. We're totally sold on Devin."
'Romancing' is out now through Inertia
