Hailing from the dark streets of East London, Devilish Presley has become a significant force on the gothic-punk scene in the UK & Europe during the last ten years. Their live shows are legendary and a work ethic which included self releasing five albums – all of which have sold well and gathered excellent reviews – has seen them tour with music legends like The Damned and The Meteors.
The band have now released their fifth album which was recorded at London’s Berry St studio with producer Kevin Poree (Memphisto & Disgraceland). Working up a set of fast and furious dark flavoured gothic-punk songs a more personal style of lyrics has now developed, covering sex, drugs, humour, alienation and of course horror.
Devilish Presley was formed as a two-piece by Jacqui Vixen and Johnny Navarro in 2003 and they were soon adopted by the UK goth scene with the albums Rust Garden (2003) and Disgraceland (2004) – but they very quickly widened their appeal. Johnny was chosen as back-up guitar player by Meteors frontman P.Paul Fenech and toured Europe with him in (2008). It was this unique abillity to cross over between genres that informed the critically acclaimed albums Memphisto (2006) and Flesh Ride (2008) and saw them become the support act on nineteen dates with The Damned in 2008.
The new album titled "The Dark Triad" was released on May 9th 2011.
