Kill Devil Hill, the new project featuring former Black Sabbath drummer Vinny Appice and ex-Pantera and Down bassist Rex Brown, have inked a record deal with SPV/Steamhammer. The band’s lineup is completed by vocalist Dew Bragg and guitarist Mark Zavon.

Appice commented on the signing by saying, “We are a new band with the power, energy, and history to stand out, create music, and be successful. We are proud to be with SPV, a label with the same attitude, talent, and drive!”

Brown was similarly enthusiastic, “It is with a great pleasure to be aboard the SPV Music Blanket. We are looking forward to a great new experience with a label that has put out many great metal records. Cheers!”
