Vinny Appice commented on signing to SPV and what people can expect from Kill Devil Hill:

"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!"

Bassist Rex Brown is equally excited about joining the SPV family:

"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!"

The still untitled release is being produced by Warren Riker who is best known for his work with Down, Corrosion of Conformity, Sublime, and Cathedral.

Olly Hahn (A&R Steamhammer/SPV) on signing Kill Devil Hill:

"It`s a great pleasure to welcome Kill Devil Hill to the SPV family. It´s not only because of Rex Brown and Vinny Appice, mostly it`s because of their music and that they are a real band. Music wise they don`t neglect their past but they also give some fresh elements to our beloved music genre called Heavy Metal!"
