Devine Electric is an Australian Hard Rock band formed in Sydney, N.S.W. 2005.
Emerging through the breakup of bands: Tommy Gun (Eli, Ivor), Dark Order (Zoran), Powerhead (Paul) and Zino who was at the wrong place at the right time.
At a time when pretentious and lack lustre acts were dominating the local Sydney venues- Devine Electric brought a raw and uplifting form of dirty rock crashing back into the local scene.
All band members have often been noted for their diversity and range in song writing; from their hard edged “It Happens All The Time”, “Rock Bottom”, to the more vulnerable and sensitive “Sweet Temptation” and “Don’t Lie To Me”.
Devine Electric’s music is solid, bluesy, raw and honest- everything a good hard rock band should be.
After a successful year together, which included scoring major supports (Rose Tattoo) and being picked up by Big Deal Inc (Michael Browning- AC/DC, Noiseworks, Sam Righi- Frontier Touring Company and Harbour Agency); the quick rise to success eventually lead to tensions and division within the band, leading to its demise soon after.
After a 2 year hiatus, the smoke cleared and the realisation of a good thing shone through. Bit by bit, the Band regrouped and all issues were left at the door- emerging stronger than ever.
Following a string of successful comeback gigs, the band recorded and released (on a shoestring budget) their debut E.P. “Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Piece” and “Excuse The Mess” while continuing to showcase their musical flair and striking visual presence supporting Pretty Boy Floyd in 2009 and sell-out 2010 tour with Stryper on the east coast of Oz.
Great reviews and accolades followed from the Australian press and abroad:
“Good old fashioned classic rock, proving Australia has much more to deliver than Airbourne and AC/DC” Powerplay magazine U.K.(September 2011).
Early 2012 saw the departure of guitarist Zino. Deciding to continue as a four piece, the band recorded their third E.P. simply titled Devine Electric which featured crowd favourites “Don’t Feel Like Home” & “Sweet Temptation”. On the back of their best work to date, more international supports came their way with the Lost Angels tour in late 2012, also Lita Ford and ex Guns “n” Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke in 2013.
