“We have decided to part ways with drummer John Sankey and will be back on the road this fall. We are NOT taking any unsolicited drummer audition videos. Big news in the coming weeks!!!”

Original Story:

Drummer John Sankey has exited Devil You Know, having been absent from the band’s recent touring in order to establish an upcoming crowdfunded heavy musical festival named ‘Legion‘ in Australia. Sankey commented on the matter:

“After communications over the last few weeks, my band Devil You Know and I have decided that I move on from my role as drummer.

I’m currently working on establishing the Legion Open Air Music Festival in Australia and with imminent major announcements coming in the near future I simply no longer have the time to commit to both projects.

I have lived abroad in Los Angeles for 15 years dedicating 100% of my time and energy on my career as a touring musician and have lived out my dreams performing all over the world.

I am now ready to pursue other avenues and am very excited for a change where I can use my experience and knowledge of the industry to help provide the Australian metal and hard rock scene with a new live music platform.

I’m extremely proud of being a founding member of Devil You Know and will always respect what we have achieved, it’s been an awesome ride and I wish Hojo, Fran and Womby nothing but the best as they continue to kick ass into the future!”
