History and lineup Edit
Thomas Oxley, Quentin Chaplin and Blake Rice played together in a high school band from 2001 up to 2005. They decided to focus fully on their musical career soon after they graduated. In 2006 they started to perform under the name of 'Devil In The Details', an idiom Chaplin picked up when gathering legal advice. In lineup with various drummers the threesome played at local bands and became a regular at the Blackburn University college radio. In 2008 Hugo Richards became the band's permanent drummer and also managed to sign the band a contract at an independent studio. In October 2009 the band came out with their first studio album, Deliberately Drowning, which became a moderate commercial success. Their single Woman Beneath The Waves even reached #12 in the EastWest Top 25. In 2010, the band switched its independent label for Red Horse Records due to a fight over what Oxley called 'the artistic right to freedom'. The breakthrough to the big public is expected to come as the band releases their new album On The Lookout in February 2011.
The music and lyrics are written by Oxley and Chaplin. The band changes his lineup according to the needed instrumentals and performed with various drummers until Richards became a permanent member of the band. A history of the general lineup since 2006:
