ERIC13 of COMBICHRIST Releases Official Video for New Single "DEVIL'S HIGHWAY"
European and US Dates Announced for DEVIL’S HIGHWAY WORLD TOUR
ERIC13 (guitarist of COMBICHRIST, singer of SEX SLAVES) has released the Official Music Video for his solo single "DEVIL'S HIGHWAY" (WURMgroup). "DEVIL'S HIGHWAY", filmed on the back roads connecting Philadelphia to the New Jersey shore, was self-directed and filmed by ERIC13 and edited by Eric Bower. The single itself features Ashley Dzerigian (Filter, Ceelo Green, Adam Lambert) on bass and Chris Reeve (Filter, session work for Combichrist) on drums.
After writing about 50 rock and outlaw country songs in the last few years, I was yearning for new inspiration. I had experienced so much change in my life, and for better or worse, I looked in the mirror to face things about myself I hadn’t previously been willing to face. My new songs finally address those demons and intensely personal situations and I’ve never felt stronger or more confident with my song writing. "DEVIL’S HIGHWAY" marks the beginning of a new era in my music, and this video a desire to develop the stories even more.
Making this video was an absolute blast. I love to create new characters, dive into fantasy worlds and craft elaborate back stories. So once I found “THE SPOT”, where I did the majority of the filming, (the dilapidated house and ‘path to nowhere’) the story and scenes revealed themselves. With every shot I was uncovering this swampy underworld where I could simultaneously bury my secrets and dig up the truth." - ERIC13

ERIC13 put all of his possessions in storage, grabbed his alligator suitcase and acoustic guitar, and hopped on a one-way flight to Germany. He now spends the days travelling town to town, country to country, playing a seemingly endless string of shows, entertaining friends and strangers alike. There are two sides to the touring life of ERIC13; His position as guitar player of industrial/metal band COMBICHRIST takes him to festivals and shows around the globe 20, 30, 40 days at a time, and as a solo artist ERIC13 switches gears and tours on his own or with his backing band. It’s the DEVIL’S HIGHWAY WORLD TOUR and it continues non-stop.
All these shows, chance meetings, scenic views, tall tales and unbelievable true stories are distilled into the new DEVILS HIGHWAY era of songs. It’s darker, more introspective, and more courageous than previous output. They are the true stories and unbelievable tales of a life on the road.
