Devilskin say "sharing the stage with US rock giants Halestorm is going to be a real blast! Halestorm are one of the hardest working bands around, and their live show is legendary. It will definitely be the hottest tour this summer! Jennie Skulander and Lzzy Hale on the same bill, hell, the audience are in for a real treat."
