Devilskin perform 'Pray' at the 2017 NZ Music Awards

Devilskin rocked the crowd at Auckland's Spark Arena, with a live performance of their hit 'Pray' at the 2017 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards (VNZMAs).

The Hamilton rockers, distinguishable by half of their members having shaved heads with long, brightly dyed goatee beards, were previously crowned Best Rock Act at the ceremony.

'Pray' was the first single taken from their second album, Be Like the River, which was released in 2016 and peaked at number one on the Official New Zealand Music Chart.

Although Devilskin missed out to SWIDT on the other major award they were nominated for - Best Group - their album earned Clint Murphy honours as Best Engineer at the VNZMA Artisan Awards.

The album has garnered critical acclaim internationally and on their promotional tour, Devilskin opened for Airborne and played the iconic Download Festival.
