There are several bands using this name:
1) Device is an industrial metal band started by David Draiman, frontman of the hard rock group Disturbed. Draiman was approached by Geno Lenardo, former guitarist of Filter, and together they started to work on new material. The two started work on a debut album in June 2012. The result of those sessions, Device, is scheduled for release on April 9, 2013. The first single "Vilify" was released to radio ahead of the album on February 19, 2013.
2) Device was the brainchild of 80s songwriter wunderkind Holly Knight. Knight was a prolific songwriter in the United States’ 80s, penning hits for Pat Benatar (Love is a Battlefield and Invincible), Animotion (Obsession and I Engineer), Tina Turner (The Best and Better Be Good To Me) and Aerosmith (Rag Doll).
Holly Knight (vocals, keyboards and bass) founded the band in 1986 with Paul Engemann (lead vocals) and Gene Black (guitar). They released their one and only album 22B3 in the spring of 1986. It produced a Top 40 single in the U.S. with Hanging On a Heart Attack, which peaked at #35. The band's second single Who Says peaked at #79. Both of these songs were promoted by music videos which garnered MTV rotation and both were released as 12" singles with remix and dub versions which received club play. A third and final single When Love is Good was released while the album peaked at #73 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Mike Chapman produced the album.
After their split in 1987 Knight went on with her solo project, whilst successfully writing songs for celebrated artists, while Engemann joined Animotion as their new male lead vocalist.
