Windsor’s ‘Autumn Kings’ earn a spot on the Wings’ playlist

According to the CTV News Windsor, a band from Windsor, Ontario has found their latest single in heavy rotation at Red Wings games:

The Autumn Kings song “Devil in Disguise” has been in rotation during the Wings pre-season games, and the band hopes it will be the exclusive goal song as the NHL regular season kicks off on Thursday.

“It started with a cold email to one of the people working at the organization,” says lead guitarist Jake Diab. “We simply sent them our track and said ‘What do you think?’ Everyone’s telling us on our high school tour and all of our fans that this is the perfect hockey song.”

Diab says the decision hasn’t been made yet, but for him it is still an honour.

“I’m a life-long Wings fan. It was my dream go to the NHL when I was younger,” says Diab. “That ended up falling though the cracks, but you know what we made up for it in other ways. We’re getting played in the arena now.”

Continued, and here’s their tune:
