Former Coal Chamber front man Dez Fafara's new band DEVILDRIVER will be recorded in New York City on February 27th. The footage will be used in an upcoming episode of "Headbangers Ball" on MTV2. They will be playing Irving Plaza in NYC later that night with OPETH. The date for this footage to air is not known yet, but should be announced soon.
To add a little bit of my opinion to this article, everyone out there should check out this tour. OPETH is an extremely talented band, whether you like them for their raw metallic riffs, or for the pure genius and challenging intricacies put forth in their music. Along with DEVILDRIVER, MOONSPELL is also on this tour.
Here's the full schedule of dates for the upcoming Opeth, Moonspell, Devildriver tour, in which two have been added since last time. One in Oklahoma and another in Florida:
Sweden's Opeth will be returning to North America for another headlining tour beginning next month.
The trek, which is tentatively scheduled to kick off on January 18 and run through the end of February, will feature Portugal's Moonspell in the opening slot and another, as-yet-announced act as direct support (previously scheduled support band Nevermore have since dropped off the bill).
So far, only one date has been announced via Ticketmaster: January 28 at Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona. The rest of the cities and dates are expected to be confirmed by the end of the week. More...
