DevilDriver Premiere New Single & Music Video “Iona”

DevilDriver premiere a new official music video for their new single “Iona“. It's the second track to arrive from their upcoming separately released double album “Dealing With Demons“. “Dealing With Demons I” will be released on October 09th through Napalm Records.

Comments singer Dez Fafara:

“‘Iona‘ is unlike any other DevilDriver song we’ve put out. From the frantic verses to the haunting chorus, this song is another move forward to push our sound and the listener’s ears into the fray! The chorus, ‘she carries a black rose, effigy from a story closed’, tells the story of the long dead ghost of Iona and her obsession with death represented by the black roses in her hands – each one the soul of someone she’s taken from this life on a lonely dark road, assimilating their souls into black roses, which she carries for eternity.

This theme relates to myself and ‘Dealing With Demons‘ in that, often times, we as people have a hard time ‘letting go’ of things. This can be applied to relationships, death, and so on. Iona carrying the black roses symbolizes her inability to move on – always seeking revenge. The past is exactly that – the past – it’s important to let go and not be stuck in a perpetual loop of living in it.”

Ouch. I mean, DD is one of my favs, but this is.... honestly kind of weak. I get that things and sounds change after a lineup changes, and I got over that with the last album (not the country covers, which was actually a surprisingly solid take on things) but there's something that's just not there unlike everything else.

Maybe this is just one of those tracks that doesn't click. Maybe. I'll... just blame it on 2020.
