Devildriver Posts New Music Video Online

DevilDriver recently announced the release of their upcoming double album, "Dealing With Demons." The first volume - entitled "Dealing With Demons I" - drops on October 9 via Napalm Records and marks the band’s first release of new, original material since 2016's acclaimed "Trust No One."

Today, DevilDriver is following up on the release of the burgeoning single/video "Keep Away From Me" and the haunting single/video "Iona" with a third single - the fast-paced burner "Nest Of Vipers". Harking back to the heavy, melodic, dark groove that DevilDriver patented at their start while remaining entirely modern and fresh, "Nest Of Vipers" winds its way into the listener’s psyche with metallic chugging and southern-fried leads, gritty, grooving riffs and a heightened dose of amplified energy and intensity. Co-written by frontman Dez Fafara and guitarist Neal Tiemann, the lyrics to "Nest Of Vipers" explore themes of true loyalty and the notion that friendship is not a commodity for sale!

Frontman Dez Fafara says about "Nest Of Vipers" and working with guitarist Neal Tiemann on their first lyrical collaboration: "This is my first co-written lyric on any DevilDriver track with another band member, penned with our guitarist Neal Tiemann. Working with Neal is a good time. We always want what's best for the song. More...

Devildriver Cancels European Tour

It is with great regret that Devildriver have sadly been forced to have to cancel their European tour in September / October 2019. This is due to unexpected circumstances, completely out of the control of the band, which means that the band is left with no choice but to cancel all of these shows.

The band would like to stress that they hate cancelling anything and in 20 years of touring the world, they have never cancelled a tour before and are certainly not a band that want to mess their fans or their promoters around. The band and the management would like to apologise to all their fans that had already bought tickets for the tour. Those tickets can be refunded at their original point of purchase. Devildriver promise that they will make this up to fans and promoters alike when they return to Europe in 2020 with a show bigger and better than ever before.
