Californian metal heavyweights DevilDriver have just revealed the album title, cover art and release plans for their sixth studio album, 'Winter Kills.' The frostbitten release from DevilDriver was tracked by Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, All That Remains) and is set to drop on Aug. 27.
Dez Fafara of DevilDriver and Coal Chamber was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. Fafara spoke all about DevilDriver's current trek with Gwar and their upcoming European tour with Cannibal Corpse and the band's forthcoming record, as well as being open to performing more shows with Coal Chamber. Read the full interview with Dez Fafara below:
When Gwar comes to town, all of the earthlings know to break out their white t-shirts and get ready for some gore, as these talented alien warlords put on one hell of a show. Earlier this week New Yorkers got a serious treat as DevilDriver, Cancer Bats and Legacy of Disorder graced the stage with Gwar at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg.
DevilDriver singer Dez Fafara took to Twitter yesterday (July 12) to send his love to his sister Kerri, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Today in another Tweet, which can be seen below, he announced his plans to record a benefit song for her: "Not gonna sit and do nothing while my sister faces down cancer... record a song and put it on iTunes to help her kids."
