DEVILDRIVER, the Santa Barbara, California-based band featuring former COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara, has entered Sonic Ranch studios in El Paso, Texas to begin recording its third album, tentatively due next summer via Roadrunner Records. "We got to Sonic Ranch three days ago, loaded in and began getting drum tones yesterday," Dez writes in an online posting. "In two days, [John] Boecklin [drums] has laid down 10 tracks! We will be done tomorrow with drums and then move on to guitar tones and begin tracking them Saturday.
"It's been a killer time so far!
"Tune in on Monday to get the link for our DEVILDRIVER YouTube [channel] that launches on the 20th. We will do daily updates as well as show you what's going on here, what we do for a break... like shooting 357 magnums near the border of Mexico. GOOD TIMES, MAN!"
As previously reported, a seven-minute audio interview with Dez Fafara, conducted recently by Andrew Haug of Triple J's "Full Metal Racket" (based in Australia),can be downloaded at this location (3 MB).
Roadrunner Records released a "special edition" of DEVILDRIVER's "The Fury Of Our Maker's Hand" CD on October 31. More information is available at this location.
