DEVILDRIVER Drummer Falls Ill; DAATH's KEVIN TALLEY Steps In
February 7, 2011
Santa Barbara, California metallers DEVILDRIVER have enlisted the services of drummer Kevin Talley (DAATH, SIX FEET UNDER, ex-CHIMAIRA) as a temporary replacement for John Boecklin, who has apparently fallen ill.
Fan-filmed footage of Talley performing with DEVILDRIVER last night (Sunday, February 6) in Chicago, Illinois can be seen below.
Talley previously filled in for Boecklin during DEVILDRIVER's appearance at the one-day Ozzfest in August 2008 in Dallas, Texas due to the fact that John was getting married the next day.
"Bring The Fight (To The Floor)", a brand new song from DEVILDRIVER's forthcoming fifth album, "Beast", is available for streaming below (courtesy of RevolverMag.com). Due on February 22 via Roadrunner Records, the CD was recorded at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas with producer Mark Lewis (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, ALL THAT REMAINS) and was mixed by acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY) at his Backstage studio in Derbyshire, England. The band recorded 14 songs during the "Beast" sessions, with 12 tracks making the standard version of the CD and all 14 songs appearing on the special edition, which also comes with a bonus DVD. The special edition includes the band's documentary "You May Know Us From The Stage" (shot by filmmaker Daniel J. Burke, a.k.a. Bruce Wayne) and official music videos spanning DEVILDRIVER's career thus far.
