DEVILDRIVER Frontman Says New CD Is 'Totally Balls-Out'

May 25, 2007

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara (ex-COAL CHAMBER) recently spoke to about the group's third album, "The Last Kind Words" (cover),due on July 31 via Roadrunner Records.

"The 'last kind words' could be 'f--- you' before complete annihilation," Fafara said. "For me, this album is about being motivated to stand up to the punishment of being a human and to have the character in you to go on when all people want to do is hold you down."

"Lyrically, it's dark and foreboding," Fafara added. "But it's gonna give you inspiration to go through this earthly experience and keep kicking."

"I think we knew we had to reach within ourselves as a team and pull something out that was really different. Everyone totally put aside their egos and stepped up to the plate to do what needed to be done. In America right now, there's so much of that sing-songy metal going on, so we knew if we did something totally balls-out it was going to be well-received."


DEVILDRIVER has just filmed the first video for its new song "Not All Who Wander Are Lost" in Los Angeles with director Nathan Cox (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MARILYN MANSON, SYSTEM OF A DOWN). The clip is expected to be released in a few weeks.

DEVILDRIVER is currently on the road with black-metal titans, DIMMU BORGIR, UNEARTH and KATAKLYSM until May 29, winning over audiences with brooding tenacity. DEVILDRIVER will then launch a month-long European tour on June 1 and will also be attending the Metal Hammer awards in London on June 11.
