DEVILDRIVER, the Santa Barbara, California-based band featuring former COAL CHAMBER singer Dez Fafara, have posted the following message on their official web site:
"Our bass player Miller is flying in tomorrow from Boston, and Monday morning (Feb. 21) we are all going down to L.A. to shoot pics for the new record. Also, been working on artwork and we're down to two possibilities for the album cover. Other than that, we'll let you know about tours upcoming...
"Oh, and make sure to check out the April 2005 issue of Revolver. What for? See pics here and here."
DEVILDRIVER's sophomore album, "The Fury of Our Maker's Hand", is scheduled for release this spring on Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to DEVILDRIVER's 2002 critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album, "The Fury of Our Maker's Hand" will be "a much more brutal, metal release" for the quintet, according to a press release. Fafara says, "We all stepped it up for this album. It is way heavier and much faster. Expect brutality."
Produced by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH),"The Fury of Our Maker's Hand" will feature such songs as "Grinfucked", "Pale Horse", and "End of the Line". Having already toured on the 2004 Ozzfest as well as with SUPERJOINT RITUAL, MORBID ANGEL, OPETH, IN FLAMES, CALIBAN and more, DEVILDRIVER will definitely have an extremely active tour schedule in 2005.
DEVILDRIVER is Dez Fafara (vocals),Jon Miller (bass),John Boecklin (drums) and Jeff Kendrick and Mike Spreitzer on guitar.
