DevilDriver Already Working On New Album!
We literally just spoke to Dez Fafara of DevilDriver and he told us the band are already working on a new album!
Dez tells Hammer that there is a new album in the pipeline and will be out around October next year!
“We’re definitely stepping it up. Most bands have five or six years before they even get signed, so they have that time to hone their sound and we only had six months! We’ve been together six or seven years so that’s why you’re getting this fourth record. If you’re prolific then bring it. For some bands you’re waiting like three or four years for the next album and that’s not fair on the fans, and we’re not that band, we want to be prolific.”
“We’ve got way faster tunes, way heavier tunes. We’re finding ourselves with this next record. Really we’ve been finding ourselves on every record. From the first record to the new one you can hear the progression, take the journey. Which I think is cool.”
And what about the anthems on the latest album? Will you be carrying that forward?
“We don’t yet. I’m just starting to write vocals, but it’s gonna be big: big hooks, big choruses, but it’s heavier as well and has loads of technical stuff on their too. We never set our sights on something specific, it just happens.”
“The feeling these guys have is that they want to crush so they’re gonna write an album that crushes!”
