We’re Streaming A New Track From David Draiman’s Device!
Device release their self-titled debut album via Warner on April 8, but we have a brand new track from the opus ready to roll, right here. Listen to You Think You Know below….
Device is the new industrial metal project featuring Disturbed frontman David Draiman, and as the man himself notes, it all came together rather nicely.
“It started to develop very naturally and organically,” says Draiman of the band. “Geno [Lenardo, ex-Filter] is a brilliant songwriter in his own right and a tremendously talented sound designer as far as the electronic palette is concerned. Together, we made this monster. It’s not metal. It’s got a dark electronic vibe. At the same time, these are big, anthemic, and intensely melodic songs. It’s futuristic rock.
“I took a page from the hip hop guys out there who always have everybody and his mother on their records,” laughs the singer, who roped in the likes of Serj Tankian and Tom Morello to get involved. “It’s something we’d never done in Disturbed, and I wanted to call on my list of colleagues and friends who are so ridiculously talented and accomplished. I was honored and humbled beyond words that everybody was into it. This hasn’t been done in our genre of music, and it’s time. It’s time for a resurgence of this darker, heavier sound.”
“It has all of the elements that identify this body of work and band,” he adds of debut single Vilify. “It’s an excellent introduction to what Device is. From a lyrical standpoint, it talks about how some people love to make me out to be a horrible guy. They (the haters) brand me as an evil egomaniac with a chip on his shoulder, but that’s not who I am. I’m a pretty easy-going, mild mannered guy, and I’m also a very strong-willed and outspoken individual. I’m very passionate about what I believe, and I don’t apologize for standing behind those beliefs.”
