DEVILDRIVER Begins Recording New Album

California metallers DEVILDRIVER have entered Seahorse Sound Studios in downtown Los Angeles to begin recording their new album for an early 2016 release via Napalm Records.

The CD, which is once again being helmed by Mark Lewis (ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, SIX FEET UNDER), will mark the group’s first release since the departures of guitarist Jeff Kendrick and drummer John Boecklin and addition of axeman Neal Tiemann and former CHIMAIRA sticksman Austin D’Amond.

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara told Australia’s The Rockpit earlier in the year about the band’s plans for a new studio album:

“Over twelve years, we put out six records and we really never really took time off. Where most bands take a year and a half off between cycles, I’m kind of a road warrior and I never did that. And it became [clear] to me and everybody else around me, I was, like, ‘Look, man, I need a little bit of time off. I need at least 9-10 months off music just to hang out with my family’. When that happened, [Dez‘s reactivated 1990s band] COAL CHAMBER ironically just came to the table and said, ‘Hey why don’t we do the record in between that time?’ So DEVILDRIVER, by the time we come back, I’m recording a new DEVILDRIVER record at the end of this year. I’m sitting on twelve blistering songs that I’m in love with and I’m recording those [in] October-November this year and sometime next year, [in] spring/summer/fall, I’m going to release another DEVILDRIVER record and get right back in a DEVILDRIVER cycle. I don’t want DEVILDRIVER sitting around too long but we definitely needed to take a break out of the markets and a break from touring for a little bit.”

DEVILDRIVER‘s latest album, “Winter Kills“, sold around 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 32 on The Billboard 200 chart.
