Devildriver - Bassist To Sit Out Upcoming Tours

Devildriver bassist Jonathan Miller won't be joining the band on tour in early 2011 as he will be following a rehabilitation program. Miller released the following statement:

"To all DevilDriver fans and friends, I wanted to give you an update on my status as far as my health is concerned.

Regarding the past 2 European tours, I was either forced to leave by my own accord or asked to leave by my band/managment.

I have been touring with DevilDriver for almost the past ten years and the drugs and alcohol have finally caught up with me. I realized this when I ended up in the ICU on my birthday last week.

I need to make a change so that I can save my own life and keep the friends that I still have left.

I know that alot of DevilDriver fans seek me out first as the one to party with because I consider myself a very social person who is quite outgoing, personable and friendly.

That was all fun in my 20′s touring with the band, but as I am entering my early 30′s I can feel the damage catching up with me mentally and physically. I don't want to burn out prematurely before my time on this Earth is up.

On January 1st I will be entering an intense rehabilitation program in order for me to reclaim my health and the person who I once was.

I will not be doing the Canadian tour in January or the Australian tour in February and March. This is for my own good. I need to come out of rehab with a sound body and mind. After I complete my rehabilitation I hope to see all DevilDriver friends and family as soon as I can."

Devildriver - New Album Details

Original news, published on 25.10.2010

Roadrunner Records press release

Devildriver announced today the release of their forthcoming fifth album, Beast. Beast was produced by Mark Lewis (All That Remains, Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder) and will hit retail via longtime label Roadrunner Records on February 22, 2011.

While many bands in the modern era are already withering away by their second album and have shriveled up and died by their third, DevilDriver have proven to mutate, growing stronger, deadlier and more immortal with each successive release. Beast, which follows 2009's Pray For Villains, finds the band refusing to compromise in their mission to deliver music that will make you feel as though you were slapped upside the head with a baseball bat. The band recorded 14 songs during the Beast sessions, with 11 or 12 tracks expected to make the final cut. Some song titles are as follows: "Dead to Rights," "Hardened," "Bring The Fight (To the Floor)," "Shitlist," "Talons Out (Teeth Sharpened)," "Blur," "You Make Me Sick (Sacred Secrets)," "The Blame Game," "Coldblooded, "Crowns Of Creation" and "Lend Myself to the Night."

Frontman Dez Fafara himself dubbed the record their most "extreme" to date and even compared Beast to "driving a Buick Skylark 200 miles an hour straight to Vegas" in an exclusive studio report in this month's Revolver.


US metallers Devildriver have revealed the cover artwork of their forthcoming album, entitled Beast.

Due on February 22, 2011 via Roadrunner Records, Beast was recorded at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas with producer Mark Lewis (Trivium, Chimaira, All That Remains) and is currently being mixed by British producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Exodus, Machine Head, Nevermore, Arch Enemy) at his Backstage studio in Derbyshire, England.

Devildriver - Album Title Named

John Boecklin, the drummer of Devildriver has posted the following update about Devildriver's upcoming album:

"The record is completely tracked! This album certainly has a more serious and focused vibe that we may have missed in previous efforts. One song in particular is the craziest double bass patterns I've ever done, guitar work you would not expect from us, mixed in with a really fresh vocal approach Completely new from Dez Fafara. Its vibe is very new for us, but still totally brutal. I guess talking about it won't do much, I'm just trying to state that you won't be disappointed with us if you are Devildriver fan. Yet, there will be some surprises in "Pray For Villians" that are refreshing. In case someone didn't read it already, "Pray For Villians" is the album title. I'm very proud of every member for stepping it up!"

"Pray For Villians", is scheduled for a release in June through Roadrunner Records, The CD was recorded at Edge of the Earth studios in Los Angeles with producer Logan Mader.

Devildriver - New Album On The Way

US metallers Devildriver have issued the following update:

"As you all know, DevilDriver has been laying low over the past couple of months... so we wanted to give you a head's up on what has been going on over the summer of 2008 up until now.

Upon returning from Europe in July, the band has been hard at work writing the fourth DevilDriver record... as of yet untitled. I have been back and forth between NY and Santa Barbara and L.A. writing the record, tracking demos at Mike's house and spending time with my loved ones. We currently have around 14 songs in the pot that we are working with and will have 2 or 3 more finished before we embark on our final run of "The Last Kind Words" touring cycle.

Yes... it will sound like DevilDriver... a bigger, stronger DevilDriver, and listeners will receive a record which will capture DD doing what we do best. Record producer and recording location will be decided in these next upcoming weeks and we will keep you posted when a decision has been made. So please join us on our upcoming US headliner with Snot, Straight Line Stitch and Rosengaurd starting October 15th. You can buy me a beer."
