Devildriver details outlaw country covers album

Official press release: Globally renowned, chart-topping band Devildriver may be one of the most notable groups in metal, but their personal taste in music reaches far beyond heavy music. Thanks to widely lauded albums like 2005's epoch-shredding The Fury Of Our Maker's Hand, 2011's ante-upping, ultra-brutal Beast and 2016's acclaimed career peak Trust No One, the band - led by iconic vocalist Dez Fafara - are firmly established as one of the most consistent and best loved bands in modern metal. That said, in 2018, all expectations of who and what Devildriver are will be torched. As first teased by Fafara last year, the band's upcoming full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws 'Til The End, will finally see its day. The highly-anticipated, monstrous collection of savage metal interpretations will be released via Napalm Records on July 6, 2018, and pre-orders are available now in multiple formats with more format options coming soon. Head to Rolling Stone Country now to hear a clip of Devildriver's cover of Hank3's "Country Heroes," featuring Hank3 himself, and read all about Outlaws 'Til The End. Outlaws 'Til The End is both a startling curveball and a ferocious statement of individuality from a band who have been a constant and effective force in the heavy metal world for the best part of two decades now. "I think real music has always gotten to me, whether it's the blues or even real Goth music like Bauhaus and Sisters Of Mercy, as well as outlaw country greats like Johnny Cash, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, and Willie Nelson," Fafara explains. "That stuff has always attracted me, and this is absolutely the real McCoy. The blues and outlaw country are what made rock n' roll. They were around before rock n' roll... and in my head, I've always heard these songs heavy." Devildriver Outlaws 'Til The End track listing: 1.

anonymous 3/28/2018 10:07:04 AM

Everything about this, from the press release to the album art is laughably bad.

anonymous 3/28/2018 10:10:55 AM

Behemoth/Nergal RIP OFF That's Dez for you, jumping on the bandwagon 3 years after something starts but right before it blows up big — $$CASH MONEY$$

anonymous 3/28/2018 10:20:02 AM

There's no way this can be good.

anonymous 3/28/2018 1:52:00 PM

"Behemoth/Nergal RIP OFF That's Dez for you, jumping on the bandwagon 3 years after something starts but right before it blows up big — $$CASH MONEY$$" Nergal actually did an Americana type record, not shitty Lamb of God knock off covers. There isn't a less self aware person out there than Dez. He very likely thinks this is groundbreaking and really really good.

anonymous 3/28/2018 2:37:25 PM

me loco. me jncos. me stinkos. me sheetrock. I read this in that stupid ass voice. Best comment I've seen in awhile.

anonymous 3/28/2018 4:08:09 PM

featuring dez and devildriver? back in my day the lead singer was a part of the band, not just his backing band.
