Winter is coming…that is, DevilDriver’s album Winter Kills, due out August 27th from Napalm Records. Today, they released the track “Ruthless”, via ARTISTdirect. “The fact is in life you need to be ruthless at points to protect family and what’s rightfully yours” said lead singer Dez Fafara to ARTISTdirect. “It’s definitely one of my favorite tracks on Winter Kills and has a signature that’s all DevilDriver. It’s the first track I laid and it’s all first takes…”
Of the album as a whole, Fafara says:
“This is by far DevilDriver’s most cohesive, powerful, groove laden record to date!We delivered our signature California Groove sound alongside a Raw and Biting guitar tone, mixed it with massive hooks, added in thunderous drums to rethink, and reshape another different sounding unique piece of Rock-N-Roll! Cutting our own path is something to be proud of. DevilDriver has always and will forever be about thinking outside the box and delivering on something different from record to record, we cannot be assimilated into any scene or even genre of Metal and we will continue to do things our own way with a massive middle finger in the air to the status quo!”
The album will be their first on Napalm Records after leaving former label home Roadrunner Records.
