DevilDriver Have Finished Recording New Album
DevilDriver have completed their upcoming album, if vocalist Dez Fafara's latest Instagram post is any indication. The musician began recording his contributions for the anticipated release earlier this year.
Confidence in the project clearly displayed, Farfara shared an image Tuesday demonstrating that the effort's in the can, his "finished" lyrics for the album split among an arrangement of envelopes tidily filed. See it below.
"This is what two years and hard work looks like," the musician captioned the shot of multiple envelopes, each said to be stuffed with songs. "20 folders filled from hand written lyrics to typed then finished."
Calling the forthcoming Steve Evetts-produced platter DevilDriver's "defining moment as a band," Fafara expressed his relief in completing it. He added that he would be "proud to go out like this" were it his final album.
After last year's outlaw country covers record from the SoCal groove metal veterans, Outlaws 'til the End, Vol. 1, the band's imminent full-length affair was envisioned as the ensuing and concluding chapter to that set.
DevilDriver hit the road with Dope and Static-X for a tour this summer, the latter act's surviving members paying tribute to their late frontman Wayne Static and debut album, Wisconsin Death Trip. See the dates below.
