DevilDriver Cover AWOLNATION

(TeamRock Radio) DevilDriver have released a lyric video for their cover of indie band AWOLNATION track Sail. The idea came to frontman Dez Fafara when his teenage sons played the song in his car.

"I absolutely connected with the lyric 'Blame it on my ADD.' I suffered from attention deficit my whole life," Fafara explains. "The song has the word 'sail' in it, and I've been on tour for 20 years, so I liked it. I hit the guys up - they got back to me in five minutes and were like, 'Let's cover this.'"

It's not the first time DevilDriver have pulled a cover from left field, and it's unlikely to be the last. "We started to realise it's more fun," says Fafara.

And the writers have given their blessing. "We heard AWOLNATION like the cover, which is really cool. When you're covering another artist's song and they like what you've done with it, that's always a pleasure." Check out the video here.
