DevilDriver Energized By New Lineup

(TeamRock Radio) DevilDriver mainman Dez Fafara says the band's two new members injected much-needed energy into their upcoming seventh album. They release Trust No One on May 13 via Napalm Records and Fafara says the contributions of drummer Austin D'Amond and guitarist Neal Tiemann were vital.

D'Amond and Tiemann replaced John Boecklin and Jeff Kendrick, who left the group last year. Fafara tells Distorted Sound: "I think when you have members that come in and want to be part of a project, that want to get on a midnight flight and play four hours later and they're hungry, you can feel it.

"The only analogy I can give is that I know a hundred bands that tour together that hate each other. You can feel it. You can feel it backstage, you can feel it on the records, you can hear the record, and it may be touted as the best sh*t, and then I listen to the record, because I know the band, and I'm, like, 'Huh, they hate each other.' It's f***ing obvious.

"And I don't want to be in one of those bands, so when you get new cats and it's been a very long time since we've had new members in this band, you get that new feeling." Read more here.
