DevilDriver announced back in May that they would be releasing a new double album and that “Dealing With Demons I” would be released on October 9th, via Napalm Records. This is their first album in 4 years and we are excited to be getting new DevilDriver!
Since that announcement, the band has released 3 singles with 3 videos to support the album. The first 2 singles “Keep Away From Me” and “Iona” were released in May and July. August now brings us their 3rd single and video for “Nest Of Vipers”.
Frontman Dez Fafara says that “Nest Of Vipers” is actually the first DevilDriver song that he has co-written. Fafara states “This is my first co-written lyric on any DevilDriver track with another band member, penned with our guitarist Neal Tiemann,” Fafara continued. “Working with Neal is a good time. We always want what’s best for the song. Lyrically, the chorus says it all: ‘The king’s sworn men make perfect liars.’ This is the cold, hard truth, as people’s loyalties are often bought and sold. The lyric ‘she sleeps with bones beside her’ refers to another theme touched upon in this track — a woman laying in misery next to her ‘bones’ of contention, harboring guilt as her loyalties are also bought and sold … It’s all a sad state of affairs once you get into that bought-and-sold mentality, whether it’s with your work or friendships.”
