The fourth clip in DevilDriver’s interview series for their upcoming covers album Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 is now streaming. In it, members of DevilDriver and album guests – Randy Blythe (Lamb of God), Hank3, Wednesday 13, and Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory) – discuss the lyrics of outlaw country and how their performances brought new life to the content. Blythe comments:
“Heartache, alcoholism, not having money, and just feeling disliked and unwanted by the entire rest of the world – those are all very real things. There’s no disputing that… you can see broken men and women everywhere. And that’s what those songs are ultimately about, I think. Broken spirits.”
DevilDriver vocalist Dez Fafara continues:
“As a lyricist, I look at these outlaw country artists, they’re unbelievable.”
“For me, writing country music, or outlaw music, is trying to keep it as real as possible.”
The effort hits stores July 6th via Napalm Records. Secure your pre-order at Napalm’s webstore.
