Winter Kills set for August 28 release date in Japan

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez FaFara comments;

“I am thrilled to be in business with Brian Slagel and his Metal Blade team in Japan. To be associated with a person and company as respected, successful, and passionate as they are compliment my work ethic and passion to a tee. Sometimes it’s about the company you keep and DevilDriver could not be in better company in Japan.

Hail Dez”

The artwork for Winter Kills features a photograph by Dean Karr with the layout handled by Ryan Clark/Invisible Creature.

DEVILDRIVER worked with Lewis previously on Beast and The Last Kind Words and producer Mark Lewis’s prolific leadership of the new school of metal has yet again helped DEVILDRIVER deliver another Epic heavy Metal record. This record melds what the band does best. In your face power as well as the California Groove sound the band pioneered.

“This is by far DEVILDRIVER’s most cohesive, powerful, groove laden record to date! We delivered our signature California Groove sound alongside a Raw and Biting guitar tone, mixed it with massive hooks, added in thunderous drums to rethink, and reshape another different sounding unique piece of Rock-N-Roll! Cutting our own path is something to be proud of. DEVILDRIVER has always and will forever be about thinking outside the box and delivering on something different from record to record, we cannot be assimilated into any scene or even genre of Metal and we will continue to do things our own way with a massive middle finger in the air to the status quo!”

Hail RockNRoll

Dez FaFara

DEVILDRIVER has always been a band on a three-pronged mission: Work hard, rock harder, and kick as many asses as possible in the process. The band tours forever and has since its beginnings. Their live performances and circle pits are as legendary as their music.

The band will be hitting the road worldwide in support of Winter Kills. Touring as always will be a focal point for the band. The US can expect to see them this fall and winter with Europe and the rest of the globe coming in 2014 and beyond.

WHITECHAPEL Members Launch YouTube Channels

WHITECHAPEL guitarist Alex Wade just launched his official youtube channel. Fans can subscribe now at youtube.com/AlexWadeOfficial.

Creating this YouTube channel just combines my two favorite hobbies and allows me to connect more personally with our fan base, so it just seems like a natural thing for me to do. I will be posting song play throughs of Whitechapel (and non Whitechapel) songs, gear demos, FAQs, tutorials, tour videos, and a lot more.”

WHITECHAPEL Announce More European Summer Dates

WHITECHAPEL’s debut full-length album, The Somatic Defilement, is the album that firmly planted the band on an upward trajectory and carried them to the upper echelons of modern death metal. The band has taken The Somatic Defilement and placed it in the capable hands of Audiohammer Studios producer Mark Lewis for a complete re-mix and re-master. The results are staggering and give The Somatic Defilementa modern luster up to the standards of the band’s most recent recordings. Fans can listen and pre-order now at metalblade.com/whitechapel. The album will be released April 12/15.

The Somatic Defilement, originally released in 2007, is a concept album about Jack the Ripper‘s infamous murders of prostitutes in East London‘s WHITECHAPEL district. This 2013 re-release sees the band tasking producer Mark Lewis to painstakingly bring the six year old recording to today’s standard.

The band’s latest effort, the self-titled album that dropped on June 19, 2012 in North America, debuted at #47 on the Top 200 Chart, #10 on the Top Independent Albums Chart, #3 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Current), #2 on the Hard Music Albums Chart (Core Stores) and #64 on the Top Digital Album Chart.

Whitechapel was one of the most well received albums of 2012, with critical acclaim from some of the most respected music outlets including The New York Times, Alternative Press, Metal Hammer. The album also claimed bragging rights as the iTunes UK Metal Album of the Year for 2012!

WHITECHAPEL’s video for their song I, Dementia can be viewed HERE. The video was shot by David Brodsky of MyGoodEye as part of the Scion AV Project.
