DevilDriver have announced their new two-part album Dealing With Demons with the release of its first single, “Keep Away From Me.”
The track is a promising first glimpse of the band’s follow-up to 2018’s Outlaws ’Til the End, Vol 1. The California group’s new LP aims to explore some of the deepest topics of humanity through their own established brand of visceral metal.
“It’s time to lay it all out, on two records,” frontman Dez Fafara said of their new album in a statement. “I’m never gonna revisit these subjects again. I’ve been writing about this sort of human nature, disloyalty and dishonesty, love and loss, since the beginning of my career. I am going in a more lyrically woke direction in the future. A lot of people say my music gives them strength. But what they don’t realize is that these topics haunt me.”
DevilDriver teased in a press release that the second installment of Dealing With Demons will lean into the heavy side of the band’s songwriting. The first part of Dealing With Demons arrives on October 9 via Napalm Records.
