DEVILDRIVER Check In From The Road

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"We had a four-day drive from california to Flint, MI to start out the States Turn Blue To Gray tour with MACHINE HEAD. First date, a sold-out show at The Machine Shop (May 6). The next day we stayed in Flint on a day off, and went to back to The Machine Shop for b-b-q and a good time (we want to thank Kevin at The Machine Shop for treating us so well). Last night was Toronto, where Robert Flynn was too sick to sing, but he played guitar and auditioned fans from the audience all night, having them come up and sing songs. Even three DEVILDRIVER bandmates came up to sing. It was an all around great time for people. Glad that MACHINE HEAD didn't cancel, it went off without a hitch.

"We're on our way to Boston, driving on the 90...we have the day off and will be visiting family of the band. Tomorrow we play Rhode Island, can't wait to see everybody there...god am i glad to be back on tour..."

DEVILDRIVER's sophomore album, "The Fury of Our Maker's Hand", is scheduled for release on June 28 via Roadrunner Records. Two tracks from the CD, "End of the Line" and "Hold Back the Day", have been posted online at this location.

The follow-up to DEVILDRIVER's 2002 critically-acclaimed self-titled debut, "The Fury of Our Maker's Hand" was produced by Colin Richardson (MACHINE HEAD, FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH) at Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, TX and is "way heavier and much faster" than its predecessor, according to frontman Dez Fafara (ex-COAL CHAMBER).

DEVILDRIVER is Dez Fafara (vocals), Jon Miller (bass), John Boecklin (drums) and Jeff Kendrick and Mike Spreitzer on guitar.
