DEVILDRIVER (formerly DEATHRIDE), the new Santa Barbara, California-based project featuring ex-COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara, shot a video for the track "I Could Care Less" with director P.R. Brown (JERRY CANTRELL, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE) on Sunday (October 5). "I Could Care Less" is the first single off the group's self-titled debut album, due on October 28 through Roadrunner Records.
The band, whose sound is being described as "much heavier" than that of COAL CHAMBER and featuring "more technical" musicianship than that found in Fafara's former band, recorded the album with producer Ross Hogarth, who has previously worked with COAL CHAMBER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, and FASTER PUSSYCAT, among others. The mixing sessions were handled by Greg Reely (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD).
The complete track listing for "Devildriver" is as follows:
01. Nothing's Wrong?
02. I Could Care Less (mp3)
03. Die (And Die Now) (mp3)
04. I Dreamed I Died
