DevilDriver have revealed that their new album, “Trust No One,” will be released on May 13, via Napalm Records. This will be the band’s first effort with new guitarist Neal Tiemann (Burn Halo) and new drummer Austin D’Amond (ex-Chimaira).

See you next year with ‘Trust No One‘ and around the world on tour!”

This was an an excellent platform to help continue playing music, when our collective bands either ended or went on a hiatus. Chimaira was an amazing experience and we look forward to future music endeavors with eachother.”
