Dez Fafara Doesn’t Rule Out New Coal Chamber Album: “I Wouldn’t Put It Past Us”

While answering fan questions for a new issue of Metal Hammer, DevilDriver’s Dez Fafara was asked about the possibility of a new Coal Chamber album. The frontman responded with the following:

“I’m not gonna say yes or no. I’m not gonna say no, because we’ve all spoken. The main thing for me is that the relationship is all good after numerous fallouts in the beginning and after sone stuff went horribly wrong when we got back together to release [2015 comeback album] ‘Rivals’. The vibe in that camp is very cool at the moment, and we all have each other’s backs. I wouldn’t put it past us, but right now I’m definitely concentrating on DEVILDRIVER.”

“[It] explores what it would be like without my wife-we’ve been together a long time, raised three kids, she’s my manager- and when I finished writing the song, we found out she had cancer so I must’ve had some premonition of what was going on, so this is the demon of loneliness.”

DevilDriver To Release New Album “Dealing With Demons I” A Week Early

DevilDriver Premiere “Nest Of Vipers” Video

DevilDriver have premiered a new video for their new song “Nest Of Vipers.” This track is from the first half of the band’s new double album “Dealing With Demons.” Volume 1 of that effort, “Dealing With Demons I,” will be released on October 9. Dez Fafara commented:

“This is my first co-written lyric on any DevilDriver track with another band member, penned with our guitarist Neal Tiemann. Working with Neal is a good time. We always want what’s best for the song. Lyrically, the chorus says it all — ‘the king’s sworn men make perfect liars.’ This is the cold, hard truth, as people’s loyalties are often bought and sold. The lyric ‘she sleeps with bones beside her’ refers to another theme touched upon in this track — a woman laying in misery next to her ‘bones’ of contention, harboring guilt as her loyalties are also bought and sold… It’s all a sad state of affairs once you get into that bought and sold mentality, whether it’s with your work or friendships.”
