DevilDriver has announced their first record in three years, predictably titled Dealing With Demons Vol. II after 2020's Vol. I, and is now streaming the first single "Through The Depths." If you've been wanting some real cut-throat DevilDriver tunes, it seems like Dealing With Demons Vol. II is going to be for you!
"'Through The Depths' is a conversation between a higher power and humans regarding the power of thinking ideas into existence, but being very careful of being arrogant behind those wants and needs," said DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara. "The first lines give this away: 'Attention attention, you're seeking, you've asked for, it's given' (the higher power says).
"Then the lines of the chorus are that same higher power speaking to humans, saying: 'through the depths to the ascension, nothing you wouldn't do for my attention, held to the fire it's not my crime, you've pinned it on me for the last time.' Meaning – don't blame the Gods (pin it on them) for your fuck ups. Meaning – put it out there and take steps to attain goals and take accountability.
"This track is the essence of Dealing With Demons Vol. II, and the conversations within the record get way deeper than even this."
Dealing With Demons Vol. II is out on May 12 and pre-orders are available here. DevilDriver and Cradle Of Filth will hit the road with Black Satellite and Oni for the first leg of their Double Trouble Live tour starting this March. Get those dates below.
