DevilDriver have announced their new album Dealing With Demons I, due for release on 9th October 2020 via Napalm Records. Dealing With Demons I is the band’s first new, original material since 2016’s Trust No One and is the first volume in their twin album project, Dealing With Demons.
In light of the announcement, DevilDriver have released a lyric video for their new single Keep Away From Me.
“I’ve been social distancing since I was born. I’ve learned to try and embrace my Agoraphobia all my life,” explains frontman Dez Fafara. “This is what the lyrics are about as we are all sheltered in place. They seem very clear. Now is not the time bands should shy away from the obvious, by trying to push the narrative through their art as if everything is alright with the world and ‘it’s metal video visual as usual time’, as it is clearly NOT that time.
“We as artists should speak up, inspire and change lives, or paint a picture – a time capsule if you will – by the narrative we push in uncertain times. This video is one such art piece as my band and thousands of others are forced into quarantine – cannot rehearse, take photos, or perform – to make a music video for the very people that have supported us for years. It’s trying times for the world and my outlook through this video is simply this: here’s what we are going through as a family on this planet and as we embrace what is yet to come… please Stand Together.”
