Part One Of New Outlaws 'Til The End Interview Series, With Randy Blythe, Hank3, Lee Ving Streaming

Globally renowned, chart-topping band DEVILDRIVER recently announced the upcoming release of their full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws 'Til The End. The monstrous collection of savage metal interpretations will be released via Napalm Records on July 6, 2018, and pre-orders are available now in multiple formats via http://smarturl.it/OutlawsTilTheEnd-NPR with more format options coming soon.

This week, DEVILDRIVER is pleased to reveal the first of several segments of a new interview commentary series supporting the release of Outlaws 'Til The End. The first segment, titled "Intro to Outlaw Country", features members of DEVILDRIVER as well as album guests Randy Blythe of LAMB OF GOD, Lee Ving of FEAR, Hank3, Wednesday 13, Burton C. Bell of FEAR FACTORY and Brock Lindow of 36 CRAZYFISTS discussing their personal introductions to the outlaw country genre and how it has influenced them as musicians.

In the video, Fafara details, "I got into my parents' record collection when I was younger, and that's what got me into music. And they have everything from THE DOORS, to STEPPENWOLF, to a lot of outlaw country, and even stuff like Kenny Rogers, laying around the house... but I think my true love [for outlaw country] came from when I started touring with PANTERA. Them and on the BLACK SABBATH tour. I constantly was hearing those guys on the bus jamming outlaw country. If it wasn't Willie Nelson, it was Johnny Cash and bands like that. I just fell in love with the lyrics as well. The lyrical content is so fucking real..."

For more commentary, check out the "Intro to Outlaw Country" segment in the video commentary series below.

Listen to a clip of DEVILDRIVER's cover of Hank3's "Country Heroes", featuring Hank3 himself, below also.

Outlaws 'Til The End is both a startling curveball and a ferocious statement of individuality from a band who have been a constant and effective force in the heavy metal world for the best part of two decades now. From the opening seconds of Hank3's "Country Heroes" onward, Outlaws 'Til The End is simply one of the most invigorating records the band have made yet. More importantly, these evocative, irresistible songs have all been wholly rebuilt from the ground up, powered by the classic DEVILDRIVER sound and embellished with Fafara's unmistakable feral roar. Outlaws 'Til The End was produced, mixed and recorded with Steve Evetts (DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, EVERY TIME I DIE, SEPULTURA, THE CURE), and co-produced by DEVILDRIVER guitarist Mike Spreitzer. The album was mastered by renowned engineer Alan Douches.

Completing this unprecedented project is a host of metal and country luminaries providing unforgettable cameos: horror metal icon Wednesday 13 lends his incensed rasp to George Jones' "If Drinking Don't Kill Me", 36 CRAZY FISTS frontman Brock Lindow brings fire and soul to Steve Earle's, "Copperhead Road", and FEAR FACTORY's Burton C. Bell helps to turn Richard Thompson's anti-war classic, "Dad's Gonna Kill Me", into a brooding gothic metal extravaganza. Meanwhile, LAMB OF GOD members Randy Blythe and Mark Morton contribute to an exhilarating decimation of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River" before Randy makes a second appearance on DEVILDRIVER's version of cowboy standard "Ghost Riders In The Sky"; the latter featuring the son of Johnny Cash himself. The album also features the iconic voice of FEAR, US punk rock legend Lee Ving, on Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around" and David Allan Coe's "The Ride".
