DEVILDRIVER Reveals New Music Video

With the recent announcement of their highly-anticipated upcoming double album, Dealing With Demons, DEVILDRIVER has revealed that they will release the first volume of the album – entitled Dealing With Demons I on October 9, 2020 via Napalm Records. Portraying themes that have influenced frontman Dez Fafara and DEVILDRIVER’s music, each track on Dealing With Demons I depicts a different demon to be dealt with, or set free. This marks the band’s first release of new material since 2016’s well received Trust No One album.

This week DEVILDRIVER followed up on the release of their latest single “Keep Away From Me” with "Iona""Iona is unlike any other DEVILDRIVER song we’ve put out. From the frantic verses to the haunting chorus, this song is another move forward to push our sound and the listener's ears into the fray! The chorus, “she carries a black rose, effigy from a story closed", tells the story of the long dead ghost of Iona and her obsession with death represented by the black roses in her hands – each one the soul of someone she’s taken from this life on a lonely dark road, assimilating their souls into black roses, which she carries for eternity," says Frontman Dez Fafara about “Iona."
"This theme relates to myself and “Dealing With Demons” in that, often times, we as people have a hard time “letting go” of things. This can be applied to relationships, death, and so on. Iona carrying the black roses symbolizes her inability to move on – always seeking revenge. The past is exactly that – the past – it’s important to let go and not be stuck in a perpetual loop of living in it."
