DevilDriver Detail New Outlaw Country Covers Album, Lamb Of God, Fear Factory, Etc. Members Guest


DevilDriver have officially revealed the details for their new outlaw country covers album, “Outlaws ‘Til The End“. That album will meet a July 06th release date through Napalm Records and finds the band joined by a number of guests, including John Carter Cash, Ana Cristina Cash, Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe and Mark Morton, Fear Factory‘s Burton C. Bell, Lee Ving of Fear fame, 36 Crazyfists‘s Brock Lindow and more.

Producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die) oversaw the majority of the sessions for the album, which you can pre-order now at this location. The band’s frontman Dez Fafara commented on the decision to do an outlaw country covers record:

“I think real music has always gotten to me, whether it’s the blues or even real Goth music like Bauhaus and Sisters Of Mercy, as well as outlaw country greats like Johnny Cash, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, and Willie Nelson. That stuff has always attracted me, and this is absolutely the real McCoy. The blues and outlaw country are what made rock n’ roll. They were around before rock n’ roll… and in my head, I’ve always heard these songs heavy.”

Speaking further about the guests involved, he added:

“I knew right away that I wanted to have guests on this record, and the first guest I wanted was John Carter Cash. I didn’t want this thing to exist without John, without Hank3 or without Randy [Blythe]. Basically, there were a certain amount of guests that I definitely wanted on it, but as I kept asking people, everyone kept saying yes!

Randy and Mark [Morton] are both from the country and they were immediately on board. With John, we wound up talking for two hours when we first met, all about his love of heavy metal and my love of outlaw country and my love of his dad’s music. All he wanted to do was talk about metal and all I wanted to do was talk about outlaw country. It was the craziest thing.”

Below you can hear the first track to be teased from the outing, a cover of Hank 3‘s “Country Heroes” featuring a guest spot from Hank 3 himself.
