DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara has pointed out that he didn’t intend to mean that Slipknot/Stone Sour, etc. frontman Corey Taylor has been locked in for an appearance on the potential second volume of “Outlaws ‘Til The End“. Despite being cautious, Taylor himself seems to be onboard, as shown by the below two tweets made this afternoon:

Original Story:

DevilDriver‘s new outlaw country covers album “Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1” will land in stores this Friday, July 06th. Ahead of that the band are now streaming their take on Steve Earle‘s “Copperhead Road“, which features a guest spot from 36 Crazyfists frontman Brock Lindow. The band’s vocalist Dez Fafara commented:

“I have always loved this story of running moonshine and running from the cops, and having Brock on this song was a smart move as his unique voice is absolutely perfect for it. I’m proud to have him on this record!”

Lindow added:

“I’m grateful to be included in the barnburner that is ‘Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1‘! ‘Copperhead Road‘ was always a heavy song with a great story that encompasses all things ‘outlaw’, but DevilDriver ups the ante on this one and puts the pedal to metal with their vision of the legendary jam. It was a tremendous honor to sing with Dez and the boys on this monster record!”

In other news, the band’s frontman Dez Fafara was a recent guest on ‘Jon’s Untitled Podcast‘ and spoke of his eventual plans to do a second volume of outlaw country covers and who he would like to have involved on it. He stated of that:

“There’s a ton of guests that I asked that said they wanted to do it, but got caught up with things. Like Glenn Danzig was the first one I asked, and he was the first one that was in, ‘Dez, I’m in.’ But then obviously all the Misfits stuff started happening and I’m like, ‘Well how am I gonna tell you to come sing this with me when you’re getting paid $2 million to play the Misfits tonight?’

But I have no doubt that on Volume 2 a friend like that will come around. It was incredible for me along the road to talk to people that were like ‘Dude, I’m on tour at that time, but if you do another one I’ll be in.’ Like the Corey Taylor’s ‘I can’t do it, I’m leaving with Stone Sour’ but his exact words were ‘I’ll be one of the ones to push it for you, I’ll help you push it.'”

Fafara also later went on to add that he hopes to one day make a series of four live shows in support of “Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1” a reality, complete with its numerous guests. If his plans manage to fall into place, that run will hit New York City, Nashville, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
