DevilDriver recently announced the highly-anticipated release of their upcoming double album. The first volume, entitled Dealing With Demons I, is due October 9, 2020 via Napalm Records and marks the band’s first release of new, original material since 2016’s Trust No One. Today they’ve dropped a Vicente Cordero-directed video for the new single “Nest Of Vipers”, available for streaming via YouTube below.
Frontman Dez Fafara says about “Nest Of Vipers” and working with guitarist Neal Tiemann on their first lyrical collaboration:
“This is my first co-written lyric on any DevilDriver track with another band member, penned with our guitarist Neal Tiemann. Working with Neal is a good time. We always want what’s best for the song. Lyrically, the chorus says it all – “the kings sworn men make perfect liars”. This is the cold, hard truth, as people’s loyalties are often bought and sold. The lyric “she sleeps with bones beside her” refers to another theme touched upon in this track – a woman laying in misery next to her “bones” of contention, harboring guilt as her loyalties are also bought and sold… It’s all a sad state of affairs once you get into that bought and sold mentality, whether it’s with your work or friendships.”
