DevilDriver announce 2017 North American tour


DevilDriver will tour North America with Death Angel, Winds Of Plague and The Agonist next February.

They’re heading out on the road under the Bound By The Road banner, kicking off at Santa Ana’s Observatory in California and wrapping up in Seattle’s Studio 7 in Washington on March 5.

DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara says: “We’re heading out on our first headline run in over three years with a killer set list and full production, and we are bringing some heavy, badass bands along with us. Get your tickets early and come out with some friends, ‘cause this tour is going to be a monster banger!”

They launched their seventh studio album Trust No One this year. Fafara previously said DevilDriver were taking time off over November and December to record something “very special.”

“It’s not a new record, well, not a new original record, but something really special,” the singer said, before quoting country artist Jamey Johnson’s track Keepin’ Up With The Jonesin’: “Lord I quit the drinking, smoking, and the honky tonk life.”

Further release details will be revealed in due course.
