Wednesday, 7th January 2015

Former CHIMAIRA drummer Austin D’Amond has joined DEVILDRIVER. Austin posted the following message:

“Well here’s the news I promised y’all… You ready???? Lady’s and Gents, introducing the new drummer for… DEVILDRIVER!!! Thanks everyone for all the support through my career. Without you all I would’ve never made it this far. I promise to give you all one hell of a performance!!! Keep shredding peeps!!! Dreams do come true!”

Back in late October, DEVILDRIVER vocalist Dez Fafara (Coal Chamber) announced that the band had parted ways with John Boecklin (drums), and Jeff Kendrick (guitar), stating: “nothing dramatic, no drag down fights, just time to move on.”

Fafara continued: “As I have said previously, DevilDriver is on hiatus while I rejoin Coal Chamber for a new record release and tour. DevilDriver will be back, make no mistake of that, in 2016 with a new record which we are already writing, tours around the world and the massive pits you have all gotten used to. All in DevilDriver wish John and Jeff the best.”
