DevilDriver is currently in El Paso, Texas recording the follow-up release to their self-titled debut. To Tony at Sonic Ranch studios, if you are reading this, you have the band's gratitude for everything you have done for them thus far during the recording sessions. That being said, DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara checks in with the following: "First of all, DevilDriver would like to thank you all for a great year - anyone who supported us, bought the record, came to a show, our appreciation goes out to you. We'd also like to thank the following bands who believed in us and have taken us on tour over the past year: Superjoint Ritual, Morbid Angel. Opeth, In Flames, Caliban, and Ozzy, Sharon, and the whole Ozzfest camp. "Sorry no update in a while, but things have been extremely busy. Here's what is going on: We are currently in the studio with Colin Richardson, and having a great time. We started recording about 12 days ago, and are done with drums and well into the guitars. We've got 14 tracks, each one brutal as hell. All the musicians in this band, myself included, have stepped up. We're gonna wrap up 2 days before Christmas...and we're looking forward to a healthy dose of touring starting February 1st, the schedule is being worked out as we speak. "HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM DEVILDRIVER, LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU NEXT YEAR." new DevilDriver coming early 2005
