DevilDriver - New Single & Video Streaming

DevilDriver put out the second single off their upcoming album, Dealing With Demons. The song "Iona" awaits below with the accompanying official video clip. Dealing With Demons is due October 9th, 2020.

Frontman Dez Fafara says about the track: "Iona" is unlike any other DevilDriver song we've put out. From the frantic verses to the haunting chorus, this song is another move forward to push our sound and the listener's ears into the fray! The chorus, "she carries a black rose, effigy from a story closed", tells the story of the long dead ghost of Iona and her obsession with death represented by the black roses in her hands - each one the soul of someone she's taken from this life on a lonely dark road, assimilating their souls into black roses, which she carries for eternity.

"This theme relates to myself and Dealing With Demons in that, often times, we as people have a hard time "letting go" of things. This can be applied to relationships, death, and so on. Iona carrying the black roses symbolizes her inability to move on - always seeking revenge. The past is exactly that - the past - it's important to let go and not be stuck in a perpetual loop of living in it."

If a yawn could be translated into a song this would be it
