DevilDriver - Split With Drummer

DevilDriver have parted ways with drummer Austin D'Amond, who was part of the band since 2015. D'Amound leaves the band to take a role in a spot at his sobriety clinic heading up the program. He will be replaced by Davier Perez.

Statement from the band: "Uplifting news here, always sad to part with a brother, but in this case we could not be more proud… Austin D'Amond has been offered a very lucrative spot at his sobriety clinic to head up the program, helping to get people sober, and we are very proud of the steps he’s taken in his own life to get sober and also to help others with their struggles.

"Sad to see him go, but as he steps away from touring, he’s bettering his life and the lives of others - so Austin, we salute you! Now, DevilDriver welcomes to the fold on drums, Davier Perez!"

Dez says: "Working with Austin was fun, but I’m very glad for the next chapter of his life where he will be helping people."

Austin adds: "I'm very grateful for my time playing for DevilDriver and the experience was priceless. These friendships will last forever, and I have nothing but love for all my brothers. I wish them many more years of giving the fans the most necessary SHRED!!!"
