Unfortunate news for DevilDriver fans here… Guitarist Jeff Kendrick and drummer John Boecklin have both parted ways from the band. Good news is this wasn't caused by any drama or bullshit. Here's the official statement from the band:
"What a blast Knotfest was. No better way to end the Winter Kills cycle. With the end of this cycle comes some other endings. John Boecklin, Jeff Kendrick and DevilDriver have parted ways. Nothing dramatic, no drag down fights, just time to move on. As I have said previously, DevilDriver is on hiatus while I re join 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."
Alas, life and music goes on. Chomp down on some heavy music while we wait for what comes next!
