DEVILDRIVER Releases Outlaws 'Til The End Interview Series Part 5: The Cash Cabin; Video

DevilDriver will release their full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws 'Til The End, via Napalm Records on July 6th, and pre-orders are available now in multiple formats here. Merch bundles are also available via the official store. Additional merchandise such as t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, flasks, keychains, and more are also available here.

Last week, DevilDriver dropped the most commanding song cut from Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 - their metallicized, aggressive cover of the outlaw classic “Ghost Riders In The Sky” - featuring the talents of album guests John Carter Cash (son of country music legend Johnny Cash), Ana Cristina Cash, and renowned Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe. Listen below.

Today, following up on the track’s release, DevilDriver reveal the fifth video in a series of interview commentary videos supporting the release of Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1. The fifth segment, entitled The Cash Cabin, features members of DevilDriver and album guests John Carter Cash and Randy Blythe of Lamb of God discussing the recording of “Ghost Riders In Te Sky” at the famous Cash Cabin where Johnny and June Carter Cash recorded most of their later music. Watch below.

DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara says, “I was very fortunate to record there and be able to sign the mantle. Like the mantle that Johnny Cash built in his cabin… it was unbelievable for me. Meeting John Carter Cash was an incredible thing… he told us some stuff his dad had done in there… I found it very interesting that a lot of these real country cats listen to metal. The first story John Carter Cash told us was about his father taking him to go see Ozzy.”

John Carter Cash adds, “I sang the choruses… and then my wife Ana did some high parts here and there. It was exciting. We don’t do a lot of that kind of music in the cabin… we have tracked metal at my studio and a lot of rock n’ roll, a lot of loud guitars… but real metal, not that much. So, it was a blessing to have it there and be able to have a chance to be a part of something exciting and different…”

Randy Blythe offers, “[Dez] was like, do you want to sing 'Ghost Riders' with me and John Carter Cash and I was like absolutely! Who wouldn’t want to? It was a lot of fun… I sat there and sweated and screamed… it was a good time!”

Check out the rest of the Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 commentary videos below.

Outlaws 'Til The End is both a startling curveball and a ferocious statement of individuality from a band who have been a constant and effective force in the heavy metal world for the best part of two decades now. "I think real music has always gotten to me, whether it's the blues or even real Goth music like Bauhaus and Sisters Of Mercy, as well as outlaw country greats like Johnny Cash, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, and Willie Nelson," Fafara explains. "That stuff has always attracted me, and this is absolutely the real McCoy. The blues and outlaw country are what made rock n' roll. They were around before rock n' roll... and in my head, I've always heard these songs heavy."
