Concert Photo Review: Devildriver at Holy Diver – November 17th, 2018

Devildriver recently performed at Holy Diver on their “Outlaws ‘Til The End” U.S. Headline Tour. Nikon shooter Jennifer Black was there to capture the excitement.

At the start of the tour, vocalist Dez Fafara had this to say, “Today, Devildriver hits the road in support of Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 in the USA! We’ve got some special songs in store for you all on this run and we can’t wait to share the stage with Jinjer in support of their new EP. Along with us will be Raven Black as well! Tickets are going really fast and many venues are very close to selling out on these fall shows so fair warning! October/November is my favorite time to tour, so come join the madness and get the f-ck in the pit with Devildriver!”

 

Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 reached #1 on the Loud Rock radio charts, in addition to charting in the U.S. at #2 on the Top Hard Music Albums charts, #6 on the Top Current Rock Albums chart, and within the Top 20 on the Top Internet, Overall Digital, and Top Current Albums charts. Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 charted at #8 on the Canadian Top Current Albums charts, as well as in the UK at #9 on the Rock & Metal Chart and #18 on the Independent Chart. The band also reached additional charting positions on the U.S. Billboard Top 200, and in Canada, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman is a devastating addition to Harm’s Way‘s catalog. “We’ve always stayed true to who we are and allowed the songwriting process to take shape organically from record to record, and as the band has progressed, our sound has become more refined with metal and industrial influences,” states drummer Chris Mills, while guitarist Bo Lueders succinctly sums up what people can expect when they first spin the record:“To a Harm’s Way fan, I would describe ‘Posthuman‘ as a blend of ‘Isolation‘(2011) and ‘Rust‘ (2015), but it’s sonically way more insane. To anyone else, I would simply say it’s full on heavy and full on aggression.”
