Groove Metal outfit Devildriver previously announced their second part of their Dealing With Demons saga, their 10th full-length album, Dealing With Demons Vol. II, out May 12, 2023 via Napalm Records. Dealing With Demons Vol. II sets out to be “heavier and relentlessly harsher” which you can see with their second single, “If Blood Is Life.”
The accompanying performance music video features exclusive footage from their recent US co-headline tour with labelmates Cradle of Filth.
Devildriver frontman Dez Fafara says about “If Blood is Life”:
Shadows of the future, ghosts of your past walking the floor – why do these things haunt us as humans, when we should be focused on the fact that, like the chorus says, ‘Time, it waits for no one, Time, it’s worth the taking.’ Learn to focus on the now, the here, the present.
Dealing With Demons Vol. II represents “Dez Fafara’s psyche and the final purging of his demons that have long haunted the band’s music.”
