DevilDriver’s Dez Fafara explains his decision on playing Coal Chamber music on upcoming Static-X tour

Posted by on January 23, 2019

DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara broke his Coal Chamber silence  yesterday by announcing that he will play Coal Chamber songs during the group’s upcoming tour with Static-X. As exciting as this is, the nostalgic reveal isn’t quite surprising as it’s safe to say, this trek is the perfect time to unleash these classic tunes. Following his reveal, Fafara has taken to Twitter to further explain his decision.

Read his statement below:

“So yes for the first time ever DevilDriver is playing a bunch of Coal Chamber songs and when you hear this shit with double kick and two guitars there’s no going back trust that! I waited years & tried to keep em separate but it’s time for me to embrace all that I am as a singer.

I might also add that unlike others cats like Zombie etc when I left Coal Chamber I never hung my hat on playing those songs with DevilDriver in hindsight & as I waited for things to reform it was a mistake and apologies to all who waited almost 20 years … for

One short lived Coal Chamber run and record so here I go into the future embracing all that’s ever been me as a vocalist and kept in mind this will ONLY BE SELECT SHOWS so I would get tickets Fast as I’m seeing already tons of venues are gonna sell out !

O it’s gonna be fucking fire ! Full production full light walls and hour 10 of BANGING MUSIC ! #DevilDriver”

And to all of you who fucking waited around all these years I appreciate you and now is the time to get a ticket cause we are about to blow the “roof” off of the coal chamber classics and new DevilDriver from our upcoming double record staggered release GET READY !

There’s times you fucking lay in bed and go “when is the right time” and that’s for anything or … what if someone passes away etc then what then when … and that pertains to everything as well so I thought it out & talked it out COAL CHAMBER MUSIC is YOURS not mine so….

Why wait , why hold people off why make people wait the older generation the new generation that want to hear @coalchamber songs sung by the guy who fucking recorded em so AMP IT UP W DOUBLE KICK W TWO GUITARS W SOBER @evilriver AND HOLY FUCK HOLD ON IM BRINGING A MONSTER!

Now think DevilDriver Now think that band doing these @coalchamber songs now think holy fuck how is the stage not gonna fucking implode”

My apologies to everyone that I  made wait in hopes that CC would truly come together i actually feel bad but now it’s time to deliver the goods and o boy do we!”

 

so yes for the first time ever DevilDriver is playing a bunch of coal chamber songs and when you hear this shit with double kick and two guitars there’s no going back trust that! I waited years & tried to keep em separate but it’s time for me to embrace all that I am as a singer
