IT’S BEEN 72 HOURS SINCE THE RELEASE OF THE LAST NEW DEVILDRIVER SONG! SOMEBODY GET ON THAT SH*T, PRONTO!!!

DevilDriver’s new album, Beast, comes out in three weeks, and has twelve tracks on it — and as of today, with the debut of “Bring The Fight (To The Floor)” on Revolver‘s website, we’ve heard three of ’em. All within the past twenty-one days. The last one, “Coldblooded,” was released to the public just last Friday.

Holy shit. I actually like DevilDriver, and I have never, ever spent this much time thinking about them. I am in every way, shape, and form out of things to say about this record, and I haven’t even heard the whole thing yet. I assume I will have by Thursday, though, after Roadrunner releases another nine tracks, plus every b-side the band has ever recorded, as well as bonus audio of Dez Fafara looking for a toilet when he has the runs.

How will they fill the remaining time to promote the record before its release? If they debut one more song, we’ll have heard a third of the record already. I guess they could release a video…?

At least this song debut comes with a fascinating, insightful, in-depth interview. Check out this excerpt:

What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
Feedback about the record has been great and we are all pleased, as we worked very hard on this effort.

Well, THAT has “Pulitzer” written all over it. Barbara Walters couldn’t have done it any better.

Maybe I’m over-thinking this. I’m not in A&R. I don’t work for Roadrunner. Fafara has now had two successful bands; he obviously knows his job better than I do. Heck, everyone involved in Beast‘s creation is probably just happy we’re writing about it so much.

So, uh, yeah. Whatever, I guess. Check out the track here. Beast comes out February 22. Hopefully some of it will still be a surprise by the time of its release.
