Fresh off their tour with Cradle of Filth, DevilDriver are gearing up for the May 12 release of their 10th studio effort Dealing With Demons, Vol. 2 by releasing the album’s second single, “If Blood Is Life.”
Featuring footage taken directly from their latest stint on the road, the accompanying music video for “If Blood Is Life” showcases the high-octane nature of their shows, full of circle pits, crowd surfing, and rabid fans.
Speaking of the groove-laden track, Dez Fafara said “If Blood Is Life” is the kind of track that makes you headbang while also thinking about the impermanence of 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 will release on May 12 via Napalm Records, though you can preorder your copy today.
