About Devil Driver
DevilDriver is an American heavy metal band from Santa Barbara, California, formed in 2002. Coal Chamber vocalist Dez Fafara was disappointed with the direction Coal Chamber was going musically, and met musicians who had a similar music interest at a barbecue and bar. Fafara, guitarists Evan Pitts and Jeff Kendrick, bassist Jon Miller, and then drummer John Boecklin formed Deathride. However, due to copyright issues and the name being taken by several bands, Deathride changed its name to DevilDriver, which refers to bells Italian witches used to drive evil forces away.
