DEVILDRIVER has posted the second webisode from the second Thrash And Burn Tour, which is set to run through August 30. DEVILDRIVER is headlining the trek, which features support from EMMURE, DESPISED ICON, MY CHILDREN MY BRIDE, VEIL OF MAYA, FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS, OCEANO, PERIPHERY and THY WILL BE DONE.
“Pray For Villains”, the fourth full-length album from DEVILDRIVER, sold around 14,600 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 35 on The Billboard 200 chart.
DEVILDRIVER’s previous album, 2007’s “The Last Kind Words”, shifted a little more than 14,000 copies during its first week of release to debut at No. 48 — around 40 percent more than the opening-week number of 2005’s “The Fury of Our Maker’s Hand”, which premiered at No. 177 with sales of 10,400.
“Pray For Villains” was released on July 14 via Roadrunner Records. The effort — which was also made available as a special-edition CD/DVD package featuring three bonus tracks, a behind-the-scenes DVD and expanded artwork — was recorded at Edge of the Earth studios in Los Angeles with producer Logan Mader (FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, GOJIRA, DIVINE HERESY).
