DevilDriver’s “Nest Of Vipers” Music Video Has Some Serious Bite



Devildriver by Jeremy Saffer

DevilDriver will return with a double album titled Dealing With Demons, the first volume of which, Dealing With Demons I, comes out on October 9th, via Napalm Records. Today, though, the band has unveiled the third single and Vicente Cordero-directed video for the new track, “Nest Of Vipers,” which follows both “Keep Away From Me” and “Iona.”

Commenting on the video, frontman Dez Fafara shares, “This is my first co-written lyric on any DevilDriver track with another band member, penned with our guitarist Neal Tiemann. Working with Neal is a good time. We always want what’s best for the song. Lyrically, the chorus says it all – ‘the king’s sworn men make perfect liars.’ This is the cold, hard truth, as people’s loyalties are often bought and sold. The lyric ‘she sleeps with bones beside her’ refers to another theme touched upon in this track – a woman laying in misery next to her ‘bones’ of contention, harboring guilt as her loyalties are also bought and sold… It’s all a sad state of affairs once you get into that bought and sold mentality, whether it’s with your work or friendships.”
