DevilDriver drummer John Boecklin has checked in with the following studio update:
The record is completely tracked!! This album certainly has a more serious and focused vibe that we may have missed in previous efforts. One song in particular is the craziest double bass patterns I've ever done, guitar work you would not expect from us, mixed in with a really fresh vocal approach Completely new from dez . Its vibe is very new for us, but still totally brutal. I guess talking about it won't do much, I'm just trying to state that you won't be disappointed with us if you are devildriver fan. Yet, there will be some surprises in "pray for villains" that are refreshing. In case someone didn't read it already, "pray for villains" is the album title. I'm very proud of every member for stepping it up!
