DevilDriver Premiere Cover Of Hank 3’s “Country Heroes”
DevilDriver have premiered their cover of Hank 3‘s song “Country Heroes” today. You can check that out below. The song features Hank 3 himself and is from the band’s upcoming covers album Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 which is due out on July 6th via Napalm Records.
Frontman Dez Fafara commented:
“This record would not have meant as much to me without having Hank 3 on board. He is one of the most authentic and real outlaw country artists out there right now. I chose to record ‘Country Heroes‘ because the lyrics are extremely well-written, and using the names of all the outlaws within the song really does the song justice. ‘I’m drinking some George Jones and little bit a Coe…’ etc., that is genius writing from Hank 3 and should be recognized as such.
I’ve heard this song as ‘heavy’ in my head for a very long time, so to re-track it and have Hank 3 appear only to sing almost Ozzy-ish is just an over the top treat to the ears! Enjoy”
