DevilDriver have premiered the fifth part of the interview series for their upcoming covers album Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1. Entitled “The Cash Cabin,” you can check that out below. The album is due out on July 6th via Napalm Records.
DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara commented on being able to record at Johnny Cash’s famous studio:
I was very fortunate to record there and be able to sign the mantle. Like the mantle that Johnny Cash built in his cabin… it was unbelievable for me.” Dez adds, “Meeting John Carter Cash was an incredible thing… he told us some stuff his dad had done in there… I found it very interesting that a lot of these real country cats listen to metal. The first story John Carter Cash told us was about his father taking him to go see Ozzy.
Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, who appeared on the album, commented on this collaboration:
I sang the choruses… and then my wife Ana did some high parts here and there. It was exciting. We don’t do a lot of that kind of music in the cabin… we have tracked metal at my studio and a lot of rock n’ roll, a lot of loud guitars… but real metal, not that much. So, it was a blessing to have it there and be able to have a chance to be a part of something exciting and different..
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, who was also on the song, added:
[Dez] was like, do you want to sing “Ghost Riders” with me and John Carter Cash and I was like absolutely! Who wouldn’t want to? It was a lot of fun… I sat there and sweated and screamed… it was a good time!
