DevilDriver guitarist Mike Spreitzer had an new interview with Ireland’s Dublin Concerts. An excerpt is below regarding a new album:
Q: Winter Kills has already been out eight months, and you guys seem to be on an eighteen month to two year album release cycle. So have you looked forward to the next album?
Mike: “We’ve already started writing for it. I know Boecklin (drums) has a bunch of songs. I haven’t really had a lot of time to write because I just moved into a new house and I’ve been building a studio in my garage to replace the studio that I have in my parents house.” Boecklin’s already got probably like somewhere between three and five songs written, and a tentative date for recording of November/December, which means the record will probably be out some time next summer.”

I had flights booked for him to come back.
