Devildriver has announced that they will be embarking on a co-headline tour this fall with Trivium with support coming from After The Burial and Sylosis. Devildriver will be touring in support of their upcoming album Winter Kills, which comes out August 27th via Napalm Records (pre-order here).
Frontman Dez Fafara comments, “It’s been almost a year since Devildriver have toured the US. I am stoked to finally be getting the chance to go back out and hit the road with “The Groove Machine”! This tour will be a mixture of Devildriver favorites and a bunch of new stuff off of our new record Winter Kills. I cannot wait for the record to come out and to get back to what we do best, play live. Touring with our friends in Trivium, After the Burial and Sylosis is just the fucking bonus! Come on out for a great night of metal, get ready to get down and dirty, see you in the pit!”

Several new acts have been added to the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival XV today, including Allegaon, Alpha & Omega, Born Low, MurderDeathKill, Dark Sermon, Trapped Under Ice, and The Dillinger Escape Plan.

Starting on Thursday, Born Of Osiris will be hitting the road with Unearth for the month of November. Support will also come from The Contortionist, Obey The Brave, and Wolves At The Gate. Then, in February, the band will be touring Europe with After The Burial, Monuments, and The Haarp Machine.
However, the band is not only content hitting the road. They’ve also announced that they are close to completing the songwriting process for their follow-up to The Discovery and will enter the studio in the spring with Nick Sampson (I Am Abomination) to track the new effort.
Lee McKinney (guitars) states: “I would say the direction of this album is along the lines of The Discovery, but definitely a lot heavier and a lot more focused when it comes to song structure. We’re trying to give each song a powerful, thematic feel. This next record takes all of the best aspects of The Discovery and develops the ideas even further. We already have so much material that we plan on revising and refining over the next few months. While we do that we will still continue to write more and in the end I think we’ll pick the strongest 10-12 songs so we can drop the best BORN OF OSIRIS record to date.”

Yesterday, After The Burial debuted their video for Pendulum, which was shot at an all girls Catholic school (god I love those outfits…). Well, turns out one video just isn’t enough for these guys. Greedy bastards… Well, today the bring us a video for Your Troubles Will Cease And Fortune Will Smile Upon You. This, by the way, is one of many candidates for “Longest song title”.
After The Burial wanted to push some boundaries when the idea for filming a video for Pendulum came up. So what better way to do that than by filming it at an all-girls Catholic school? Kudos to you gentlemen for the brilliant idea. My eyes appreciated the outfits and my second brain took over for a few minutes. Not that a few minutes is my average time, haha. Oh no, it’s usually a few seconds!

Editor’s Note: The art show is in Augusta, not Atlanta. Album artist Aaron Crawford will be premiering his first solo art show, ‘Pause And Claws’, on May 6th at Sky City in downtown Augusta. The art pieces center around strange and wondrous (read: terrifying) animals straight from Aaron’s mind. Aaron has done artwork for such bands as Attila, Suicide Silence, After The Burial, Veil Of Maya, Kittie, The Used, and more. Check out some examples after the jump as well as an exclusive quote for Bloody-Disgusting.
As I Lay Dying have released a video for ‘Anodyne Sea’ off their latest album, ‘The Powerless Rise’ exclusively on CraveOnline.com. Apparently, a new form of video technology was created specifically for this video in which a Nikon D7000 HD-SLR camera and a Teradek Cube were attached to a helmet to create the “first-person” illusion. Funny, haven’t I seen that before in Smack My Bitch Up (careful, that link is NSFW)?
As I Lay Dying will be hitting the road in February with Winds of Plague and After The Burial. Check out the tour dates after the jump.
As I Lay Dying have announced their first 2011 headlining tour with direct support coming from Winds Of Plague and After The Burial (interview here).

If you’re planning on hitting up one of these shows, let us know which one and how long it’s been since you’ve seen AILD.
It seems lately that the big craze now is 7 or 8 string guitars: The lower the tuning, the more brutal the music. At least, that’s what bands think. More often than not, poor tones and generic songwriting plague what could otherwise be an interesting use of extended range instruments. After The Burial (interview here) tout their dual wielding 8 string guitarists as a huge part of their appeal. So does it help them or hinder them on their latest endeavor, ‘In Dreams’? Check out after the jump.
Bloody Disgusting has just scored an exclusive audio interview with Trent Hafdahl, guitarist of After The Burial.
