DEVILDRIVER Frontman Checks In From The Road

DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara (ex-COAL CHAMBER) has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"How's everybody doing? We just did three shows, and then a day off. The first show in Columbus, OH was off the hook. It was good to see people pittin', and everyone hanging out afterwards talking to the band. Columbus, we'll be back soon.

"The next night was Detroit (Harpos). I've played this venue before, but I've never seen a pit like that night in Detroit. Much respect to everyone that came out to see us in Detroit, especially the 6 or 7 of Detroit's finest who showed up off duty and brought us a bottle of Jack Daniels. Talk about feeling welcome, DEVILDRIVER felt right at home in Detroit.

"Phil from [headliners] SUPERJOINT RITUAL has been giving us huge shout-outs every night. I want to personally say thank you to him, and much respect. Every night when we get off stage we sit and watch SJR, they are tight as fuck.

"The next night was Flint, MI at The Machine Shop. It's a great club, the promoters and crew there treated us amazing. The show that night was incredible. In Flint we definitely had to win the crowd over, but by the 3rd song, they all had their hands in the air and the place was pittin'.

"Tonight we'll be playing at The Vogue in Indianapolis. I'm already pacing back and forth waiting for tonight's show. The tour so far has been amazing, all the members of all the bands are just hanging out, drinking, and having a good time.

"I'll try to do daily dairies here forward, just had to slide into this first week of touring first. By mid next week, DEVILDRIVER will be hoping to post some live footage up for you.

"By the way, the tour is called 'A Lethal Dose Of American Touring 2003'. It's great to be respected by a band that we respect so far as I'm concerned, SJR is one of the best metal bands out there keeping heavy shit alive, and we're doing our best to follow suit.

"I also want to personally thank all the street team members who have been coming out to meet the band, and help spread the word for DEVILDRIVER. THANK YOU.

"Hey Cleveland, Chicago, we're coming in a few days. Hope you guys are ready, cuz we're fuckin' ready. And to those of you in Milwaukee, we'll see you at The Rave for a metal-fuckin'-throwdown."
