Exclusive Video: Craig Owens and Chiodos Discuss the Band’s Reformation and New Album, Devil
Today, RevolverMag.com presents an exclusive video by Chiodos. In the clip, which you can check out below, frontman Craig Owens and the rest of the band discuss their reformation and upcoming album, Devil, which will be released April 1 through Razor & Tie.
The 13-track set finds Owens and drummer Derrick Frost reunited with Bradley Bell, Pat Mcmanaman and Matt Goddard. The sessions mark the first Chiodos album to feature lead guitarist Thomas Erak (The Fall Of Troy).
The album’s title reflects Owens’ — and, inevitably, the band’s — daily struggle to stay the course in living a productive life amid daily adversities.
“Devil isn’t something I thought long and hard about,” Owens says. “It is something that hit me, and hard. I asked myself if I was brave enough to stand behind such a strong, emotionally evoking word, and I knew right then that was it. This title is not to be confused with the muscled, red=horned man surrounded by fire. This is about the temptations of everyday life, the things that become regrets, the moments where you are forced to make a choice that will determine how it is that you look at yourself for the rest of your life. This album is my definition of Devil.”
Devil was produced by David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Stone Sour) and mixed by Josh Wilbur.
