I like when bands talk shit about DevilDriver. I, myself, talk shit about DevilDriver on an almost monthly basis, so, I feel a kinship with groups that rail against Dez Fartfarta and his gang of half-wits.
Bellum is a band featuring former members of DevilDriver, which makes their shit talk even better.
Jonathan Miller quit the band because his drug use got out of hand, and Evan Pitts was a founding member of the band.
In this interview, the guys explain there’s some bad blood between them and DevilDriver’s current lineup.
Says Miller in the interview:
“I haven’t been to a single show this summer. I want to go see King Diamond on Halloween but it is sold out. Santa Barbara doesn’t get many metal shows. The last show I went to go see was DevilDriver and WhiteChapel at the House of Blues in L.A. I wanted to go visit the band and crew and give them hugs. Somehow they caught wind of me making the trip down there and a couple of the guys emailed me and told me I wasn’t welcome and advised me not to approach them. Just weird rockstar stuff. I wish them the best though.”
Miller and Pitts said neither talks to Dez, and none of the band’s members were supportive of Miller’s recover.
“The rest of the band wiped their hands of me” says Miller. “They did the same to Evan. I am OK with that though. It hurt at times, but I have played a part in hurting people’s feelings too. I am just trying to do the next right thing and practice kindness and tolerance.”
“I was able to get away from the evil that was following and tormenting me… threatening me with black magic and trying to ruin my relationships and discredit my writing of the first album. FUCK YOU for discrediting me on the first album. That was my soul on a CD. You know who you are. You will go to HELL for what you did.”
Dez practices black magic? That just made him even more lame than he was before.
Thanks to Jonathan for the head’s up.
