Devildriver have shared their cover of Copperhead Road, featuring 36 Crazyfists vocalist Brock Lindow.
Originally written and recorded by country music legend Steve Earle in 1988, the track will feature on the California band’s upcoming collection of country-gone-metal anthems, ‘Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol 1‘, which is set to arrive this Friday, July 6, through Napalm Records. In addition to Lindow’s contribution, the record also boasts collaborations with Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe and Mark Morton, Hank3, John Carter Cash, Wednesday 13 and more.
Copperhead Road follows Dez Fafara and band’s previously shared takes on outlaw classic Ghost Riders in the Sky, featuring John Carter Cash, Ana Cristina Cash and Randy Blythe, and Country Heroes featuring Hank3. Speaking about the new cover, Fafara said:
“I have always loved this story of running moonshine and running from the cops, and having Brock on this song was a smart move as his unique voice is absolutely perfect for it. I’m proud to have him on this record!”
