Frontman Dez Fafara commented on the success of Winter Kills: "From the whole Devildriver family and myself we would like to say thank you to our supporters/musicians who helped spread the word! Thank you to Maria Ouellette and Jon Freeman of Napalm Records for working their ass off to get Winter Kills out to all of you! This is a HUGE victory and we are all very excited to start touring!"
