When Jon Miller was 15, he decided to form a band with his high school friends Jeff Kendrick and John Boecklin. The group initially called themselves Area-51, and they started off by playing cover versions of Metallica songs, as well as Pantera and Slayer songs. There was never any doubt in their minds that they wanted to keep their band linked to heavy metal. Shortly after they started performing local gigs, the members of Area-51 met vocalist Dez Fafara of Coal Chamber. When Fafara decided that he wanted to get out of Coal Chamber, he approached Miller, Kendrick, and Boecklin because he liked their heavy metal music style. With the addition of Fafara, the band had become a bigger force in the music scene, eventually changing their name to Deathride and later to DevilDriver.
The group released their self titled debut album in 2003, but it was poorly received by critics and by the masses. The primary songwriter of the album, Evan Pitts, left the band, making room for Mike Spreitzer to join. With a new songwriter and a new focus, DevilDriver got to work on creating new music, and their second album, The Fury of Our Maker's Hand. With these album, DevilDriver experienced significant success, even making it onto the Billboard 200. The album even debuted at the number one spot on the Top Heatseakers chart, and people all around the world started to devour DevilDriver's new tunes.
Over the course of the band's career, they have toured extensively throughout the world and have released several more hit albums.
