Device, the side project of Disturbed frontman David Draiman, released their self-titled debut album on Tuesday. Draiman said while he originally expected to only have Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale contribute to the album, he wound up recruiting the rest of the guests who appear on the release -- System of a Down singer Serj Tankian, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Black Sabbath bassist Geezer Butler and former Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes -- while having dinner with them in Los Angeles:
"Serj and Tom and I have been friends for years and we’d always talked about doing something together one day. And then the next day, I was invited by Glenn and went to dinner and we had Kenny Aronoff at the table and Geezer Butler and it came up in dinner conversation that Glenn had decided to do a track on the record and so Geezer asked me about it and I’m like "Yeah, would you like to do a track too," and he said, "Oh, I’d love to." And so before I know it, I have five guests on the record."
You can see Device live in concert at Rockfest this July in Cadott, Wisconsin.
