During an interview with Full Metal Jackie Dez had this to say in reagrds to the “return” of Coal Chamber: “Unbelievable. Full circle. I mean, to get those guys back in my life and clean off hard drugs and want[ing] to do shows, it’s incredible. The feeling is incredible and the love had been just incredible as well. I woke up at 4:30 the other morning with my phone ringing off the hook and my Twitter, everything going crazy, it’s so good to see. After all these years, we haven’t played together in 10 years.

.

We’ve been going over the setlist and it’s been nothing but fun right now. I mean, going back and forth about a setlist with these guys just turns into jokes and hours of e-mails of jokes and we forget what we’re doing. So you realize that these guys are a big, big part of my life and I don’t even know if I’d be here with DevilDriver for Meegs [guitar] and Mikey drums], so it’s good to have them back in my life and getting ready to go do Coal Chamber shows.”

In whether or not the two former bassists of Coal Chamber will be returning both Nadja Peulen and Rayna Foss are both have been busy with their own lives and doing various other activities. Dez went on to say that “Rayna was not [asked to be a part of it]. Rayna has been out of the band for a very long time. We did speak to Nadja. She has other things going and it wasn’t really in the headspace where we were at as a band.

.

We found Chela; she’s Canadian and she’s a bad-ass player. She’s been playing for nearly 12 years. She plays five-string and it’s going to be good to have her on bass. She grew up with Coal Chamber. She’s only 26-27 years old. She knows the songs, and just hearing her on the phone, the excitement [in her voice], that’s really what I wanted brought to the table. Where Meegs and Mikey and I am right now, we’re really excited so we needed someone that filled that excitement drawer and she did for sure; she’s stoked.”

Coal Chamber is back and totally ready to shred it to the max!
