After coordinating a historic Kickstarter campaign a few months back that raised nearly $115,000, Kevin Devine has made good on his promise and has announced that his two new records are completely finished.
Bulldozer, aka "The Solo Record", and the Jesse Lacey-produced Bubblegum, aka "The Goddamn Band rock record", will both be available October 15th via Devine's own label imprint Devinyl Records (in partnership with the Manchester Orchestra's Favorite Gentlemen Records and Brand New's own label Procrastinate! Music Traitors Records).
Even Devine admits that he likes to "keep it in The Family".
Devine is currently streaming the first song off Bubblegum titled "Private First Class", a song about the United States Army solider named Bradley Manning who was arrested in 2010 on accusations of leaking classified goverment information via Wikileaks. Listen to "Private First Class" here!
In tandem with the release of his two new albums, Devine and The Goddamn Band will be hitting the road this fall with Now, Now and and Harrison Hudson in support of Bubblegum. The full list of dates can be found below.
Be sure to check out the full statement from Devine himself on his Facebook page.
