Tomorrow, one of our very favorite artists, Kevin Devine will release two new albums and we're celebrating both releases throughout the week. Today, you can check out our reviews of Bulldozer (from Ryan Dennehy) and Bubblegum (from yours truly). Tomorrow, you're supposed to pick up both albums. On Wednesday, we'll have a special "The Countdown" feature about Devine's fantastic discography and Friday will hold the latest AbsolutePunk.net Podcast episode with Kevin. For now though, stream the new albums and check out the two reviews and leave your thoughts and comments there.

Cool video alert. Some upstanding Internet citizen uploaded a full set from the Jesse Lacey (Brand New) / Kevin Devine acoustic tour that happened way back in the dark ages of 2007. The acoustic angst is in the replies.

You can stream a brand new Kevin Devine song titled "Bloodhound" as well as read a recent interview on PureVolume. It's off of Bubblegum, which hits stores on October 15th.
I kind of thought the crowd-funding thing was interesting but I had a whole mess of fear based somewhat ethical concerns. Most of which I addressed pretty explicitly in the essay that accompanies the Kickstarter campaign but I ultimately decided to do it because I wanted to do something different and see if either A, I was super misguided in thinking I had the kind of connection with the audience that I thought I had or B, I was correct in assuming that they're not concerned where the records come out label-wise as...

Earlier this year, Kevin Devine raised well over his Kickstarter goal to fund and release two albums in 2013. We're fortunate to be able to exclusively release the first song off the Jesse Lacey-produced Bubblegum (aka LP8, more album details here). The song is called "Private First Class" and it is about Bradley Manning, the United States Army soldier arrested in May 2010 in Iraq on suspicion of having passed classified material to the website WikiLeaks. You can check out the song in the replies and I think it's one of the best songs Kevin has ever released. More details on both albums will be coming soon, but for now check out the new song and let us know what you think.

In case you forgot, Kevin Devine is planning on releasing two full-lengths this year. He just tweeted that the first of those two records is "finished & named" and that the second one is "beginning to be mixed."

PropertyOfZack has published a pretty massive interview with Kevin Devine and Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra), which can read here. They discussed upcoming RSD releases, the recording schedules for each band, and more.
KD: Well theyíre notÖ The Jesse one is a rock record and itís like a ROCK record. More than anything Iíve ever worked on so far.
AH: Yeah itís bloodthirsty. Sick. It is. Iíve only heard really bad sounding demos, but itís a version of Kevin. Itís a version of him thatís kind of this punky, bloodthirsty, loud rock thing. And you can hear the Jesse influence. Thereís this section that goes to half time in one of these songs that I really like. It was totally a momment...

Kevin Devine started today, and then later today finished, a moderately lofty Kickstarter campaign to fund his next two full-length records. According to the description Devine offered up on his project page, he wanted to raise a sum of $50,000 to fund the recording and releasing of one solo and one full-band album. These funds would go toward costs like the recording, producing, manufacturing, publicizing and marketing of the records; furthermore, the funds would help Devine tour and promote the albums following their release.

When I write "moderately lofty," I mean it. Devine pegging the costs here at $50,000 is certainly not ridiculous. He's seen some success as a musician, at...

Ryan Russell has posted a video playlist of his favorite Nervous Energies sessions from 2012. After the favorites--which include Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, Kevin Devine playing a Miracle of '86 song, Peelander-Z acting really weird and Basement in what was their last session--are two new videos that weren't released earlier this year. The two new ones are Cory Branan covering Big Star and White Wives covering Neutral Milk Hotel.
