If you like Kevin Devine, you should check out this piece on PropertyofZack -- seriously, that's the pitch.
One thing is, thereís a part of me that thinks Iím not radical enough. That Iím actually worse than someone who is politically ignorant because I have been exposed to all of these things, but I havenít fully gotten into some extreme way of living. I think itís been really torturous for some women that Iíve been in relationships with because Iíve had these bouts of ďwe donít do enoughĒ for picking the cause. Itís this really vague thing. What Iíve come to realize as Iíve gotten older is that thereís an invisible council in my head. If I am not taking care of myself, no matter what...

According to three or four news submitters, Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band had their car broken into in Washington DC over the weekend. I haven't seen any mention of this on Twitter or Facebook though, has anyone heard anything or found a way to donate some money to the band?

Kevin Devine hates Collective Soul's "December" in the latest AV Club Hatesong.
But it always felt to me like that band was a prime example of wolf in sheepís clothingóor sheep in wolfís clothing is maybe more appropriate. They were sort of capitalizing on that grunge, alternative-rock boom, but they were an adult-contemporary band. Even the guitars on the songs are not like anything anyone would ever confuse as menacing or anything like that.

Both of Kevin Devine's new albums debuted in the Billboard Top 200. Bubblegum entered at #133 (#2 heat seekers) and Bulldozer bowed at #143 (#3 heat seekers), selling 3,200 and 3,000 copies respectively. Huge congrats to Kevin!

This is absolutely one of the best conversations we've had yet on the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. A few weeks ago, Jason and I had the pleasure of speaking with Kevin Devine about his two new albums, Bulldozer and Bubblegum, the recording of said albums, crowd-sourcing, and more.

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.
Drew Beringer on 07/28/13 - 08:26 PM
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."

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.

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...
