Pete Bernhard, Lucia Turino, and Cooper McBean, aka The Devil Makes Three are a HearYa staple. Chains Are Broken is the trio’s first album of original tune’s since 2013’s I’m A Stranger Here and the first to include a drummer, Stefan Amidon, for the proceedings. I’ve seen them with Stefan a few times so it isn’t completely foreign to me. New West Records will be releasing this bad boy on August 24th. Here’s some more info on the album.

For as much as The Devil Makes Three remain rooted in troubadour traditions of wandering folk, Delta blues, whiskey-soaked ragtime, and reckless rock ‘n’ roll, the band nods to the revolutionary unrest of author James Baldwin, the no-holds barred disillusionment of Ernest Hemingway, and Southern Gothic malaise of Flannery O’Connor. In that respect, Chains Are Broken resembles a dusty leather bound book of short stories from some bygone era. “I always want our songs to unfold like short stories,” affirms Pete Bernhard. “You could think of them as chapters of a book.
