The Devil Makes Three Fall Tour Dates, New Album Out October 29

DMTThis fall The Devil Makes Three will embark upon a month long tour of the United States in support of their forthcoming full-length release I’m A Stranger Here, out October 29 on New West Records. The Santa Cruz, Calif. by way of Vermont trio are incredibly excited to showcase songs from the new Buddy Miller-produced album to their fervently supportive and steadily growing fanbase. On the heels of the band’s show-stopping performance at the recent American Music Festival in Nashville, and a return to San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival this Sunday, October 6th, the fall tour will kick off Halloween night in Colorado Springs and include shows at Webster Hall in New York, 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. and the Metro in Chicago.


Part road songs, part heartbreakers and part barnburners, I’m A Stranger Here is described by frontman Pete Bernhard as a “very dark record thematically, lyrically and sonically.” The album is also the band’s biggest sounding one to date. Recorded at Dan Auberbach’s (The Black Keys) Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, the 10-track collection features the drummer-less acoustic threesome of singer/guitarist Bernhard, guitarist/banjoist Cooper McBean and stand up bassist Lucia Turino coloring their songs with an expanded sonic palette – percussion, strings, electric guitar, fiddle, vibes and a variety of horns are used to powerful effect.
