Since early 2015, Kevin Devine has been unveiling his Devinyl Splits Series, a six-7" series featuring Devine teaming up with a different partner every release. So far, the series has included Devine and Matthew Caws of Nada Surf covering each other's songs, Devine and Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy each recording an intimate original song (the first solo song ever released from Graves), Devine and Tigers Jaw each taking on a song by The Cure, Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band releasing their first new song since Bubblegum, while Cymbals Eat Guitars released their first new song since Lose on Devinyl Splits No. 4, and Devine and Owen each contributing a beautiful acoustic original on Devinyl Splits No. 5. The final partner has now been announced as Jesse Lacey of Brand New! Both artists cover R.E.M songs on their new split. All six performers appeared at the unique & sold-out Devinyl Splits performances Devinyl curated in December in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and Boston.
Pre-orders for Devinyl Splits No. 6 will be available Thursday, March 3rd at 2 PM EST digitally and on vinyl via Bad Timing Records. Devinyl Splits No. 1-5, are now available via Bad Timing Records.
