Devil's Brigade "Self Titled" CD


Devil’s Brigade are an all-star punk group featuring Matt Freeman and Tim Armstrong of Rancid and DJ Bonebrake, drummer of X and the Knitters. Rancid fans have always cherished Matt’s deep punk growl on his featured songs on Rancid albums, and now Devil’s Brigade brings his singing, rockabilly-inspired bass slap, and classic punk songwriting to the fore. With Tim Armstrong’s Duane Eddy lead guitar and the rock-steady rhythm of DJ Bonebrake, Devil’s Brigade offers up twelve songs that mix equal parts Johnny Cash, the Pogues, and Sun rockabilly, in a combustible cocktail that will have fans slamming on this fall’s tour with the Street Dogs. On tracks like “Bridge of Gold” with vocals by Armstrong, the band stretches out, adding mandolin and banjo to their sound, while “Ride Harley Ride” features some slinky vibraphone. With guest vocals from Rancid’s Lars Frederikson, thousands of Rancid fans will want to own this album, but with a national tour this fall, Devil’s Brigade will have a life all of their own.
