The Devil makes them do it

The quartet is gearing up for a busy summer, with shows at the Everyman, the Mediator, and AS220. And Mercure notes there is plenty of material on the burner for another full-length. “There are 15 to 20 tracks that weren’t even considered for Devil Music, plus another half-dozen we’ve written since. “Some things won’t change too much, but we’re not in this to make the same album over and over again,” Mercure said.

Pick up The Benedictions Play Devil Music at or iTunes, and visit for live dates.
