Directed by Blake Behnam and Nic Hill, the heartening clip can now also be seen here, while the soaring, soulful track can be downloaded as a free MP3 as well. Gorbel, formerly of The Honorary Title, released Devil's Made A New Friend on August 31st via Burning-house Records/Gorbel music.Having just wrapped a month-long tour with Fun and Steel Train, Gorbel began a three-week run supporting Hanson last night at the House of Blues in Dallas, TX.

Gorbel will also headline the Back Booth in Orlando, FL, on November 7th and Go Bar in Athens, GA, on Nov. 11th, in addition to a show at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on December 8th.

Gorbel, after releasing albums under The Honorary Title moniker since 2003, has embarked on a new career as a solo artist with Devil's Made A New Friend.

Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers on U.S. Tour

Hugh Cornwell returns to the US after a successful sold out UK tour at 02 Academy venues. He is a man with equal parts grit and wit.  He has been an acclaimed writer and live performer since his time as the primary songwriter, singer, and guitarist of punk and new wave legends The Stranglers.  His recently released eighth album, Hooverdam, produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Liam Watson (White Stripes - ‘Elephant’) is an eloquent and exciting mix of rhythm & blues, rock and post-punk.  Hugh will also cross the Atlantic this Spring and treat his US fans to his fiery live show.

Though he may be one of the UK’s finest talents, Hugh’s music has always reached far beyond his homeland.  Fittingly, Hooverdam is now available worldwide from his website, which can be viewed in twelve languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Farsi, Russian, Mandarin, Turkish, Italian and Japanese).  The album is available as a free download and can also be purchased on vinyl and as a triple-sleeved digi-pak, featuring both CD album and live studio performance DVD ‘Blueprint’ in one package.

The upcoming US tour includes a performance in San Francisco as part of the Jay Siegan Presents “In The Name Of Love”, a series of concerts to raise money for the Haiti relief effort.  Hugh will be playing along with special guest Kristeen Young at San Francisco’s Red Devil Lounge on March 31st. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders for the victims of Haiti.

Devil Makes Three front man Pete Bernhard books solo gigs

After opening for Sea Sick Steve in NYC last week, Pete’s solo performances are a far bit different from his primary band but one key element remains the same - his defining vocal style, unique phrasing and his distinctive point of view.
 


devil-makes-threeAll the while, The Devil Makes Three "Do Wrong Right" continues to gain momentum.   After selling out shows all across the country via word of mouth from fans and friends, Do Wrong Right garners its 16th straight week on in the Top 10 of the Billboard Bluegrass Charts and the album continues to sell strongly each week.  The album holds steadily in heavy rotation on the college charts along with charting on the Americana/Jamband Chart.

Check out The Devil Makes Three LIVE on KEXP Performing "Do Wrong Right."  The Devil Makes Three Live @ KEXP was released digitally on 8.11. The EP includes four tracks played live in the studio of the famous Seattle based radio station and an interview.

The Devil Makes Three kicks off their Fall tour with gigs at Bumbershoot and Earthdance Peace Festival.

The Devil Makes Three quite possibly are the best band that you have never heard of. Constantly on tour, selling out dates across the country and in their neck of the woods on the West Coast, this band is busy packing their shows night after night, largely thanks to word of mouth.

Over the past 7 years, The Devil Makes Three have garnered fans the old school way - playing a city, making friends, conquering fans and moving on. When they hit the next town, venues are packed with folks that heard from a friend in a city that the band had played before.

Because of this, The Devil Makes Three have established thousands of die-hard and devout fans.

Devil Makes Three leader Pete Bernhard steps out solo

Pete will be playing solo dates this summer and will be doing substantial touring around the release of the record. Pete will also be touting with The Devil Makes Three on their dates in October and November.

pete-bernhardMore about Pete Bernhard:
On his second solo album, Straight Line (his first solo commercial release),  Pete lays down a set of his more driving numbers.  He focuses on songs that he felt needed drums and weren’t suited for the all-acoustic old-country/blues/punk outfit The Devil Makes Three. His solo set has a  no-holds-barred feel about it and lyrical fearlessness that one only finds in the truly liberated – feeling no pressure of fitting into a mold. There’s folk, funky New Orleans soul, blues, rock and other genres craft fully melded into a seamless and natural combination that is, like The Devil Makes Three, extremely difficult to place into a single genre.  This may be the biggest similarity to Pete’s primary band – the music crosses many boundaries.  You feel it, you relate to it, it’s like an old friend you’ve never met before.  You have no idea what it is or what to call it.

Pete’s lyrics are thoughtful and inquisitive, often with painted with his well-known sarcasm and irony. He questions the status quo frequently, most notably on his song “Orphan”.  Would you rather be an orphan or a slave? Some might go through their entire lives obliviously, never asking or answering a question like this but Pete has no interest in shirking life’s tougher dilemmas.  “I got to thinking how everyone has some idea about how you should be and what you should and shouldn’t say.  Trying to pay attention to all that can be demanding.  It’s about how people are never satisfied,” he explained. “Pray For Rain” shines a spotlight on the mindless, sheep-like mentality of those who worship at the altar of consumerism.  Straight Line is almost exclusively original compositions, with one cover, “Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold” from the great Townes Van Zandt. He reinvents the folk classic with wailing B3 organ and arrangements that bring to mind the best of The Band.

Pete hails from a small, liberal community in Vermont with a family rife with musicians. His father played guitar and wrote songs, his brother attended Berklee School of Music and plays guitar and an aunt who was a folk musician. Immersed in music, he was drawn to older, traditional  blues from a young age, and also studied the style and aesthetics of music traditions like New Orleans R&B and country while simultaneously getting caught up in punk rock. He headed west as a young man, first to Nashville, then on to Washington State, where he formed a band with a childhood friend and hit the road. When they broke down one day in Santa Cruz, California, they stayed with a fellow Vermonter who was in school – The Devil Makes Three was born.

pete-bernhardThe Devil Makes Three has developed an audience that encompasses just about every kind of music fan from punk rockers to Deadheads, bluegrass barflies and rockabilly fanatics to indie rock kids. “We’re not really a genre-specified band,” he concludes, “I’ve  actually had people come up to me and say, ‘I don’t listen to anything but  hip-hop, but I love The Devil Makes Three. I think we’ve always tried to  keep our songwriting honest and natural, I guess that ends up making it difficult to really define our band. That always keeps things really exciting.”

With a successful band and limited free time, one  might wonder when Pete Bernhard has time to work on his solo music, but that question is easily answered, he told Santa Cruz’s Good Times. “Before, we  were all working jobs and playing in the band and that took all my time. Now we don’t work, so going solo keeps me busy. When The Devil Makes Three goes off the road for a month or two, it gives me time to try something new with my solo songs. I have no interest in stopping.” He will continue to  both question and reveal the truth through his songwriting, on his record and on the road.
