Brooklyn based artist Kevin Devine has announced a new run of dates for 2014 following the success of the dual release of his two albums Bubblegum and Bulldozer via Big Scary Monsters last year. The tour starts with a show at Oxford’s Truck Festival, followed by 10 headline shows across the whole of the UK.
Following one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns ever, Kevin recorded and released two distinctly different, yet equally lauded albums. Bubblegum was recorded with the Goddamn Band and is power-pop/rock record full of massive, fuzzy hooks. The albums raw edge was brought to life by producer Jesse Lacey, of the band Brand New. Bulldozer is a more folk-pop led album, produced by long time collaborator and Elliott Smith/Guided By Voices producer Rob Schnapf and features guest vocals from Isobel Campbell.
Following the releases of the two albums and a short run of UK dates in February this year, Kevin is about to embark on dates in the US with Manchester Orchestra and Balance and Composure.
Kevin has just unveiled the impossible to forget video to his track ‘Little Bulldozer’. The hilarious, tongue-in-cheek pop video parody, with its unforgettable choreography and costume choices, features a very special cameo at the end, and is available to watch now on YouTube.
