Fresh off a sold-out headlining show at Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Devil Makes Three are proud to announce their new album, REDEMPTION & RUIN  set for release August 26th on New West Records. The album will be available digitally, on CD, and on vinyl.
The band are set to play four UK/Eire shows this month before heading out on an extensive US tour in the fall.

REDEMPTION & RUIN  is a concept project of 12 handpicked songs that bring fans in on the repertoire and legacy that have inspired The Devil Makes Three from before they founded the band. Divided in to two sides, the subjects of “redemption” and “ruin” are explored through various works by Muddy Waters, Tampa Red, Townes Van Zandt, Tom Waits, Hank Williams, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson to name a few and The Devil Makes Three’s interpretations of these songs also feature an all-star cast of guest stars like Emmylou Harris, Tim O’Brien, Jerry Douglas, Darrell Scott and guitar great Duane Eddy. Pete, Cooper and Lucia’s mutual love of these songs, their exploration of the human condition and the therapeutic keening of the blues melodies has been found throughout their albums of original material but here on Redemption & Ruin their bringing listeners directly to the source point of their inspiration.
The Devil Makes Three have been simplistically tagged as everything from punk to bluegrass to rockabilly, but as one sweaty show will dispel and clarify; they know and fully appreciate the tradition, but really what they do is throw down. In 15 years together they’ve played just about every well worn bar and theatre in America and have quietly built such a massive following that they now headline amphitheaters and festivals and sell thousands of tickets a night.
