Blues

Talking Freddie Gray Blues
I’m talking Freddie Gray blues
I’m talking what happened to you
You were just 25
When they ended your life
When “to serve & protect”
Meant break your leg, snap your neck
Meant to kill you, to sever your spine
No matter what, there’s no good reason why
When I’m talking these killer cop blues
I’m kinda talking my family to you
See, my dad was a cop
And his dad was a cop
And my uncles were cops
And my cousins were cops
I’m partly here because of cops
And I love all those cops
And I know not every cop
Is a racist, murdering cop
But this is bigger than the people I love
The system’s broken
Not breaking
It’s done
I’m talking white privilege blues
I’m talking confession to you
I can’t know what it’s like
To be afraid all my life
Looking over my shoulder
Behind each officer, a coroner
Entrenched inequality
No access, no empathy
Crushed in stacked decks
Institutions & death
This is not my reality
I’m afforded the luxury
Of shaking my head
I shut the screen, go to bed
I can turn off what you never can
And watch it happen again and again (and again and again and again and again, and again)
I’m talking Freddie Gray blues
I’m talking Freddie Gray blues

Brother’s Blood Vinyl Re-Issue Info

unnamed

 

Friends,

I’m incredibly excited to to announce the vinyl reissue of Brother’s Blood, in continued partnership with Bad Timing and Favorite Gentlemen. 2xLP, including the ‘I Could Be With Anyone’ tour EP, pre orders begin tomorrow at 2:00pm EST here: http://bit.ly/KD_BB

A portion of proceeds to the Mike Skinner Memorial Fund. All information below. Don’t buy the first one for exorbitant prices on eBay.  It’s back.

Xo,

KD

________________________________________________________________________________________

Kevin Devine‘s Brothers Blood will be receiving a reissue via Bad Timing Records, Devinyl Records and Favorite Gentlemen Recordings. Brother’s Blood will be available for pre-orders as a double LP on Bad Timing’s webstore tomorrowWednesday the 14th at 2 PM EST. Records are set to start shipping in two weeks. The D-side of the release features songs from Devine’s I Could Be With Anyone EP. This release is the latest in a partnership between Kevin Devine, Bad Timing Records, Devinyl Records and Favorite Gentlemen Recordings that will continue throughout 2015. A huge announcement about brand-new music will be coming near the end of January!

When Kevin Devine released Brother’s Blood in 2009, he cemented himself as one of the most prolific singer-songwriters of the indie-rock community. Devine’s best selling record to date softly dances song to song while Devine delivers lyrics sometimes brilliantly introspective and sometimes bitingly political. With years of songwriting experience under his belt, Kevin Devine marked his place as a cult favorite in the indie rock world with the release of Brother’s Blood, and has continued to prove himself as the most interesting songwriter in the scene since. This classic Kevin Devine release is accompanied by never-before-pressed songs from  the I Could Be With Anyone EP, adding a new curve-ball for long term fans.

Kevin Devine recently announced two tours beginning in February of 2015. The first is a solo tour with Into It. Over It. and Laura Stevenson; the second is a full-band tour featuring The Goddamn Band with Dads and Field Mouse. Check out all dates for both tours HERE.

Pre-order the double LP reissue of Brother’s Blood HEREtomorrow at 2 PM EST.
