About this project

As we recored our debut album "Dead Woman Walkin," one year ago, we were very much a band in search of our sound. With that recording, we found it. In the over 200 shows we have played since its release, that sound has not only been refined, it has been taken to the next level. In February we decided to be bold and once again leave the security of a home and return to the road full-time. "The Devil Herself" is a body of work that represents a band forged in the fires of adversity. From catastrophes, to failures, to brushes with death and the judgment that springs from our decision to revolt against status quo, we have bled, cried, and screamed for joy and pain, all to bring the music that we so believe in to the people that believe in us. It hasn't been easy, but it has been the most rewarding year of our lives, yielding what we truly believe is a collection of the best work of our career to date. This album is for the misfits, the strange ones, the quiet storms, and the disenfranchised that are so often mistaken for malignant as they try to make their way in a society that favors style over substance and the illusion of normalcy over heartfelt individuality. "The Devil Herself" will feature 12 tracks, with an emphasis on our now-signature washboard/banjo latin-gypsy dance numbers, as well as several introspective guitar/bass pieces.  We are once again reaching out to our friends and fans  to help us bring this album to life. 

We are scheduled to begin recording with Jeff Hodges at Charleston Sound Studios in January of 2012, and will be touring the US constantly on our never-ending tour. The money raised will pay for the recording, mixing, mastering, graphic design, and initial printing of the album.  Thank you so much for your support. Music is our world, and we are so grateful to those that give us the opportunity to make it every day.
