After years of touring and playing music alongside Brand New, Kevin Devine has announced that for the foreseeable future he will be touring as a member of Brand New, playing guitar and singing harmonies. Recently Devine was seen onstage playing with Brand New for their past few performances, one at High and Low Festival in San Bernardino (see photo below) and at The Warfield in San Francisco. Tucked away in the back, Devine compliments their music well, especially the new music from Brand New's latest release, "Science Fiction."
Read Devine's full announcement statement below:
So, for the foreseeable future, I’ll be touring as a member of Brand New, playing guitar & singing harmonies.
I’ve been playing music with & around Brand New in various ways for basically our entire careers; I love & am proud of them, think they’ve made a(nother) dynamic, special record, and take seriously the opportunity to perform as a part of their band, to help execute their vision & hopefully augment their already plenty-formidable stature.
(It’s also really fun.)
The reason for saying anything in public is to share that I’ll be quieting down the KD world for a while. There will still be a handful of odd shows here & there, and a few non-tour- or proper-record-related projects, but it feels good to do something else, take stock & decide what comes next, and “go away” a bit in some core sense.
That’s it. Thanks as always & be good to each other - these are scary, brutal, psychedelic times, but you’re not alone.
See you out there,
