The Devil Makes Three announce tour, debut album

If you didn't know any better, you might think The Devil Makes Three originated from pretty much anywhere BUT Southern California. The drummer-less trio of of Pete Bernhard (guitar, banjo, harmonica, vocals), Lucia Turino (upright bass), and Cooper McBean (guitar, banjo, saw) make country folk music that sounds quite unlike anything made since about 1950 or so. Their old-school blues sound has a raw, rough edge and a light-hearted feel that makes for quite the musical experience. The group are set to release their third album, Do Wrong Right, on May 5 and will start touring in March.

For a taste of the upcoming record, download the opening track "All Hail" below and visit their MySpace to hear a few more tunes. Stay tuned for a full album review a little closer to the release date.
