Americana triumvirate The Devil Makes Three — featuring Pete Bernhard, Lucia Turino, and Cooper McBean – will be headlining Union Transfer on February 14 as part of their much-anticipated Winter 2019 Tour. Supporting the recent release of their album Chains Are Broken, which debuted in the Top 10 Bluegrass Album Charts and Paste Magazine hailed as “an album imbued with solid hooks, catchy choruses and irresistible refrains,” this promises to be one show music lovers won’t want to miss.
The Chains Are Broken is the first record of original songs since 2013’s I’m a Stranger Here, which was their first appearance on the Billboard Top 200.
The Devil Makes Three’s journey could be deemed worthy of a novel. Their self-titled 2002 debut album yielded the classic “Old Number Seven,” “Graveyard,” “The Plank,” and more as they organically attracted a diehard following through constant touring. Longjohns, Boots and a Belt arrived in 2003, followed by 2009’s Do Wrong Write.
2013’s I’m a Stranger Here marked their first appearance on the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Redemption & Ruin heralded the group’s second #1 bow on the Billboard Top Bluegrass Albums Chart, and fourth consecutive top-five debut on the respective chart. The latter garnered widespread acclaim from the likes of Entertainment Weekly, American Songwriter, The Boston Globe and more. Over the years, they’ve cast an unbreakable spell on audiences everywhere from Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Hangout Fest and Shaky Knees.
