The Devil Makes Three: Charming Punked-Up Bluegrass

The last time The Devil Makes Three played in the Soundcheck studio, we described its genre-smashing, punked-up bluegrass as “charming, danceable song.”

And while the band hasn’t lost any of that ramshackle energy and charm, the band's new album, I’m A Stranger Here, finds the music shifting in something of a new direction with lyrics going a little darker. But, you can definitely still dance to these songs, too.

Hear the band perform songs from the new record in the Soundcheck studio.

Set List:

  • "Stranger"
  • "Hallelu"
  • "Moment's Rest"

Your description makes me wonder if you've ever actually heard bluegrass music.

Hey Dakota, It worked for me after I made an account.
It's not future dated, I think, they just messed up on their dates.
Hope they don't celebrate Thanksgiving this week! haha
They only played for about 5 minutes anyways :(

I saw TDM3 three days ago in Virginia and it was the best show of my life. I'm so glad I caught this live radio show as well, because I miss them so much already. In my opinion, they're one of the greatest bands in existence.
