It's been a little over a year since we kicked off our six-part Devinyl Splits project with Kevin Devine, and we're very proud to find ourselves now wrapping up what we're calling "Volume 1" of this series. On this page, you can purchase Devinyl Splits No. 6: Jesse Lacey x Kevin Devine, along with some other stuff. It will be released on March 25 and 7"s will begin shipping a bit before that date.
On Devinyl Splits No. 6, Jesse and Kevin decided to both cover a band that has held huge influence in each of their personal and professional lives. Jesse takes on R.E.M.'s "Bad Day," while Kevin performs his rendition of "Imitation of Life." R.E.M.'s influence on these two songwriters has been massive, as each write about in the liner notes of this 7".
The 7" is available on its own, on black vinyl, limited to 2,000 copies; we have copies of the other installations of the split series as well. There are also Devinyl Splits T-shirts (photo to your left) and screen-printed 11" x 17" posters (also photo to your left) that were left over from the weekend of shows that Kevin and friends played, celebrating the Devinyl Splits series as a whole.
Zack and I want to thank everyone who bought a subscription to this series, or any single 7" from it. We also want to thank to Kevin for trusting us with managing this huge project and a whole year's worth of his music. It'll be remembered one of the coolest things we ever did with this record label.
This 7" is not eligible for discounts.
Each 7" also had a Clear with Colored Splatter variant limited to 100 units, which was exclusive to the subscribers who signed up for the entire series when it first launched. The color splatter for each 7" was the same as the larger variant listed below.
