Devinyl Splits No. 8 is the second split in Devinyl Splits, Vol. 2. It features David Bazan on Side A and Kevin Devine on Side B. The split will be released on July 27, 2018, with digital downloads being delivered to your inbox before the release date. The 7"s will ship close to the release date.
Both artists chose songs by the band Now, Now to cover on this split. David Bazan covers "Thread," the titular-ish track from Now, Now's 2012 album Threads. Bazan is the songwriter behind the renowned indie rock band Pedro The Lion, which released several classic albums of the genre throughout the 1990s and 2000s. He's been releasing albums under his own name since 2009.
Kevin Devine covers "Prehistoric," also from Now, Now's Threads.
Devinyl Splits, Vol. 2 is a year-long split series featuring Kevin Devine and a variety of partners. One split will be released every other month. The preceding entry in Devinyl Splits, Vol. 2 was Devinyl Splits No. 7, which features Craig Finn & The Uptown Controllers alongside Kevin Devine. It's available here. Additionally, due to the delay in releasing this split with Devine and Bazan, we released Devinyl Splits: Unplanned Service Changes, a digital-only split featuring the band Worriers alongside Devine. That's available here.
