Los Angeles, CA – A preacher’s mouth and a rock ‘n’ roll heart – sometimesthat’s all it takes to make you move.

What makes the Devils rise above is that they understand rock ‘n’ roll isabout much more than a simple formula – it’s a lifestyle you naturally knowor don’t. The music, the lyrics, the look, and the vibe all have to be insync. You either have it or you don’t, and the Devils have a combination sofew other bands in the genre possess – a gripping sound, a distinct message,a touch of the mysterious, and the know-how to give the fans exactly whatthey want.
After three full-length records and five years of relentless touring, theMurder City Devils called it quits on Halloween, 2001 at Seattle’s Showbox.Yet the same force that powered their manic tour schedule never quitesubsided, and the band celebrated its ten-year anniversary by playing at the2006 Capitol Hill Block Party and in 2007 at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin,TX.
