With stints in Operation Ivy, Rancid, Dance Hall Crashers and Social Distortion among his credits, bassist Matt Freeman must qualify for some kind of punk-rock bingo. (See Dave Goods About Damn Time.) Though hes still with Rancid, hes currently touring with Devils Brigade. The band formed back in 2000, but they didnt release a proper full-length until late last summer. So what makes Devils Brigade different from Rancid? Much more of a psychobilly bent, as made clear by song titles such as Vampire Girl and Half Way to Hell.
