Devil's Brigade are more than a side project. In fact, they're headed at velocity toward something more like a supergroup—it’s Rancid (and Operation Ivy!) bassist Matt Freeman with Hunns (and way more) guitarist Rob Milucky and X’s DJ Bonebrake. And their particular breed of punky rock ‘n’ roll is even rawer then you’d expect, thanks to Freeman’s roar-from-the-gutter vocals and extremely percussive handling of the stand-up bass. On paper, they’ve only had a few releases so far, mostly clustered around a 2010 full-length on Rancid-y label Hellcat. But when they’re up there on stage in a red-lit room at full volume, you’ll really feel the history behind them catch fire. Like the t-shirt promises: Punk Rock Since 1966.
