Kevin Devine On His New Album “Nothing’s Real, So Nothing’s Wrong,” Career Plans, Creativity, His New York Roots, TV & More

Kevin Devine’s musical career began in the early 2000s with the band Miracle Of 86. From there he struck out on his own, performing solo and with his ever-evolving backing collective, The Goddamn Band, eventually forming Bad Books with Manchester Orchestra. In 2015, Devine started his Devinyl Splits 7″ series, collaborating with The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws (Nada Surf), David Bazan, The Front Bottoms, and Meredith Graves. Devine has also served as a touring member of several bands, and performed alongside Frightened Rabbit, John K. Samson and Julien Baker.

March 25, 2022 brings a new studio album from Kevin Devine, Nothing’s Real, So Nothing’s Wrong, as due out via Triple Crown Records. The album’s lead single “Albatross” served as a powerful introduction to the new record, which Devine has described as “a hard reboot, a fragmented emptying-out for us strugglers whose life experience invalidates cookie-cutter solutions or miracle cures or 21st century coping mechanisms.” In support of the album, Devine is kicking off a tour on March 24, 2022 with an in-store appearance at Long Island, New York’s Looney Tunes, as followed by a proper launch on April 6, 2022 at Baltimore, Maryland’s Ottobar. Kayleigh Goldsworthy, Pronoun and Kississippi will be supporting Devine on tour, which is set to wrap in Atlanta, Georgia on May 20th.

On March 2, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Kevin Devine via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond Nothing’s Real, So Nothing’s Wrong, we discussed his creative process, his New York roots, future projects and TV recommendations. More on Devine can be found here, here and here.
