Fredericton blues rockers The Crossroad Devils enlist Saint John recording engineer Corey Bonnevie for latest EP, ‘Snacks’.
The Crossroad Devils are one of the latest bands to enlist the talents of Saint John engineer/producer Corey Bonnevie. Over the past few years, Bonnevie has recorded an impressive list of artists from all over the province including Tortue, Kylie Fox, Motherhood, Bad People as well as his own group, Little You, Little Me.
“Corey was amazing to work with,” said Crossroad Devils’ Richie Young. “He let us have full control over our sound. It was amazing.”
‘Snacks’ is the first new music to surface from The Crossroad Devils in just over a year and Young believes the recording captures the band’s energy and reflects the evolution the band has experienced over the past year of performing.
“Our previous recordings were done by the band,” he said. “They were not a good representation of The Crossroad Devils’ current sound. This was the first time we actually went into a studio to record and to capture what we sound like live.”
‘Snacks’ is a four-track document of a group in constant evolution. Building on the band’s established blues-rock foundation, this new EP finds The Crossroad Devils struggling to contain their collective energy while experimenting with elements of psych and roots rock. Check it out below.
The EP is available for digital download via the band’s Bandcamp page.
