Kevin Devine and The Front Bottoms have just announced Devinyl Splits No. 12, the final split in the second volume of the Devinyl Split Series. For Devinyl Splits No. 12, The Front Bottoms and Kevin Devine bring to the forefront their long history as friends, tourmates and collaborators by covering classic tracks from each other's catalogues. The Front Bottoms' cover of Devine's "Just Stay," from his 2006 full-length Put Your Ghost To Rest, can be heard now below.
