Split the Country, Split the Street is Kevin Devine’s third album. It was released in 2005, being the second of two albums released on Triple Crown Records. It is the first solo record released after Kevin was no longer in Miracle of 86 (a band in which he was the lead singer).
The album features more rock oriented songs with fuller band arrangements than his previous two releases.
Kevin said of the album: “Split the Country was done after the band [Miracle of 86] broke up, like the hangover from that. It was more bi-polar: aggressive rock songs with fuller instrumentation, but also songs with violins and glockenspiel or just a guy with a guitar. Now this record feels like all of that smashed together, but all built around songs written on an acoustic guitar, and it seems to flow in a more cohesive way.”
The German record label, Defiance Records, released a double LP set with both Split the Country, Split the Street and Kevin’s previous album, Make the Clocks Move.
