The Damn Truth is a Montreal real rock’n’roll band and Devilish Folk, their second album, arrives with a ready-made pedigree of alternative and classic rock credentials.

It was produced by Jean Massicotte, whose credits include Patrick Watson, Lhasa, Bran Van 3000, Pierre Lapointe and others. Grammy-award winner Tchad Blake (Black Keys, Pearl Jam, Arctic Monkeys, Peter Gabriel, etc) mixed 8 of the 12 tracks, including the single, Heart Is Cold. All this power was expertly brought to the fore via the mastering of John Davis, responsible for the recent Led Zeppelin re-issues in addition to work with U2, Lana del Ray, Stone Roses, Florence & The Machine, and others.

Cover art is by noted international street artist Enzo Sarto who will unleash his own independent street art campaign in Boston, Montreal, Paris, Berlin, and Tel Aviv.

The Damn Truth are Lee-la Baum (vocals/guitar), Tom Shemer (guitars), and Dave Traina (drums). There are echoes of Sabbath, Zeppelin, Janis, Fleetwood Mac; all of it uniquely channelled through Lee-la Baum’s powerful vocals; creating a blues-based, hard rock that’s distinguished them and made them something of a musical anomaly. “I think some of the older fans are drawn to the band because we remind them of what rock’n’roll used to be like in its heyday,” says Tom. “When it was still a bit dangerous.”
