KEXP Premiere: Midnight Faces - Devil's Money

The career of Midnight Faces frontman Matthew Doty feels like scrolling through the KEXP Blog. He began making music as a teenager with childhood friend Jonny Pierce of The Drums (who was recently in town and who we interviewed). And as a young adult, he co-founded the band Saxon Shore with Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty, whose in-studio videos we just launched). On his own as Midnight Faces, he's made a presence here before, too, with Song of the Day "Blue Haze" followed by a stop on the Midday Show late last year in support of their self-released LP, Heavenly Bodies.

Today, the history continues as KEXP presents the premiere of the new track "Devils Money" on The Morning Show with John Richards. The song will be released this Friday, July 28th via Dangerbird Records' monthly singles club MICRODOSE. They’re celebrating the launch of the single that night with a performance from Midnight Faces at Dangerbird’s HQ in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. Drop by for what the label is calling "a good old fashioned keg party for the artist, their community, and the neighborhood as a whole. Keep it simple. Make it fun. Do it again!”
