Montreal based, blues-infused rock band The Damn Truth are re-writing the rules of the rock music industry with their sophomore LP, Devilish Folk. With the combination of front woman Lee-La Baum‘s scorching vocals, paired with brilliantly orchestrated instrumentals, it’s no wonder that their first radio single, “Heart Is Cold,” dominated national radio and Lee-La was tapped as the voice of the new YSL BEAUTY perfume MON PARIS, singing U2‘s “Love Is Blindness.”

Even before one note was written for Devilish Folk I knew what this album should be about. ROCK AND ROLL changed my life and made me question everything. The way Lee-la and I feel about the world we are a part of is so intense, kind of like a boiling pot that has to erupt one way or another.
Some thoughts and feelings can only be told through music, and for us the only way to tell our story is through a loud, proud and rebellious Rock and Roll.

Early Praise for The Damn Truth:

There’s a new rock n’ roll smell powerfully breezing through the Montreal airwaves and it’s not just the typical stale booze, body odour, and butt stinkin’ kind. The Damn Truth’s funk is so strong that even Yves Saint Laurent wants to work with these badasses. Although he isn’t salvaging the sweat from drummer Dave Traina’s undies to mix the perfect blend of lavender and hot, sick ass, according to Mr. Montreal Gazette, Yves finds Damn Truth frontwoman Lee-la Baum’s raw and raspy voice so sexy that he wants it singing U2’s “Love Is Blindness” on one of his advertisements. How’s that for recognition? Well, they deserve it.Keenan KerrBucket List

The band’s newest, full-length album, “Devilish Folk”, comes out this Friday, July 8, on Fineline Records / Warner Music Canada. You’ll be able to grab it in stores and online (via Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and Deezer), but the album is available for pre-order on iTunes right now, including four singles immediately available for instant download at the time of purchase: “Heart Is Cold”, the first single from the album; “Broken Blues”, which was released on June 10; “White Lies”, released on June 24; and “Get With You”,which you may have heard on rock radio last fall, with its release as a 7-inch vinyl single. As is their modus operandi, “Devilish Folk” sees the band – Lee-la Baum (vocals/guitar), Tom Shemer (guitars), and Dave Traina (drums) – reassert their ethos of grit and cement their place in the evolution of rock’n’roll.
