“Incomparable melancholy elegies full of transcendence and longing, string opulence and graceful pedal-steel embellishments” – Rolling Stone

Devil’s Road (Deluxe Edition)
Chris Eckman and Carla Torgerson formed The Walkabouts in Seattle in 1984. In 1989 they released their sub-pop debut and found themselves the only non-grunge band alongside Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney. Ironically, The Walkabouts‘ sound survived the grunge hype of the ’90s to become one of the most important and enduring music genres of the following decades. In 1992 The Walkabouts and Sub Pop split up, but the band merged with Sub Pop Europe, represented by Glitterhouse Records in Beverungen. Following the release of the albums Devil’s Road (1996) and Nighttown (1997) on Virgin Records, The Walkabouts returned to Glitterhouse and have remained so to this day.
