Drunken Prayer returns to Asheville with The Devil & The Blues

Morgan Geer, leader and core member of folk-rock-noir outfit Drunken Prayer, to Asheville on Friday, July 10, for a pre-album release show at The Mothlight. New effort The Devil & the Blues officially drops in August; the local show promises not to be just a homecoming but a reunion of members from alt-country band (and Drunken Prayer predecessor) The Unholy Trio.

Earlier this year, Xpress reported on rumors that Morgan Geer (of The Merle, for old-school Ashevilleans; Drunken Prayer, for newer transplants) was moving back to Asheville after nearly a decade living and writing in Portland. Judging from the number of local appearances Drunken Prayer has made since releasing its latest effort at The LAB last February, those rumors were true.
