BRIAN’s 2024 tour will come on the heels of his 2023 “ROCKABILLY RIOT” tour which coincided with the release of THE DEVIL ALWAYS COLLECTS. SETZER’s guitar work on the album is virtuosic and his vocals deliver the clever storylines of catchy songs like “The Devil Always Collects,” “Girl On The Billboard,” and “Rock Boys Rock.” Add in non-stop freight train rhythms, and you have an album—produced by BRIAN SETZER and Julian Raymond and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge—that stands with SETZER‘s best. Listen to the album HERE.

Here’s some critical feedback on the album:

“Looking for something to spice up your summer road trip playlist? Look no further than the lead single from rockabilly guitar titan Brian Setzer’s forthcoming LP, The Devil Always Collects. It’s pure roadside bar sleaze in the best way – with strutting Chuck Berry-by-way-of-the-gutter riffs, and even a Route 66 namecheck. You’ll want to put the pedal to the metal with this coming through your speakers.”
—Jackson Maxwell, GUITARWORLD.COM, 7/28/23 on “Girl On The Billboard”

“While impossible to stylistically separate The Devil Always Collects from Setzer’s previous output (and why would you?), it’s more polished, immediate, and even modern sounding with no compromise to the music. In other words, this is prime, deeply inspired Setzer.”
—Thom Jurek, ALLMUSIC.COM, 9/15/2023

“…arguably, one of his best [albums]. You can’t deny his incendiary guitar work, smooth vocals and artful blend of rockabilly, swing and retro cool. And jazzy acrobatic numbers like ‘What’ll it Be Baby Doll’ and Black Leather Jacket”’ are well crafted and seal the deal.”
—Eric Harabadian, MUSIC CONNECTION, 10/17/2023

“On his latest release, The Devil Always Collects Setzer sounds like a 21st-century Gene Vincent – Eddie Cochran hybrid with guitar chops speeding down the highway at 100 miles an hour while singing about the two main themes of rockabilly music – girls and good times with a playful sense of defiance and rebellion. His guitar playing sizzles and pops throughout with breathtaking dives and runs that boggle the mind…Brian Setzer is a keeper of the flame of the music that we all know and love and for that, we should all be grateful.”
—John Michael Antonio, AMERICANA HIGHWAYS, 9/18/2023

“Rock’n’Roll legend Brian Setzer once again proves he always delivers on his new album, The Devil Always Collects. From Blues to Jazz to Rock’n’Roll, The Devil Always Collects spotlights Setzer’s ability to create highly energetic, highly danceable Rock’n’Roll.”
—Brian Rock, THE ALTERNATE ROOT, 9/23/2023

“Although he’s always looked to the past for inspiration, Brian Setzer’s music never seems dated. Playing his hunches has given him the freedom to follow his muse. The Devil Always Collects doesn’t disappoint.”
—Eleni P. Austin, COACHELLA VALLEY WEEKLY, 11/9/2023

Iconic guitarist, songwriter, vocalist and 3-time Grammy award-winner BRIAN SETZER has achieved one career milestone after another. He’s sold millions of albums and is a “Musician’s Musician” credited with continually taking chances with innovative and daring musical styles. Setzer is widely credited for taking two forgotten genres, rockabilly and swing, adding his own blend of gunpowder and rockin’ style, and completely reinventing and single-handedly resurrecting them in the process. Along the way, he has scored chart-topping hits, sold 13 million records and received the Orville H. Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award throughout his decorated career as founder/leader of the Stray Cats, his 19-piece Brian Setzer Orchestra, and as a solo artist. He is consistently cited as one of the world’s greatest living guitarists, and has a best-selling, extensive line of elite Gretsch signature model guitars bearing his name. SETZER is also, fittingly, in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. On the live front, Setzer has headlined venues and festivals worldwide, including a 1983 headlining slot on the iconic US Festival in California, The Playboy Jazz Festival, a three-night, sold-out headlining run at the Hollywood Bowl with the 98-piece Philharmonic Orchestra, Woodstock ’99, and performing in front of more than 150,000 people as headliner of the Montreal Jazz Festival.  His reach also includes films and TV, where his roles include portraying rockabilly pioneer Eddie Cochran in the 1987 film, La Bamba,  Fox’s “Beverly Hills 90210,” among many others, and he is one of the few musicians to be animated in an episode of “The Simpsons” in 2002. That same year, SETZER was personally requested to induct Chet Atkins into the 17th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. SETZER had the honor of being invited in 2006 to perform at the White House for the President of the United States. Also in 2006, he was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame with the Stray Cats. In 2014, SETZER received the distinct honor of being asked by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. to donate a replica of his original 1959 Gretsch 6120 “Stray Cat” guitar, joining an elite collection of iconic treasures at the museum.
