Their cover of 'Man of Constant Sorrow' has received a lot of radio airplay and has turned into a fan favorite at the band's live shows. Opening for Mark Tremonti's solo-project in New York City, we were able to grab a few minutes with lead singer John Allen.

Charm City Devils Frontman Discusses New Album
If you weren’t familiar with the folk tune ‘Man of Constant Sorrow’ before seeing the movie ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?,’ released in 2000 directed by the Coen Brothers starring George Clooney, then you probably left the movie theater with the catchy song permanently stored in your memory banks. However, the tune was around long before the movie, written in 1913 by folk singer Dick Burnett and re-recorded by various different artists throughout the years.
