Doc Yates and the Kings Evil is a five-man band that plays soul country! 

The debut album "Sweat It Out!" will be released this summer. The songs were recorded using the acoustics of an old wooden sauna to get some warm acoustic undertones. It shares the energy and sound of the working man. Much of the work on this album was done during very late nights, after work, after opening two new clinics, after renovations, after feeding pigs and after putting kids to bed. All of this put together is what led to the album title of "Sweat It Out!", because that is exactly what had to occur to bring this production to life.
