Happy birthday to Deven Ivy, the first member of local teen punk band Residual Kid to hit 18. The band celebrated, by releasing a new video to the song “Chill” off their latest EP “Salsa” that came out in April.
Ivy, who sings and plays guitar, is the oldest member of the trio that signed to Sire Records in 2014. He graduated from Austin High School last year. His band mates, 16-year-old bassist Max Redman and 17-year-old drummer Ben Redman, are currently sophomore and junior respectively. But the Redman brothers work with a private tutor so they can tour and stay focused on school.
The band is currently on tour in the Western U.S.
