Murder By Dead LEAD

For the past 10 years, Murder By Death has been slaying fans (see what I did there?) with their unique blend of orchestral indie rock and floor-stomping alt-country. Having released five full-length albums and embarking on innumerable tours with the likes of Against Me!, Gaslight Anthem, Lucero, William Elliott Whitmore, and Ha Ha Tonka, the Bloomington, IN quintet shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, they’re gearing up to release their sixth full-length album and Bloodshot Record’s debut, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon, on September 25th, and they’ve recently released the very first single from the album, “I Came Around.”

“I Came Around” – Murder By Death by Bloodshot Records

Murder By Death has also put together a pretty badass Kickstarter campaign for pre-orders of the new album, and I can’t wait to find out what the eager fan who pledged $750 is going to have drummer Dagan Thogerson get tattooed on himself…I really like the suggestion of a “kangaroo drinking a martini whilst playing basketball,” so it’ll be hard to top that. Check out the campaign for yourself, and be sure to head out to see Murder By Death when they play El Rey Theatre here in Los Angeles on August 3rd. They’ll be joined by Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons, so pick up your tickets now for what’s sure to be a rowdy good time.
