Ahead of the release of their debut album this Friday, Dublin's The Murder Capital have shared a new recording entitled 'More Is Less', the live version of which went viral and forged the band's breakthrough last year.
LISTEN HERE OR STREAM BELOW.
The release follows the recent live session for Steve Lamacq on 6 Music, where they have been B-listed for latest release "Don't Cling To Life", that you can listen to again HERE
The band have also recently released the first in a series of four live videos, starting with 'Green & Blue', which you can watch HERE
The Murder Capital have seen previous single releases - "Feeling Fades" and the 12" of the aforementioned "Green & Blue" - top the vinyl charts already this year, and last month announced a series of strictly limited in-stores and intimate performances for later this week. You can see a map of all of the in-store locations HERE. The signings and in-stores are in support of their much-anticipated debut album, "When I Have Fears", set for release on August 16th through Human Season Records.
The album will be available on gatefold colour LP, black LP, as part of a limited bundle (gatefold colour LP, t-shirt, pin & journal), CD and as a digital download. You can pre-order HERE
Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features all four singles from the band so far, "Feeling Fades", "Green & Blue" & "Don't Cling To Life" and 'More Is Less'
An exercise in both darkness and light, “When I Have Fears” only serves to highlight the early ambition in the band's sound. From the post-rock build and breakdowns of the two-part "Slowdance", to the tender, bruised confessional of "On Twisted Ground" and industrial pulse of closer "Love, Love, Love", there's a consistent intensity throughout that marks out The Murder Capital as a band arriving fully formed on their debut album.
As well as festival dates across the summer, the band will head out on two headline tours - once in July and again in October / November.
