Our resident theatrical roots rockers Murder By Death will release their new album (their third on Bloodshot) The Other Shore on August 24th, and BrooklynVegan is streaming the haunting and sing-along-worthy new song "True Dark" right now! Go listen and then pre-order the album on digital, CD, or 200-gram Mars red vinyl LP!
The album is a space-western about a ravaged Earth, its fleeing populace, and a relationship in jeopardy. What else need we say?
As trailblazers of the early 2000s indie-Americana style, the Louisville, KY-based quintet finds a way of taking tried & true rock-and-roll and knocking it slightly off axis, into tottering revolutions of something eerie, emotional, immediate, lush, and uniquely theirs.
MBD is ready for liftoff and will embark on a big U.S. tour this year to celebrate the new album. All dates can be found here.
