Hot on the heels of a breakthrough 2019 for the band, The Murder Capital begins the UK leg of their European tour on the 13th February in Leeds. The tour follows the release of their debut album 'When I Have Fears' which landed in August last year, reaching a Top 20 chart position in the UK, and a #2 position in their native Ireland.
Several dates across Europe, including their biggest London headliner yet at The Electric Ballroom, have already sold out.
"When I Have Fears" is 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. 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.
