Dublin’s The Murder Capital release the first of a series of live videos from “When I Have Fears” with a passionate performance of “Green & Blue”.

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.

Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features all three singles from the band so far, “Feeling Fades”, “Green & Blue” & “Don’t Cling To Life”, as well as the first studio recording of breakthrough track “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.
