THE MURDER CAPITAL share new live video for ‘Don’t Cling To Life’

The Murder Capital

Today, Dublin’s The Murder Capital have shared a new live video for their BBC 6 Music B-listed single “Don’t Cling To Life.” The video follows the release of their debut album “When I Have Fears” last Friday, which is currently heading for a top 10 chart position in the UK, and a no.1 position in their native Ireland. Watch the video below.

The video is part of a series of four live videos, which started with ‘Green & Blue’, which you can also 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 which are taking place this week:

Wed 21st Aug – LEEDS
Crash (afternoon) – signing

Thurs 22nd Aug – LONDON
Rough Trade East (afternoon show) – performance + signing

Thurs 22nd Aug – BRIGHTON
Resident Music (evening) – performance + signing

You can see a map of all of the in-store locations HERE

The signings and in-stores are in support of their debut album, “When I Have Fears”, which was released on August 16th through Human Season Records.

The album 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.

As well as festival dates across the summer, the band will head out on two headline tours – in October / November.
