THE MURDER CAPITAL
_ Main Venue _
“Murder Capital are one of those most oddly entertaining prospects – a punk band that can truly instill can’t-look-away levels of captivation.” – NME
EASTBOUND proudly presents Dublin-based five-piece The Murder Capital live at Whelan’s, 11th May 2019.
Based on the caustic strength of one live recording of “More Is Less”, which went viral on YouTube (watch), and feverish word of mouth from those who have been lucky enough to attend these early gigs, The Murder Capital have built a formidable reputation. In just over a year, they have played alongside Slaves, Shame and fellow countrymen Fontaines DC. They have been included in The Guardian’s Ones to Watch 2019 and included in NME’s 100 Essential New Artists for 2019 – with The Irish Times calling them out as Ireland’s best new rock band.
With “Feeling Fades” the band fulfil their early promise – delivering a brooding, propulsive slice of post-punk recorded with prolific producer Flood (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Foals). In one of their rare interviews so far, the band have stated they are driven by the genuine desire to affect cultural change, and when frontman James McGovern repeats the lyric “the now elapsed ‘round you and me, and it kept us all together” on this, their debut single, you start to believe that they’re capable of achieving just that.
