MurderByDeathis a Louisville, KY quintet with a wry, ominous name. But behind the geography and moniker is a band of meticulous and literary songwriters matchedbya specific brand of brooding, anthem-riding balladry and orchestral indie rock.
MurderByDeath's path began in the early 2000s as most Midwestern college-town groups do,byplaying to small crowds at ratty venues and frenzied house parties. While many of their formative-year scene-mates failed to make it much further than campustown's borders,MurderByDeathtranslated their anonymous beginnings into a 15+ year career founded on a bedrock of five full-length albums, tireless D.I.Y. touring and performing ethics, and, most importantly, a dedicated, cult-like fanbase.
