MURDER CAPITAL - GIGIS RECOVERY[INDIES EXCLUSIVE PINK VINYL]
Following The Murder Capitals return at the end of July with their first new material since 2019, Only Good Things, today they share the news of their much-anticipated second album Gigis Recovery set for release on January 20th via Human Season.
Gigi's Recovery will be available on CD, standard black LP and a pink LP exclusive to Independent Record Stores.
While the material on When I Have Fears captured the vital beginnings of the group, the 12 songs of Gigis Recovery push the band into ever braver sonic territories, oceans apart from previous peers. Ambition is put right at the front and center, with the inventive, expansive guitar work of Cathal Roper and Damien Tuit paired to a precise and intelligent rhythmic unit in bassist Gabriel Paschal Blake and drummer Diarmuid Brennan. Electronic elements are noticeably more prominent across the record, with industrial influences explored in greater detail than ever before, McGoverns bold melodies acting as a reassuring anchor so we never get totally swept away into the bands new found soundscape.
-Only Good Things has seen plays from Radio X, Radio 1 and 6 Music.
-North American, UK & EU Tour in 2023.
-Over 22k tickets sold in the year before the pandemic.
-Opened for Pearl Jam in Hyde Park, Foals and Bloc Party this summer along with summer festivals.
-Upcoming festival performances include All Together Now, Pukkelpop, Lowlands Fest, and more.
-Deeply passionate about causes such as social justice, socioeconomic inequities, especially in their native Ireland, and mental health among young people.
-The Murder Capital really are powerful, because of the bond they inspire among their fans - The Guardian
-It's early to say, and it's bold for sure, but there's a fair few legendary bands out there that were never quite as good as The Murder Capital are right now. - DIY
