Murder By Death welcomes Good Morning, Magpie with tour

on March 04, 2010, 1:30pm

Using elements of punk, alt-county and classic Americana, Murder By Death has created a solid resume of creepy party music with plenty of cello. Though dark, they drift more towards a True Blood-sound than a Twilight-sound, always seeming like good country boys at heart. They even used a location in the Great Smokey Mountains to record their fifth full-length, Good Morning, Magpie. But these Bloomington, Indiana natives have set their aim beyond cult and local followings, and will launch a giant tour to support Magpie‘s April 6th release.

The band, which has played support for the likes of Lucero and The Gaslight Anthem, is scheduled to support the release by crossing the country for six weeks. Openers will include Ha Ha Tonka and Linfinity. Prior to the trek, Murder By Death will make its presence known at this month’s South By Southwest. They are currently scheduled to play a two shows on March 19th, including one with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club!
