Murder By Death hits the road for a lengthy US tour

on August 08, 2010, 11:30am

Earlier this year, Murder By Death put on a pretty epic tour throughout the States in support of their latest effort, Good Morning, Magpie. Apparently, however, that wasn’t enough for the four cello-obsessed whiskey fanatics. Which is why Murder By Death is hitting the road yet again, and this time they’re even going to Canada for a few days!

Starting this week, the Indiana natives will embark on a two-week tour alongside Philadelphia rockers MewithoutYou, only to get right back on the road in early September for their own headlining tour. Hitting everywhere from New York, NY to Toledo, OH, Murder By Death plans on making their shows accessible to as many fans as possible.

“Being from a small town, we know that sometimes bands skip over the little cities in favor of bigger shows and more dough,” said frontman Adam Turla. “We wanted to play a few places we’ve never been to, and clubs we haven’t played in years. Let’s pack these rooms out, get drunk, and let our voices get hoarse from singing together. We will be joined every night on this tour by a new friend/cohort in music Scott Brackett (of Okkervil River) on piano, trumpet, accordion, percussion, and backup vocals.” What more could you ask for?

Plus, if that weren’t enough, Murder By Death will also be hosting a special event at Louisville’s Ear X-tacy on August 8th, where the band will not only perform a special in-store set but have also arranged to meet a few of their fans as well. What sweethearts, eh? Look below for a full list of dates for both this month (w/ MewithoutYou) and their lengthier fall tour alongside Samantha Crain and Ninja Gun.
