I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Murder By Death will release their seventh full-length album Big Dark Love on February 3rd, 2015. Today, Entertainment Weekly/EW.com is premiering “Strange Eyes,” the first new song from the band’s second release with Chicago label Bloodshot Records.  


Big Dark Love is now available for pre-order on CD and LP via Bloodshot’s website or digitally via iTunes, in which purchasing parties will receive an instant MP3 download of the lead single, “Strange Eyes.”

Big Dark Love reflects a different, more complex side of the band. As hinted in the title, the 10 songs circle a central theme of love, only in this case, the oft-traveled topic is examined through a non-traditional kaleidoscope: the love of a parent for their child, the struggle between unconditional love and morality, loving to excess. There can sometimes be a dusky patina of despair overlaying glints of hope. For a band that has built its formidable, near 15-year career around a consideration to tension, release, bombast, ecstasy, and highest-highs vs. lowest-lows, it is something to say that this is Murder By Death’s most dynamic release to date. Sonically here, their signature sound – rootsy indie rock, cinematic gothic ballads, and rousing pub rock shout-alongs – mixes with enlivening new stylistic elements - touches of pop, synth-y electronics, and psych rock - only hinted at on previous albums.

In support of the new album, Murder By Death will embark on a U.S. tour in late January, the first time fans will be able to hear new material in full. The lengthy stretch of dates begins on the West Coast in Seattle on January 30, continues across the continental U.S. to the East Coast in February, and eventually doubles back and wraps up in Bloomington, IN in mid-March. The band will also tour through the Midwest in late May. All tour dates can be found listed below, or on the band’s tour page.
