The Murder Capital are to launch their debut album in style with several in-store performances across the island.
Dublin outfit The Murder Capital are set to take record stores around Ireland by storm with a series of performances.
To celebrate their latest single (;Green & Blue') reaching number one on the official 12" Vinyl Charts and the release of their much-anticipated debut album, When I Have Fears, the band are taking their sound across the country.
With 30 European and UK Tour dates announced, 2019 is set to be an explosive and formative year for the Dubs.
To see them perform live, fans must pre-order a copy of the album from each individual record store to gain access to that instore as opposed to purchasing through the band's website.
The Murder Capital will grace their presence at the following stores:
Music Zone - Crane Lane, Cork on August 15 at 7pm
Tower Records - Thomas House, Dublin on August 16 at 1pm.
Rollercoaster Records - Cleeres, Kilkenny on August 17 at 1pm.
Steamboat Records - Dolans/Kasbash, Limerick on August 17 at 7pm.
Strange Victory Records - Belfast on August 18 at 4pm.
Their LP, When I Have Fears will drop on August 16 and is available to pre-order now.
The album will be available on gatefold colour LP, black LP, as part of a limited bundle (gatefold colour LP, t-shirt, pin & journal), CD and as a digital download.
Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features both singles from the band so far - 'Feeling Fades' and 'Green & Blue', which both topped the 12" Vinyl Record Charts. The first studio recording of breakthrough track 'More Is Less' will also make an appearance.
As well as festival dates across the summer, the band will head out on tour in October and November with a headline date at The Button Factory on August 16.
The Murder Capital's live shows became so notorious that they gained steam in popularity before even releasing a single song.
By counteracting our age's pervasive urge to overshare, their mysterious vibe has built intrigue and their excellent reputation travelled through word-of-mouth rather than online streams. Within a year's time, many were clambering to see them perform live and they have already sold out shows in Dublin.
Full dates and tickets are available on their website here.
