The Dublin band's debut album, When I Have Fears, is out on August 16.
The Murder Capital have shared a brand new track 'Don't Cling To Life' - the third single from their highly anticipated debut album When I Have Fears. A fan favourite during the Dublin four-piece's live shows, 'Don't Cling To Life' has been described as "an anthemic highlight from their upcoming debut album."
The band have seen both of their previous releases, 'Feeling Fades' and 'Green & Blue' top the vinyl charts already this year. Last week, they announced a series of exclusive in-store performances across Ireland and the UK in August, including:
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.
When I Have Fears 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 - available to pre-order now.
Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features all three singles from the band so far, 'Feeling Fades', 'Green & Blue' & 'Don't Cling To Life', as well as the first studio recording of breakthrough track 'More Is Less'.
