About Murder By Death

 
The band came into being back in 2000. It was formed by Adam Turla, the lead guitarist who put together Alexander Schrodt as the percussionist, Sarah Balliet as the cellist, Matt Armstrong as the bassist as Vincent Edwards as the keyboardist. One of the earliest shows they played was in “The Red Herring”, a café of “Channing-Murray Foundation”. They played alongside the drummer of the band “American Football”, Steve Lamos for one of his solo projects. When they finished performing at the show, executives from Lamos’s record label, “TEAM AV”, helped Murder by Death out in booking more shows. He provided his guidance to Turla, who then led his band mates to even more performing even more live shows and gigs than they were used to. It was around this time that the group met Geoff Rickly, the lead vocalist for a band called Thursday. They met when both the bands were performing at the same venue at a local gig in Bloomington. Murder by Death was then called “Little Joe Gould”. Rickly then introduced them to the president to the “Eyeball Records”, Alex Saaveda. He was also interested in working with the band. 
 
But the end of the year, the band had released an EP by the same name as the band. Their song, “I’m Afraid of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” was listed as part of the “Foreign Nationals” compilations that TEAM AV put together. After their first EP, the group decided to start being called “Murder by Death” instead. The group felt that this new name represented who they are and what their sound is about better. They still perform songs from their first EP even today, as will be apparent when you witness them in their upcoming concert.
 
Once their first EP was out, the band went on a tour of the United States. They booked 11 dates and went all the way from Louisiana to California. As a new band, since they were playing smaller venues and had to pay for their own travel expenses. Murder by Death travelled and shared the stage with the band from Chicago, “Volta Do Mar”. During their live performances, the band would also play new tracks from the material they were writing at the time. Some of those songs would end up on their subsequent albums. They worked with former guitar player for the music group Re:Rec, Tom Isler. They recorded many new songs in Chicago with various musicians who were also signed under the TEAM AV label. The label was also responsible for arranging their tour and providing sound engineering. Eventually, the band managed to put out their first album through a proper recording company, Eyeball. This new record was called “Like the Exorcist But More Like Break Dancing”. To promote the album, the band toured consistently, joining and opening for bands like Interpole and Cursive. The band then continued to collaborate with other artists, providing guest vocals or instrumentals on various tracks. This includes the songs with the likes of  “Canyon Inn, Room 16”, and the infamous song, “Knife Goes In, Guts Come Out”, and “We Watch a Lot of Movies” for the band “Volta Do Mar”. During this time, they worked with the producer D. James Goodwin who would go on to produce their record “Who Will Survive and What Will Be Left of Them” as well. During their extensive touring years, the band sold hundreds of thousands of Murder by Death tickets. The band is also known for releasing a tribute single in honor of Matt Davis from the group Ten Grand; someone who was a friend to Murder by Death and had passed away that year.
 
The band’s latest album is called “Good Morning, Magpie”. For their new tour, Scott Brackett from Okkervil River has also joined the band. So get Murder by Death tickets to see the band in concert now!
