The lushly cinematic track can now be streamed and downloaded on their website.

Having wrapped up their summer headlining tour in late August, Murder By Death will next head out on the road in support of Say Anything in October. The band will first play a hometown record release show in Bloomington, IN at the Bluebird Nightclub on September 27th, and then join Say Anything in Anaheim, CA at the House Of Blues on October 4th. The tour will then wrap up on October 28th at Korova in San Antonio, TX. A current itinerary is below.

Known for their uniquely brooding sound that frequently conjures desolate imagery, on Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon Murder By Death capture a familiar tone but also explore new territory, adding a further refined sophistication and even richer, full-bodied sound. The varied album - produced by John Congleton (Explosions In The Sky, St. Vincent, Black Mountain) - ranges musically from the spooky and spare opener "My Hill", to the rough, rousing sing-along "Hard World", to the booming, aching waltz of "Ghost Fields." Songs like "Lost River" start hushed before rising to a rich crescendo, while "No Oath, No Spell" maintains a dramatic, bluesy swing, and first single "I Came Around" rumbles and rollicks with a hard-charging, barroom flair. Singer Adam Turla's cavernous baritone tells shadowy small-town stories throughout, the songs' oftentimes-upbeat veneer belying a sordid undercurrent.

Murder By Death is: Adam Turla (vocals, guitar), Matt Armstrong (bass), Sarah Balliet (cello), Scott Brackett (backing vocals, piano, trumpet, accordion, among others), and Dagan Thogerson (drums). The band recently became the third highest-funded music project in Kickstarter's history, having successfully raised $187,048 to fund the deluxe vinyl edition production of Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon.
