After all this time Murder City Devils bless us with more of their amazing music. Every Day I Rise b/w Ball Busting in the Peanut Gallery.

My friend Ryan was definitely the person who introduced me to this band. It was one of those things where you are talking about metal or hardcore for an hour and you look at the other person and suggest some band that doesn’t sound even remotely like what you were talking about. That’s what happened. He looked at me and asked if I ever heard Murder City Devils, I hadn’t and he played their second album for me. I couldn’t help but to be kind of struck by the band as a concept. In my head the only thing I could compare them to was Danzig and that was based purely on the fact that the record kind of made me fell the same way a Danzig record felt. Anyway, the band made a lasting impression on me as that was easily 10 years ago.

The band split in 2003 and until now have not recorded. The songs pick up where their last record ended but there is this amazing body of sound that feels like something new too. The B side of the record kind of scares me with its driving yet swirling sound. What an amazing band. It’s almost comical that a band could be so simple yet so powerful.

First pressing details:
100 Pink / White Marble Vinyl
300 Solid White Vinyl
1600 Solid Black Vinyl

    I was hoping for something with a little bit more bombast but I do really like these two new songs.
    Now if they would only come back and play Colorado.

    Also are both of these songs about William S Bouroughs?

    It’s like a warm bath.
