Murder City Devils in Philly in February (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Seattle garage punks Murder City Devils have been reunited for quite a few years now, and today (8/5) they put out their new album, The White Ghost Has Blood on Its Hands Again, their first release of new original music since 2001's Thelema EP on Sub Pop. The band's trademark organ, courtesy of former member Leslie Hardy, only shows up on one song, but singer Spencer Moody's growled vocals are still vicious as ever. You can stream the album in full at the band's webstore, where it can also be purchased in vinyl and digital formats. Three tracks can be streamed below.
The band also have upcoming tour dates including Riot Fest Chicago, Fun Fun Fun Fest and FYF Fest, but unfortunately none in NYC at the moment. All dates are listed, with those streams and the lyric sheet for the album, below...
Murder City Devils - "Cruelty Abounds"
Murder City Devils - "I Don't Wanna Work For Scum Anymore"
Murder City Devils - "Pale Disguise"
