Goth country outfit Murder By Death announce fall tour

In 1976, director Robert Moore made and released a film called “Murder By Death.”

The film was a mystery comedy, which is best described as a movie of the board game “Clue,” wasn’t much of a hit when it was initially released, but, it has since become a cult classic that many holds to a great standard.

One of those folks was Adam Turla, who formed a band out of Bloomington, Indiana (home of the Hoosiers) and named his band after the Moore cult classic. Ever since coming together in 2000, Murder By Death has been climbing the ranks among modern-day indie rock bands. Their first LP, Like the Exorcist, but More Breakdancing, gave the band much-needed buzz; but, it was their fifth LP, 2012’s Good Morning; Magpie, that finally landed them on the Billboard charts.

Their brand of goth country has given Murder By Death a unique credo that few bands of its ilk have yet to touch. That unique branding goes a long way with separating Murder By Death from the rest of the pack, and, starting in May, the band will be hitting the road, going from coast-to-coast, spreading their brand of goth country to the masses.
