The Murder Capital
About The Murder Capital
Dublin-based post-punk group the Murder Capital explore the darker side of society utilizing rumbling dread and the cathartic elements of post-punk as their tools.
Despite each member originating from locales across Ireland, the five met while studying at BIMM Music college in Dublin and formed a band led by vocalist James McGovern and Damien Tuit (guitar), Diarmuid Brennan (drums), Cathal Roper (guitar), and Gabriel Paschal Blake (bass). They released their debut single "More or Less" in 2018 as a music video, which unexpectedly blew up online, propelling the band forward. With the hype swelling around them, they quickly began work on a debut album, 2019's When I Have Fears. Produced by Mark Ellis (aka Flood) the album centers around the loss of a friend to suicide.
