The Skinny: Basick Records is very excited to announce signing noise-punk-metallers Murdock and will release their debut album Dead Lung on April 13. The Dublin, Ireland 3-piece have released a stream of brand new track “Deer Noises,” the first track to be taken from Dead Lung. Check it out above.

Destroying all preconceived genre rules and smashing them into the ground, Murdock
interblend ferocious metal, rock and roll, noise, jazz and punk with off-kilter, intense jarring time signatures and deliver it with an honest, sincere and inexhaustible passion.

Having gained an outstanding reputation for their intense, reckless and destructive live show, Murdock play past the limit of their abilities with a disregard for their own well-being and the comfort levels of their audiences, whilst never compromising their inherent precision. However their level of energy and conviction is unsurprising given that they honed their skills sharing staged with the likes of Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sick Of It All, Rolo Tomassi and many more.

01/29 – The MacBeth – London, United Kingdom
01/31 – Nottingham Rock City – Nottingham, United Kingdom
02/01 – Voodoo Lounge – Dublin, Ireland w/ Sick Of It All
02/02 – The Limelight – Belfast, United Kingdom w/ Sick Of It All
