The Murder Capital have announced a surprise London show to “mark the beginning of a new chapter”

They'll hit the capital's Lafayette on Thursday, 22nd September.

The Murder Capital have announced a surprise London show for next week.

The band will hit the capital’s Lafayette on 22nd September – that’s next Thursday – for a one-off date.

“This night will mark the beginning of a new chapter, and we wanna linger a little while too long at the afters with you all,” the band write.

Limited tickets are available now for those on The Murder Capital mailing list. You can get more details in the tweet below.

It follows up on July’s new single ‘Only Good Things’ – the first new material from the band since debut album ‘When I Have Fears’.

Speaking about the track at the time, frontman James McGovern explained: “This track for us has been an exciting evolution for the band. It’s so bright. It’s so colourful. This is a part of the narrative of the overall record that we feel reaches a real place of inner calm, inner peace but at its core, it’s a love song. You get a song like this where, the protagonist in this song is quite simply asking – not pleading – just willing to ask their counterpart to rid them of their intrusive thoughts, the devils on their shoulders and to be truly vulnerable.

“We’re so excited to go to a place like this because perhaps it’s not what is expected of us. It stood out to me during the creation of this record that it is more about the friends that are still here and celebrating those connections, those relationships and being unafraid of life and it’s many seasons. Where ‘Only Good Things’ stands within the record is at a moment where the sonic and the lyrical narrative especially, are of newfound joy.”

There’s no firm news of their second album yet, but we’re expecting to hear more ‘soon’.
