Irish quintet The Murder Capital come from the post-punk scene influenced by Joy Division, The Cure, Wire or Interpol, with a live show that is a geyser of fury and theatricality that puts them on a par with more current proposals like Savages, Shame, IDLES, black midi or their compatriots Fontaines D.C.
And what separates them from them? Well, clearly, James McGovern, their singer. An old-fashioned frontman who takes to the stage (or jumps from it) in the full knowledge that performing live should always be synonymous with show time.
It was after their debut "When I Have Fears" and it is now with "Gigi's Recovery", the new work where their sharp rock expands in all directions.
The Murder Capital's show is supported by Liveurope, the first pan-European initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote European emerging artists. Liveurope is co-founded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
