Produced by Flood (PJ Harvey, New Order, Foals) the album features all four singles from the band so far, ‘Feeling Fades’, ‘Green & Blue’ & ‘Don’t Cling To Life’ and ‘More Is Less’

An exercise in both darkness and light, ‘When I Have Fears’ only serves to highlight the early ambition in the band’s sound. From the post-rock build and breakdowns of the two-part ‘Slowdance’, to the tender, bruised confessional of “On Twisted Ground” and industrial pulse of closer ‘Love, Love, Love’, there’s a consistent intensity throughout that marks out The Murder Capital as a band arriving fully formed on their debut album.

The Murder Capital are more than a punk band, and in a league of their own.”

Loud & Quiet

“An album just waiting eagerly to be a classic.”


“”a band gearing up to scorch the earth around them… a fierce debut”


“A debut album of raw potency.”


“One of the best debuts for some time.”


“The Murder Capital are outrageously exciting live. The young Dublin quintet’s brutal art-punk rock is thrilling on the edge of terrifying: new year fireworks in a metal tent. They make the brutal beautiful.”

The Guardian

“The Murder Capital are one of those most oddly entertaining prospects – a punk band that can truly instill can’t-look-away levels of captivation.”


“Ireland’s best new band?”
