The Murder Capital announce second album Gigi’s Recovery, new song ‘A Thousand Lives’ & Dublin show


The Murder Capital, are back with a new song, and news of their second album and gigs in Europe and a Dublin date.

Gigi’s Recovery is the band’s new album produced by John Congleton  out on January 20th via Human Season, and the band have released a new song ‘A Thousand Lives’, the followup to the Britpop-esque song ‘Only Good Things’ in July

‘A Thousand Lives’ is a Radiohead-esque track that Front man James McGovern says:

“Knowing that the day is only X-hours long, alongside my understanding of how love can be the true restorative seed, means that if and when you are so lucky to find it (and it is true) the seemingly small glance that is our lifetime could never contain enough of those days or those hours. Even a thousand of those lifetimes would never be enough.”

The Murder Capital play Vicar Street on February 26th 2023 courtesy of Singular Artists and tickets are on sale on sale Wed Sept 28th at 9am.
