Murder By Death

Recorded in Dallas with producer John Congleton (Explosions In The Sky, the Polyphonic Spree),

Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon

is Bloomington, Indiana's Murder By Death's sixth disc and the group's first for notable roots label Bloodshot Records. The pre-order campaign for the album, due September 25, has already begun, with a multi-tiered Kickstarter offering that has grossed nearly $58,000. There are humble pledge amounts for simple vinyl and digital releases, but packages for high-rolling fans, too. If you pledge $1,000 or more, for example, you can pick any song for the band to cover for a future release, make their drummer get a tattoo of anything you choose or even get any and every future piece of merch or music that MBD releases. A $10K package basically buys you into their inner circle, and they'll probably let you play tambourine on the road. Just kidding, but they will take you on a tour of their favorite whiskey distilleries in a "badass" limo.
