Back From the Dead

Few bands embody the love for all things macabre as well as Murder City Devils­—the nightmarish Northwestern garage band that revel in murder and grit. They named 2000’s seminal In Name And Blood and presented the credits as a batch of homicide reports, and they played their final show (documented on the DVD R.I.P.) on a Halloween night. Bassist Derek Fudesco went on to form Pretty Girls Make Graves, while raw-throated frontman Spencer Moody has done time in the murky, more experimental outfits Dead Low Tide, Smoke & Smoke, and most recently, Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive to Death. As anyone who’s seen the latter can attest, Moody remains a revelation live, and so this long-awaited reunion tour should be everything fans are hoping for and then some.
