Murderedman readies sophomore LP for Aqualamb

Aqualamb Records announces its next release: the self-titled LP by Murderedman, due July 22 in 100 pg book, vinyl and digital formats.
Murderedman’s sophomore LP, a selection of eight songs honed over three years, navigates between expansive, lush melodies and blastbeat-driven technical attacks. A striking display of restraint and release, this self-titled album diverges markedly from their prior recordings—which were built on dissonant riffs and overdriven vocals—by embracing open space and clarity. A patient and disciplined examination of anxiety and melancholy, this latest effort magnifies its extremes singularly, allowing them to flourish in contrast to one another.
Formed by four lifers of the Cleveland avant-rock scene, Murderedman built its sound on the bleakness of early goth-punk, the dirgy scum of the AmRep catalog, and the stark minimalism of no wave. A unified vision quickly emerged from this convergence of influences, leading to their raw seven-inch debut, followed by a handful of limited cassettes, and 2013’s LP, Love in Danger. On stage, Murderedman presents a dramatic live spectacle refined over their four year history while sharing bills with a diverse range of bands including ONO, Vaz, Obnox, Floor, Oozing Wound, and Tiger Hatchery.
The live experience showcases their enigmatic vocalist who creates a visual atmosphere through compelling manipulations of light, shadow, and reflection. His performative expressions highlight musical contrasts of beauty and brutality, often culminating in a mess of shattered mirrors, damaged gear, and scattered flowers. Murderedman is not just giving you music, they’re giving you theatre.
July 9 – (Special Early Release Show) Cleveland, OH @ Now That’s Class with Hiram-Maxim and Glass Traps.
July 23 – Brooklyn, NY @ Acheron w/ Stats, Dan Friel and Hiram-Maxim
