The Rock City archives: 2015

Murdock, Rock City Basement (As Part Of Hey Hey Hey)

  • Saturday 31st January 2015

A three piece technical hardcore noise band that destroy all pre-conceived genre rules by smashing them into the ground. Murdock interblend ferocious metal, rock and roll, noise, jazz and punk with off-kilter, intense jarring time signatures and deliver it with an honest, sincere and inexhaustible passion.

Murdock have built up a very strong following and an outstanding live reputation from their intense, reckless and destructive live show. They play past the limit of their abilities with a disregard for their own well being and the comfort levels of their audiences. "If you are not bleeding or exhausted, what is the point?"

Murdock's forthcoming album is to be released in the summer of 2014 on Destroy Everything Records
