The first time, and last time, we caught The Murder Capital was at the Other Voices stage at Electric Picnic. The post-punk five-piece brought a fervid intensity to their set with lead singer James McGovern channeling the spirit of Ian Curtis in a fireball of rage. Unlike other acts on stage, there was no recording of their set which we can only assume is down to a rollout strategy by their management team Q Prime. In joining them, they link up with a meaty roster of acts such as The Black Keys, Foals, Metallica and Muse. With support slots to Slaves and Idles, expect much bigger stages for the boys in 2019.
