"At first glance, Murder By Death is a pretty dumb band name. Of course, this quartet's first moniker was Little Joe Gould, and almost anything is an improvement from that. But silly name aside, the group has carved out a pretty interesting niche for itself, thanks to four full-lengths full of spooky, cello-and-piano-accented gothic indie rock with a new-age Johnny Cash as a frontman. With a catalog full of songs about whiskey, the devil, zombies and love, it would be easy for MBD to be embedded in kitsch, but they take what they do incredibly seriously. More proof? The band's fifth album, Good Morning, Magpie, comes out in April. If you were ever looking for the perfect soundtrack as you sharpen a set of knives." - Riverfront Times

"Indiana-based alt-rock/indie folk band Murder by Death has described their sound as "Americana noir and dramatic post-punk" and while that's generally about right, it doesn't tell you anything about how good or fun their music is. The tone is often dark and even morose, but it leaves you surprisingly uplifted. ...Not many bands use an electric cello as a focal instrument, but if Murder by Death is any indication, they should. While Balliet's work shines, it never overwhelms the songs. In fact, few bands meld as well as Murder by Death. Each instrument complements the others and come together to create an astonishingly cohesive and unique sound. " -
