Murder City Devils For Halloween

Release delayed by keyboardist's injury

Seattle punk-rockers the Murder City Devils (known for their evil organ sound and lead singer Spencer Moody's howling vocals), will release their fourth full-length in October, just in time for Halloween. The as-yet-untitled album was originally scheduled for a June release, but was pushed back to accommodate keyboardist Leslie Hardy, who has carpal tunnel syndrome and plans to have hand surgery, according to MCD guitarist Nate Manny. The six-piece is currently finishing up a brief West Coast tour, playing Portland, Ore., on April 6 and Seattle on April 8 and 9. "We don't set out to be evil," Manny said. "We don't try to make goals or set rules on what a song can or can't sound like. But by the time the six of us are done with a song, it ends up turning out that way." — Jenny Tatone [Wednesday, April 4, 2001]
