2018 release. The Other Shore is the eighth studio album from Louisville, KY-based indie Americana trailblazers Murder by Death. It's an epic space-western about a ravaged earth, it's fleeing populace, and a relationship in jepoardy. Here, the group explores untapped genres, dynamic and emotional touches, intersecting and introspective storylines, and remote edges of the galaxy. Welcome, after nearly 20 years, thousands of performances around the world, and eight albums, you've landed on your new Murder by Death. The band's name is derived from the 1976 Robert Moore film of the same name. Murder by Death released it's first studio album (Like the Exorcist, but More Breakdancing) in 2002.
