Murder For Girls Delivers A Killer Alt-Rock Style

If you haven’t heard of Murder For Girsl just yet, than it’s about that time.

This band just released an EP that brings back a stylish gunge powerhouse of a sound and it’s done with a ton of attitude.

Right from the first track from the Six Stories EP, you get caught up in those vocals that just scream edgy, witty, and almost devilish approach.

These guys are fun fun fun and it’s great to hear this female driven hard rock crush it with such swagger if you will.

The band consists of two girls and one guy just to be clear. The guy is the bass player and holy crap is he good at it. The style gives the band a touch of punk rock almost always.

But everyone is outstanding here. Front woman and guitarist is excellent as is the drummer.

These guys really have this sound down and it works so well that it’s completely charming. Yes, charming.

They also have quite a back-log of releases that you’ll like so check those out but start with the Six Stories EP.

Start with “Monster”. You won’t regret it.

MURDER FOR GIRLS: A Brief History

Hailing from the City of Steel, Murder for Girls is a femme-forward trio combining elements of grunge, punk, and indie into an explosive blend of alternative rock aesthetics and riot grrl energy.

Conceived in 2012 by bassist Jonathan Bagamery, he initially struggled with multiple lineup changes until 2013, when Michele – with her hard-hitting, energetic beats and irreverent vocals – stepped in and changed the game. By 2015, local songstress and grunge focused guitarist Steph signed on after seeing the band at a local club and becoming enamored with their melodic sound and style. Since then, the group has unleashed three full length albums and their latest triumph, the Six Stories EP.

They have shared the stage with such notable artists as MC5, Bob Mould (Husker Du), Richie Ramone, Shonen Knife, and Bash and Pop. and recorded their 2020 LP, Done in the Dark, with legendary Tommy Stinson  of The Replacements and Guns and Roses.

Their new Six Stories EP is available now for streaming and download through most major outlets. They look forward to expanding their sound and base, and hope to get on the road in the coming months while writing new material for future releases..

Sometimes punky, sometimes riotous, sometimes balladeering. Always rocking.  They’ll break your heart and you’ll love them for it…​
