Murder by Death and Amanda Palmer Team Up for Vinyl Split

.
(PR) On May 15th, Murder by Death will release part 3 of their split "7" Series", this round featuring Amanda Palmer. The release is on 7" vinyl with cover design by comic book artist Ryan Browne and features the two acts trading covers with one another.

Side One showcases Murder by Death's take on Amanda's "Another Year", and Side Two is Amanda's cover of "Three Men Hanging" (with ZoŽ Keating on cello and Lyndon Chester on violin).

"We're excited to be working with Amanda," said MBD's Adam Turla. "We thought it would be a real challenge to perform a song by someone whose lyrics are so personal and revealing. After a lot of searching, we found the right song - 'Another Year.' Thanks for doing the series with us!"

"Murder by Death rendered one of the saddest "Who Killed Amanda Palmer" songs perfectly," says Amanda Palmer. "And covering 'Three Men Hanging' with my string section on tour was a blast - we learned it the day before and recorded it during soundcheck and again at the show that night in Portland! Just like rock and roll should be: live, quick and dirty."

This split is limited to 1,000 copies and is available for pre-order NOW at http://www.murderbydeath.com/merch. It WILL sell out quickly, so grab your copy while you still can. In fact, it's important to remember that many have already sold (as this is being promoted through Murder by Death's channels, as well) so there are even less than 1,000 available to AFP fans.
