Melbourne’s 60’s tinged Psych-Rock outfit The Murlocs recently played at Levitation and will perform at Red Rocks Amphitheatre today alongside King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard with whom they share several band members. In celebration of their national headlining Fall tour kicking off soon, the band has unleashed the “Living Under a Rock” (Live at the Forum) video.
Fans will also have an opportunity to connect with the band directly at their Reddit r/indieheads AMA taking place Sunday, Nov 6 @ 7pmET (Monday, Nov 7 @ 9am Melbourne). This all follows their newest studio album Rapscallion, which arrived on September 16th, 2022, via ATO Records.
Frontman Ambrose Kenny-Smith shares:
Some people live a sheltered life by choice and some people are born into it. ‘Rapscallion’ has had enough of living under a rock. It’s time for a fresh start.
Self-produced by the band in the early stages of the pandemic, Rapscallion was recorded remotely in the home studios of Kenny-Smith (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Callum Shortal (guitar), Matt Blach (drums), Cook Craig (bass), and Tim Karmouche (keys). All five members also perform in other bands: Kenny-Smith and Craig each play in King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Shortal plays guitar in ORB, and Karmouche and Blach are frontmen for Crepes and Beans.
