New York Hardcore icons, Murphy’s Law, are amped up for their first Australian tour in their 30 year career.
Murphy’s Law were founded in Astoria, Queens, New York City in 1983. Over the past 30 years, they have become cornerstones of the American hardcore legacy. Murphy’s Law ride the line between obnoxious skatepunk, grooving urban rock ‘n roll and molten metal but while most of their contemporaries and followers aimed to be the most brutal, tough or politically conscious band around, Murphy’s Law instead promoted an upbeat party attitude.
Through countless line up changes, Murphy’s Law’s lone remaining founder is Jimmy Gestapo. Always the life of the party, Gestapo has a reputation for making sure every punter in the crowd has a damn good time. At a recent show in New York, Spin.com reported “During “Panty Raid,” someone brought a bucket of beers onstage, which Murphy’s Law frontman Jimmy Gestapo distributed to the front row, along with shots of Jager.”
In 2013, Murphy’s Law’s line up once again includes journeyman guitarist, Todd Youth (ex-Danzig, ex-Agnostic Front, ex-D Generation) and is completed by Raven (Sax), Dug ‘The Mouth’ (Bass), Vincent Alva (drums) and Ian ‘The Welshman’.
2013 will the first chance Australian hardcore heads will get to party on with one of the most revered bands in all of NYHC lore, Murphy’s Law! Let the party begin!
