Big Dark Love reflects a different, bigger, and more complex side of the band. As hinted in the title, the 10 songs circle a central theme of love, only in this case, the oft-traveled topic is examined through a non-traditional kaleidoscope: the love of a parent for their child, the struggle between unconditional love and morality, loving to excess. There can sometimes be a dusky patina of despair overlaying glints of hope.

For a band that has built its formidable, near 15-year career around a consideration to tension, release, bombast, ecstasy, and highest-highs vs. lowest-lows, it is something to say that this is Murder By Death s most dynamic release to date. Sonically here, their signature sound rootsy indie rock, cinematic gothic ballads, and rousing pub rock shout-alongs mixes with enlivening new stylistic elements touches of pop, synth-y electronics, and psych rock only hinted at on previous albums.

Big Dark Love was recorded at La La Land in Louisville, KY in the summer of 2014. It was produced by Murder By Death and Kevin Ratterman, and mixed by John Congleton.
