The Murderburgers are a high-energy melodic three piece punk rock'n'roll band from Scotland who deal in lightening quick anthemic intelligent pop-punk bangers. Formed in 2007 by lead vocalist and guitarist Fraser, The Murderburgers have grown from gobby Ramones-esque young punks into arguably Scotland's finest ever punk rock export.
Spending endless months on the road on both sides of the Atlantic, including playing the legendary Gilman Street in Berkeley, California and surviving near-death experiences in mainland Europe during 2012, the band have built their reputation on the strength of their dedication, passion, hard work and sheer talent, not to mention being armed with some of the finest hooky pop-punk anthems this side of early Green Day. With an unrivalled work ethic, they have wracked up over seven hundred shows across the globe since their formation, making for razor-sharp live shows bursting full of blood and guts, mixed with typical dry Scottish humour.
2013 saw the band sign to legendary independent punk label Asian Man Records (original home of Alkaline Trio/The Lawrence Arms) and release "These Are Only Problems", their latest full-length album. Since the record's release, the band have been gigging relentlessly as always; touring the US on their way to Gainesville FEST (in both 2013 and 2014) , supporting Alkaline Trio on their massive UK tour and playing shows across the length and breadth of Europe including 2 tours with Masked Intruder, as well as recording a live session at the BBC's legendary Maida Vale Studios for Mike Davies' Radio One Punk Show. 2014 also saw Asian Man Records re-release the band's 2012 album "How To Ruin Your Life"; a classic of the modern pop-punk genre.
The Murderburgers new full length album "The 12 Habits Of Highly Defective People" is set for release in Oct/Nov 2016 on Asian Man Records/Round Dog Records, which was recorded and produced by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios in Chicago. The line-up on the new record consists of Fraser on lead vocals and guitar, Zack from Dear Landlord on guitar and vocals, and Masked Intruder's Yellow and Red on bass and drums.
Most unhappy when not on tour, The Murderburgers are a relentless punk rock juggernaut that lives to be on the road. Their infectious pop-punk bluster deals with the universal issues; life, death, depression, poverty, mental illness, hope; wrapped up in an explosive ball of anxiety and chaos, delivered at 200 miles per hour whilst channeling the spirit forefathers The Ramones and The Queers. The Murderburgers represent all that is great about Scottish punk rock and are a band that we are truly proud to see taking over the world.
