Murder by Death Ressurects It’s 7×7 Series.

Mamas don't let your babies crow up to be cowboys.

After taking a lengthy break from it, Murder by Death are releasing the fourth installment of their 7×7 Series of split 7″s with bands they are friends with – each one covering the other.  Past installments have included Amanda Palmer, O’Death and our very own advice columnist William Elliott Whitmore.  Who is backing up MBD this time?

This guy. Sadly though, not this dog.

Yep, the next 7″ in the series will feature sad-bastard Americana artist and long time MBD entourage member Sam Lowry.   Lowry is covering their song “Shiola” – backed by a who’s who of the Bloomington, IN bar scene (and to a smaller extent music scene) calling themselves The Fauxgues.  Murder by Death will cover Slowry’s song “Ink for the Pen” in a version they have described as “pretty metal.”

Order the 7″ AND the brand new MBD DVD (their first) by visiting their site here.  We have some compromising photos of the guy who edited the DVD so with any luck (blackmail luck that is) we’ll have some deleted scenes, and like an internet exclusive or something.
