Love Fame Tragedy have today unveiled the penultimate track from their forthcoming sophomore EP Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void, out 20th March via Good Soldier Songs/AWAL.
Please Don’t Murder Me (part 2)‘ is a stripped-back examination of the often anxiety-filled intensity of love. Murph’s crystalline vocals come to the fore, perfectly harmonised with Crystal Fighters’ Eleanor Fletcher over finger-picked guitar which builds into ominously crackling feedback as the short track reaches its climax. – listen HERE
The Wombats frontman Murph is bringing Love Fame Tragedy back home for an extensive UK tour in the spring.

Named after a seminal Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Tate Modern, Love Fame Tragedy’s first EP I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It, came out in September. Featuring Pixies’ Joey Santiago, alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton, Matt Chamberlain of Soundgarden, Lauren Aquilina & Maddi-Jean Waterhouse, it garnered widespread support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, NME, The Times and Metro. Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void sees Murph bring in Bastille’s Dan Smith, as well as Eleanor Fletcher of Crystal Fighters, alongside Maddi-Jean Waterhouse for part two of this most collaborative of solo projects.
