The Murder Capital have returned with a new single, Only Good Things.

The swaying, cheery rock ballad was produced by John Congleton and marks the Irish band's first new material since their 2019 debut LP, 'When I Have Fears', and the first taste of the follow-up. Frontman James McGovern commented:

"This track for us has been an exciting evolution for the band. It’s so bright. It’s so colorful. This is a part of the narrative of the overall record that we feel reaches a real place of inner calm, inner peace but at its core, it’s a love song. You get a song like this where, the protagonist in this song is quite simply asking - not pleading - just willing to ask their counterpart to rid them of their intrusive thoughts, the devils on their shoulders and to be truly vulnerable. We’re so excited to go to a place like this because perhaps it’s not what is expected of us. It stood out to me during the creation of this record that it is more about the friends that are still here and celebrating those connections, those relationships and being unafraid of life and it’s many seasons. Where ‘Only Good Things’ stands within the record is at a moment where the sonic and the lyrical narrative especially, are of newfound joy."

The group returned to the live stage earlier in 2022, performing at Primavera Sound in Spain, and VYV Festival and Solidays in France, alongside a support slot for Pearl Jam earlier this month as part of London's British Summer Time Hyde Park.

In addition to European festivals, they'll play Truck Festival in Oxfordshire this weekend, All Together Now in County Waterford, Ireland later in the month, and Green Man in Brecon in August.
