Departures, Murphy's Kids' latest full length release on Community Records, makes clear to the fans and critics alike that Murphy's Kids is a force in the studio as well as on stage. It showcases their breadth of style, but speaks to common themes; it will take you out into a spacey-jam, but is intertwined with crushing riffs and deep reggae grooves. “We want it to showcase the styles that shake your hips, but touch your heart.” says John Charlet,
Murphy's Kids' singer. And the music and energy of Murphy's Kids do precisely that.
Murphy's Kids has been seen at outdoor festivals and punk dives. They have been featured on bills with artists that range as widely as Alien Ant Farm, The Fray and Soldiers of Jah Army. They are a versatile group and you'll see them blazing through 40-minute rock sets and pulling 3+ hour reggae-dance marathons in any given club, college or festival where good music and great fun can be found. Murphy's Kids is coming to your town: get ready to feel the heat!
