Rig Rundown: Murder by Death
Down-tuned axes and a thirst for experimentation fuel the rootsy indie-rock band’s sound.
Armstrong has plenty of headroom with his Orange Terror Bass 1000 head. He plugs this holy terror into a custom Olde Crow 4x12 cabinet.
Murder by Death’s bassist Matt Armstrong managed to squeeze in a quick interview and walk us through the band’s gear before their show in Nashville. The band’s spacey-meets-gothic vibe is powered by low-tuned axes, effect-laden cellos, and a unique approach to tone.
