THE AMATORY MURDER - U & I

Brooklyn-based alternative rock band The Amatory Murder is set to release their second full-length album since their 2011 inception.  The album, Neurotica, follows on the heels of a live album, released earlier this year, and three other releases from previous years.  The Amatory Murder finances and produces their own music.  Their aim is to make something easily accessible, and their newest music video, “U & I” hits that mark.  As the second single off the upcoming album, it takes a left turn from the first single, “The Deadliest Rose.”  “U & I” has more of a pop-sound, reminiscent of summer tunes and pop-punk’s early-to-mid-2000s heyday. 

In keeping with a summer vibe, the band chose to film “U & I” on a beach.  Lead singer and producer Christian Peppas says, “I spoke to director Jonathan Rivera about shooting on a beach which, due to regulations in New York, is near impossible to do without spending tons of money—which we don’t have […]Every location seemed to run up huge tabs. Then, our bassist happened to move last minute to a new apartment near a private beach. So on a warm day in September-- armed with some cameras and beers-- Jonathan, some close friends and us met up on the beach and basically had fun.”  After Neurotica being in production for over a year--prolonged by the mid year live album release-- it is certainly gratifying to see The Amatory Murder guys hanging out and having fun in this lighthearted video.

Neurotica will release digitally via the band’s Band Camp page on November 15th, and then physically later this month.
