The Murder City Devils is the debut studio album by punk rock band Murder City Devils. It was recorded at Moon Studios, Olympia, and produced by Steve Wold. It was released in 1997 on Die Young Stay Pretty Records.
Called “Seattle’s most raucous rock band” by Tom Scanlon of the Seattle Times, the Murder City Devils first played together in 1997. Their sound was fringe rock leaning toward punk, including loud guitars from Dann Gallucci and Nate Manny, haunting keyboards from Leslie Hardy, formerly of Hole, and screaming vocals from Spencer Moody. After putting out three albums with Sub Pop Records, and a United States and Canadian tour that lasted the better part of a year, the band broke up in 2001.
