We will be announcing our support bands soon and posting links to buy tickets for all the shows once they go on sale next week.

My Ruin guitarist Mick Murphy Murphy is featured in a new interview discussing Ghosts And Good Stories. An excerpt is available below.“We do what we do on our own terms and have been isolated from the metal community in many ways,” says Murphy. “We’re an autonomous band that has up to this point, pretty much existed on our own. I realize this probably holds us back in some ways, but we’re also one of the more free-spirited bands out there and have enjoyed complete expressive freedom and a very do-it-yourself attitude throughout our entire career. Why bitch about it? We’ve made our own decisions and chosen our own path. Would I like to have a killer opening spot on a big tour? Sure, if it is the right gig for us. Do I think this is going to happen? Probably not, but that’s okay.”
Murphy has long been regarded as an unsung guitar hero by those in-the-know. Perhaps best described as possessing an Angus Young-meets-Tony Iommi style of shred, he puts in a raw wall-to-wall performance on Ghosts And Good Stories that will appeal to both the no-nonsense rock and aggression-happy metal masses. His diversity as a player shines through on the new record more than on any other My Ruin album.“I planned out the music on this record meticulously and I knew exactly what I wanted to get across,” Murphy explains. “I’m still a very hungry musician and songwriter because we’ve had to fight and work our asses off for everything we have achieved in this band. I watched too many bands that I grew up listening to get boring as hell as they aged and they just seemed too comfortable living in that rock’n’ roll bubble so the music suffered. I think that we’ve maintained our edge because we’ve never had that bubble to get lost in. We’re on the front lines of everything involving My Ruin, from the business to the music and pretty much always have been.”
