ABOUT

If you are interested in joining us, e-mail us at booking AT the-murderhobos DOT c o m

Writing sessions are on Thursdays.
Rehearsals are on Sundays.

We are aiming to be a Campy Nerd Rock band with an energetic horn section, D&D inspired Fantasy Aesthetic and crazy stage show. Songs inspired by taking quests to slaughter rats in a shipyard, a bossfight with a Giant Rat named Cheesemonger, Tender Barbarian emotions, Dueling!, Troglodytes from Dimension-X, adventuring gnomes, the economic implications of selling magical boots in backwater villages, Minotaur sea chanties, PTSD from slaying goblins, etc.

We have 5 songs written already (which constitutes about half a set worth of material). There is a continuity across the songs which will lend to a cohesive performance. We plan on role playing live and we have confederates to dress up as monsters so audience members can become engaged in foam-sword LARP battles. You can be as involved in the performative aspect of it all as you'd like, so long as you're cool with dressing the part and playing make-believe on stage! We're having a blast with this so far and hope to find people who will also have a good time being creative with this concept / project!
