Kelsey Simpkins wrote fondly of Murder Shoes Self Titled EP in her review – http://riftmagazine.com/2015/04/29/review-murder-shoes-self-titled-ep/ – and now the band has called it quits and City Pages has written an obituary for the band.

From City Pages:

Murder Shoes announced their disbanding on Facebook last Friday, and they’ll play their final gig in support of Band of Skulls at the Fine Line on Sunday. No concrete reason was given for the sudden farewell, though lead singer Tess Weinberg did state in an interview with We Love Music that things felt like “they had run their course.”
