Watch Manhattan Murder Mystery’s Last Video For ‘Too Tough To Survive’


The Manhattan Murder Mystery gang


LA indie underground band Manhattan Murder Mystery is back in action with a new song, hilariously entitled ‘Too Tough To Survive’, and an artsy black and white video, filmed in some enigmatic graffiti biker East Los Angeles trailer park. The song runs like a battle, as it is always the case for Manhattan Murder Mystery, and a strong will to survive arises through an uplifting and triumphant hymn-like synth-drum melody, which comes back in circles with a sort of Bruce Springsteen-esque ‘Born to Run’ tempo! Add to this, frontman Matthew Teardrop’s signature drunk vocals, and you have an earworm, while his visceral delivery adds layers of fervor and toughness to the royal battle. He tends to get very personal then very dark when he enumerates several ways to die at the end of the song, from getting cancer, being run over, or jumping from a bridge after tossing all the kids! Ha, the darkest visions this guy can have while people are dancing their heart out, drinking and burning stuff inside a barrel. It looks like a mess and ends up like any Manhattan Murder Mystery show, you probably know what I am talking about if you have ever attended one.

‘Too Tough To Survive’ is the single of the band’s upcoming album ‘DUMB’, it was released via Indiscretion Records, a Los Angeles independent record label and imprint through The Manimal Group. As a release date for ‘DUMP’ still has to be determined, it will be their first full-length in five years,… five years? This means it was about time to get something new from Manhattan Murder Mystery.
