Good things come in threes, and for Bloomington, IN, rock band Murder By Death, that is more than just a cliché. MBD just made three big announcements that are sure to have long-term effects on this already 11-year-old band.

Scott Brackett of Okkervil River has been officially added to MBD’s full-time lineup after previously touring with the band, and a new tour in support of April 2010’s Good Morning, Magpie is set to begin in June. Additionally, MBD has switched management and is now on RavenHouse’s roster, which also includes the Hold Steady, Modest Mouse and the Mountain Goats.
