Beware The Crone!

 Dear Friends,

It’s after midnight in Los Angeles and the witching hour has come. 
It is officially my BIRTHDAY! 

 It’s hard to believe I have just turned 50 years old but I have and I am celebrating in the studio with champagne and the man I love who has had my back for the last 15 years. Thank you to my husband Mick Murphy for making this milestone the most memorable one yet. ♡ 

While many women in the music industry feel the need to hide their age in this day and age, fuck that, I have always stood in the truth of who I am as an artist so I am going to OWN IT!

This last year has been filled with many eye opening experiences both good & bad. I have learned that fools will take a knife and stab people in the back but the wise will take a knife, cut the cord, free themselves from the fools and move forward with a middle finger. I refuse to feed the egos of monsters male or female. Let them starve.

As I enter this new chapter of my life, I am entering a wiser woman and stronger than I have ever been. I have made my fair share of mistakes and learned hard lessons along the way but at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what (or who) knocks you down, what matters is whether or not you get back up off the ground and how you react to certain situations. Pigs will be pigs but wolves don't lose sleep over opinions of sheep. Honesty is still the holiest disease.

Besides touring with My Ruin this past year and designing a new Merch Church as well as several sold out collections for BGD (thank you to all of my Blasphemous Girls for the continued support, you ladies rule!), I have also recorded a song on the new Teenage Time Killers album coming out soon on Rise Records! As the only woman lending vocals to the project, I am beyond honored to be a part of it alongside so many incredible musicians and legendary artists.

Amidst this, I have been quietly keeping a secret very close to my heart which has allowed me to re-ignite a fire and create some personal magick on the microphone while re-discovering my first passion as an artist and producer. Something I have been longing to do for a very long time now. That being said, I have some exciting news I would like to share with you on this special day.


While it may come as a shock to those who only know me as a screamer, it's NOT a rock recording. It is a dark & witchy journey back to my hip hop roots with an old school West Coast influence and it is my birthday present to myself. That's all I can say for now because I am currently mixing it but I can't wait to unveil more about it in the coming weeks and share it with all of you soon.

As I ring in my birthday and celebrate my new album "Vintage Curses" today, I invite those of you who have supported me and my music in its many forms over the years to join me in a toast while I close this post with a (slightly altered) Tom Waits quote...

 "Champagne for my TRUE friends and FUCK YOU to my sham friends!"  


Love, )O(

The Sacred Mood U.K. Tour!

 Dear Friends,

We have an important announcement regarding our upcoming UK Tour 
and a few changes which have been made.

The first is to our show at Fibbers in York on Friday the 22nd of August:

Due to the unprofessional attitude of the original promoter (Martyn Rudd of Screaming Tarts Presents) towards both artist and our agent, this show was almost in jeopardy however, as we were determined not to lose it, we have managed to secure the same date at the same venue through Mr Tim Hornsby of MRH Presents who we are now happily working with. Our last time playing Fibbers was in 2006 and we’re looking forward to seeing all our friends & fans in and around York for a killer show once again!

Unfortunately, what was to be our final show of the tour at Tribal Nightclub in Colchester on the 23rd of August has now been moved, as we have just found out that the venue is closing down and sadly the Arts Centre (where we played last time) was not available. For those who purchased tickets for the Tribal show, refunds will be sent to you via Paypal.
Any questions, please contact:

The GOOD NEWS is that we have managed to re-locate this show to The Waterfront in Norwich which is not far away and as an extra bonus, we will now be holding an after show / end of tour party in the venue and in tandem with the Meltdown Club night that runs until 3am. All show tickets will guarantee free entry to the party and meet & greet with the band after our set!


We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused but please know that behind the scenes we have all been working day and night (for months) to ensure this tour will be the best it can be for both our band and our fans. That being said, some problems were simply beyond our control.

We have also just confirmed a few new bands who will now be joining us 

and our special guests for the tour, Sanctorum  on the following dates:

16.8.14 - The Underworld | London: Neanderthal
17.8.14 - The Haunt | Brighton:
King Goat & Suicide Veil
19.8.14 - Sound Control | Manchester:
Extreme OD & Nomad
20.8.14 - 02 Academy | Birmingham:
Extreme OD & General
21.8.14 - The Fleece | Bristol:
Spider Kitten
22.8.14 - Fibbers | York:
Gods of Hellfire
23.8.14 - The Waterfront| Norwich:

We look forward to seeing all our friends & fans when we return in August  
and don’t forget that day tickets are also now available to see us play @ Alt Fest  so make sure to come see us rock the METAL stage on Friday the 15th

We are coming a long way and this may be your last chance to see My Ruin live in the UK for a while so mark your calendars and get your ADVANCE TICKETS today through all the usual agents! 
Thank you for your continued support & rock love!

Introducing the "Triple M" (Mick Murphy Model) Signature Guitar!

(Photo by Gary Bandfield | Tour Bus Live)
Introducing the "Triple M" (Mick Murphy Model) signature guitar

 specially created by legendary guitar designer Grover Jackson for GJ2 Guitars!

“My GJ2 guitars are so awesome that I no longer want to play anything else. The rock-solid tone, relentless sustain, singing clarity, and amazing feel of instruments crafted with pride by the master (Grover Jackson) make them the best guitars I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing. I’m proud to be a part of the GJ2 family.” – Mick Murphy 

 The new GJ2 Mick Murphy model is a stripped-down, straight-ahead rock machine that looks and plays like a rocket. Made for the “Master of Heaviosity” and bearing a likeness of his trademark =MM= signature, it features a single humbucker with a hard-tail bridge, making it ideal for high-octane, tuned-down riffing. The =MM= will be offered in new colors exclusive to the model. The design is based on the iconic collaboration between Grover Jackson and Randy Rhoads from the dawn of the ‘80s that became the original “RR” model (later evolving into the GJ2 Concorde, which first inspired Mick Murphy to take up the guitar. A longtime favorite in Mick’s guitar collection has been his vintage 1980s-era “RR” Jackson model made by Grover Jackson. Now he’s excited to play this updated version—bearing his own initials—made using modern production methods by the original designer himself.

 The new signature guitar was unveiled at the 2014 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) convention during the Media Preview Day event at the Anaheim Convention Center. Mick Murphy and GJ2 co-founder Jon Gold presented the guitar on stage for the assembled press and Mick demonstrated it at the  GJ2  booth. Check it out: 

Audio Fanzine also posted some cool footage from the NAMM Preview event:

"There are not too many true guitar heroes around these days but Mick Murphy is one of the few. We love his work with My Ruin and Chevy Metal and we are really proud to have him playing our guitars." - Grover Jackson | GJ2 Guitars
"There are a few reasons that we have welcomed Mick into the GJ2 team. When you hear him play, the first reason is obvious, he rocks! Then there is the simple fact that we like him. It is refreshing to get the chance to work with someone who is totally committed to, and passionate about his craft and yet is down to earth and easy to get on with. He gives us great “real world” feedback about our guitars. We know that our work together will be long term and mutually fruitful.” – Jon Gold | GJ2 Guitars
"Even after the fevered buildup from friends about this guitarist Mick Murphy, he still managed to wildly surpass expectations. Mick blends a sense of rock musicality with precision, raw power, and riveting showmanship. Prepare to be blown away."
-Mitch Devine | GJ2 Guitars
"I've seen & heard Mick Murphy play the guitar, and seriously he's freaking incredible. It makes perfect sense that he plays a GJ2. Dude shreds.”Tom Dumont | No Doubt
