Emily Davis and The Murder Police are an alt-folk-punk band living in the desert southwest with an affinity for writing aggressive, introspective music. Davis' folk-punk has always had an edge, having built a solid reputation in their hometown of El Paso and around the country with their fiery performances, a series of punk cover videos on YouTube, and three soulful solo albums — No Real Destination, Dark Matter and The Worst Kind of Curse. That edge got sharper in 2016 when Emily Davis and The Murder Police was formed with Jose Macias on bass, Jorge Torres on guitar, and Tomas Tinajero on drums. Their debut album, Same Old World, was released in October 2018. The group has toured frequently since its release,
EDMP has opened up for acts such as Sparta, The Kyle Gas Band, Neko Case, The Toasters, Leftover Crack, Authority Zero, Cold War Kids, and had a 16-day run with Bad Religion in late 2019. They will be releasing their second full-length album Spring 2021.
