Il Muro Del Canto was founded in 2010 in Rome.
In 2012, the band released their first album "L'Ammazzasette" (2012, Goodfellas), which follows the path begun in 2010 with the single Luce Mia and then the six-track EP Il Muro Del Canto. An album that shows a cultural universe rooted in the streets of the Capital: sixteen tracks in Roman dialect that project the listener into a journey with no return, among the stories and characters in the great and decadent human merry-go-round. Three videos are taken from the album 'L'Ammazzasette'. The first was 'La Spina', which was followed by those of 'Cristo De Legno' and 'Chi Mistica Mastica', all linked by a common narrative. 'L'Ammazzasette' was an extraordinary debut, with over 3,500 copies sold.
In April 2012, Il Muro del Canto, together with Ardecore and Bandajorona, participated in the first collection of Roman songs of the new millennium, strictly on vinyl, Mamma Roma Addio.
In December 2012, Il Muro del Canto participated in a concert inside the Rebibbia prison. This will not be the only time the group will bring their stories in front of an audience of inmates: it will happen on two other occasions, again at the Rebibbia Prison and then at Regina Coeli. The presentation tour of 'L'Ammazzasette' is more than 100 concerts including Arezzo Wave Love Festival, Etruria Eco Festival, Roma Incontra il Mondo, Genius Loci.
On 29 October 2013, Il Muro del Canto releases their second album 'Ancora Ridi'. The mixing is entrusted to Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Afterhours, Calibro 35). In the album there is a lot of Romanism, guitars in the best overseas tradition, western atmospheres in the style of Morricone and a distinctly folk accordion. The album is presented with two concerts in Rome, both sold out: Circolo degli Artisti and Nuovo Cinema Palazzo. Ancora Ridi also gets great feedback in the national press, including Il Fatto Quotidiano, XL, Il Mucchio, Blow Up, Rumore, Il Corriere dello Sport, Il Messaggero.
Together with Assalti Frontali, Il Muro Del Canto recorded "Il Lago Che Combatte" and made a video of it, in support of the city's initiatives to make public the park that hosts Rome's only natural lake, created after a building abuse twenty years earlier. The video reached around 250,000 views on YouTube in a week. The cause gets a report on Rai 3's Chi L'Ha Visto? and several passages on Blob, Rai 3.
In April 2015, 'Figli Come Noi' was released, a song and video related to the theme of police abuse in Italy. The video (directed by Marcello Saurino) was made in collaboration with ACAD (Association Against Abuses in Uniform). Assalti Frontali, Boris Sollazzo, Chef Rubio, Don Pasta, Elio Germano, Giulia Bosetti, Ignazio Oliva, Luca Bertazzoni, Michele Alhaique, Piotta, Stefano Fresi, Valerio Di Benedetto, Zerocalcare participated in the video. The video premiered at the 2015 Perugia International Journalism Festival.
During the 'Ancora Ridi' tour, IMDC formed numerous artistic collaborations, including those with the Bestie Rare and Colle Der Fomento. He played on stage at the Primo Maggio festival in Taranto, alongside the likes of Caparezza, Subsonica and Marlene Kuntz.
Still in 2015, Il Muro del Canto arranges and plays the first single from Piotta's latest album, '7 Vizi Capitale'.
In September 2015, Rai 3 used some of their songs for the soundtrack of an episode of I Dieci Comandamenti. The episode in which they are featured is Arrivederci Roma, (the song that closes Ancora Ridi), played by the group during the end credits, in an actual video clip. Rai1, during the programme I Giganti, called them to represent the music of Lazio.
In 2016 IMDC is among the 10 Finalists for the Amnesty International Prize 2016 - Una Voce per La Libertà, thanks to the song Figli Come Noi.
In 2016, Il Muro del Canto released their third and highly anticipated studio work, 'Fiore De Niente'. The Roman band offers an album that highlights their distinctive traits and, at the same time, introduces novelties in both the lyrics and the arrangements. "Fiore De Niente' is a contradiction in terms. The flower, the highest expression of a plant's life, is contrasted with the idea of nothingness and emptiness. The result is a reflection on the times we are living in: the individual's ability to flourish even in the limiting and oppressive conditions that everyday reality imposes on us is exalted. The "Fiore de Niente" tour took the Muro del Canto between March 2016 and August 2017 to more than one hundred concerts all over Italy with a grand finale in Rome in Piazzale del Verano during the Night of San Lorenzo with more than 5,000 participants chanting the words of the band's songs.
In August 2017, the song "7 Vizi Capitale" by Piotta and Il Muro del Canto became the theme song for the TV series Suburra broadcast in 190 countries worldwide on Netflix.
On 19 October 2018, the band's fourth album, 'L'Amore mio non more', is released.
The tour to present the album counted over 50 dates across the peninsula and saw the band play in front of more than 5000 people in Piazza Sauli in Garbatella, during the concert-event presenting the album in Rome.
The album was preceded by the single 'La vita è una', with the video clip featuring actor Marco Giallini in the role of the custodian of the Palestra Popolare del Quarticciolo, and the second extract 'Reggime er gioco', whose video stars Vinicio Marchioni.
Subsequently, the band released the official video clip of the song 'L'amore mio non more', made during the album presentation day in Rome, thanks to the support of the large audience present
In 2021, the band released the tracks 'Controvento' and 'Cometa', the first chapters anticipating the fifth studio album, entitled 'Maestrale' and to be released in June 2022.
