If you’re not familiar with Knife Party’s work and their EP title and cover art (see above) still aren’t enough of an indicator for you, let me say it now: these guys bring the ruckus! The duo, made up of Pendulum frontman, Rob Swire, and his fellow band member, Gareth McGrillen, are right to describe their work as seizure music. It is not for the faint of heart. The ‘Rage Valley’ EP has been released a day early, i.e. today, on Beatport due to leaks earlier this week. The EP features “Rage Valley” and “Centipede,” two tracks that are synonymous with their signature sound, as well as “Sleaze,” a sick Moombahton banger, and “Bonfire,” a song that nicely fuses elements of dubstep and reggae.
And for those of you living in the NYC Metro area with nothing to do on Sunday, June 3rd, you definitely want to check out the Knife Party Concert being held at the Brooklyn Terminal Project. Not only will Knife Party be playing songs from their new EP, but the venue is supposed to be sick! It’s an outdoor venue that boasts amazing views of the NYC skyline. I wouldn’t miss it if I were you. You can buy tickets here. Below is the ‘Rage Valley’ EP preview. You can buy it now on Beatport here or wait until June 4th to buy it on Itunes.
