Knife Party will 'Abandon Ship' in Australia
Is Knife Party 'abandoning ship' on its new album? Not quite, but the Australian duo had some bad news for fans in early October. According to a message posted on Twitter, Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen say their upcoming album, "Abandon Ship," has been pushed back from it's original end-of-October release date.
Not to fear, Knife Party fans. Instead, the album is now set to come out on November 10th. That means a delay of justtwo weeks. The band also issued an apology promising a stream of the album would be posted in preparation for when the project finally drops. The band says the delay is "for reasons not entirely within our control. We tried everything we could to avoid having to do this, but it was the only way that we could a) have enough time to finish the tracks to a level of quality we were happy with [and] b) fulfill the label/management's criteria of an album release in 2014."
Knife Party went on to explain the album could have easily been put up for streaming and digital sales on time, but they feared music stores "holding artists ransom" by refusing to stock the album if the digital version was released first. The band says that the CDs would take a minimum of three weeks to manufacture and ship.
One thing not delayed is the ongoing tour in support of their new music. Knife Party will celebrate the release with the Abandon Ship Australian Tour beginning in Sydney, Australia on December 13, 2014. They'll make five stops down under before heading back to the U.S. Their first date on the calendar for 2015 is at Holy Ship in Miami, Florida so get your Knife Party tickets now!
Pendulum swings in the favor of Knife Party (Created February 27, 2013)
Even in late 2011, not much was known about the Australian electro house/dubstep duo Knife Party. Founded by two members of the rock band Pendulum, their digital footprint, and thus their identity, were shrouded in secrecy. But as the club project of Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen began producing some raging dance floor anthems, the mystery of Knife Party was no more.
Knife Party isn't just another DJ/production duo. Instead, they have risen to become one of the most exciting acts crisscrossing the globe. And the song that started it all was a remix of Swedish House Mafia's "Save the World," which ascends into a thundering, fist-pumping sing-along at every Knife Party live performance. Then came two EP's – 2011's "100% No Modern Talking" and 2012's "Rage Valley. The former contained the fan-favorite track "Internet Friends." The latter stood out with "Centipede" and "Bonfire," and a song called "Antidote," made with Swedish House Mafia, that outed Knife Party as music's next big thing.
Trekking onto North America's exploding dance scene was the obvious next step. So the duo, already blowing up the UK charts, toured the US with their 'Haunted House' package, which featured their own favorite acts and DJs, and moved tickets like Knife Party had been an established act for years.
On January 22, 2013, Knife Party played a short set on Turntable.FM and debuted a new song called "Power Glove," which will part of their next EP. The following month, they participated in a live Mixmag stream and premiered an untitled electro house track, "LRAD," among other new material.
