Knife the Symphony

KNIFE THE SYMPHONY (Cincinnati, Ohio) owes a considerable debt to the music released by SST, Touch & Go, and Dischord Records. The band is angular and dynamically diverse, yet they don’t neglect muscular, storming punk-fire. Since 2006, the band has toured quietly, albeit steadily, throughout various portions of the U.S. and Canada and they've consistently released energetic, abrasive, rhythmic and melodic-work garnering comparisons to Hüsker Dü, Drive Like Jehu, Jawbox, and Unwound. Indie music-blog INDEPENDENT CLAUSES has stated that "[Knife The Symphony's] furious, frantic, atypical take on punk rock is pretty much what keeps me from feeling that punk is dead…" while THE BIG TAKEOVER MAGAZINE has described Knife The Symphony as "...locating their nucleus in ground between the late 80’s Dischord and Touch & Go labels...the banging, whirling, ridiculously rhythmic post-punk emo attack is a wonder...these guys are inhuman”. Bring your earplugs. RECOMMENDED IF YOU LIKE: Drive Like Jehu, Husker Du, Fugazi, Jawbox.


Featuring members of Bron Sage, And Illusions, Tyranny is Tyranny, and Hat Party...

Mind your sixes, we'll be right there...

Four piece from Chicago. Formed in 2010. Dirge. Sludge. Noise. There's almost no need for any more description. No 'recommended if you like' nonsense. War Brides are direct, a frontal-assault. All massive riffs and sweat. Immense rhythm section and howling vocals. This is their debut album 'Terminus EP.' Four songs. Twenty minutes of mean, abrasive, hook-laden punishers.

Rock music band located in Cincinnati, consisting of Dave Cupp - guitar/voice (Old City, Caterpillar Tracks, Dophesus, Man Halen), Kyle Knapp - bass/voice (The Turkeys, Future Strikes), Matt Retherford - drums (Royal Holland, House of Feeble Minds)
