Knifeworld: reveal 'Destroy The World We Love' from forthcoming new album
Knifeworld will be releasing their long-awaited second full-length album 'The Unravelling' on the 21st July 2014 in Europe and July 22nd 2014 in the US. The eight-piece band led by Kavus Torabi (Cardiacs, Gong) are extremely excited about the follow-up to 2009's 'Buried Alone: Tales of Crushing Defeat' and they can now reveal a brand new track titled 'Destroy The World We Love'. You can listen to the track streaming here:
Kavus had this to say about the song:
'Destroy The World We Love is one of those rare songs that seemed to take on a trajectory all of its own and sort of wrote itself.
Initially I wanted to do a Glam stomp, something that had a kind of T. Rex and Roxy Music vibe, so we dressed it up in stack-heels and satin, sprinkled glitter all over its beautiful face and hung up a mirror ball, but as we were tying a feather boa around its neck, it started to grow wings, hooves and a tail and bolted off.
It was as much all we could do to saddle up and follow in its wake. We had no idea where it was going, no one could, nonetheless it charged on through towns painted in strange vibrating colours where no man dare speak their name and where all the birds fly upside down.
When it finally got to wherever the hell it ended up we took off our goggles, looked back and realised we'd inadvertently spawned a sort of psychedelic Bohemian Rhapsody.
That'll be the single then, we thought.'
'The Unravelling' will be released as a limited edition digipak CD, single LP vinyl & digital download. The track-listing is as follows:
1. I Can Teach You How To Lose A Fight
2. The Orphanage
3. Send Him Seaworthy
4. Don't Land On Me
5. The Skulls We Buried Have Regrown Their Eyes
6. Destroy The World We Love
7. This Empty Room Once Was Alive
8. I'm Hiding Behind My Eyes
The band will also play 3 UK live dates to celebrate the release, they are as follows:
2nd September - The Musician, Leicester
4th September - Zephyr Lounge, Leamington Spa
5th September - The Lexington, London
Last year the band released a new video for the track 'Don't Land On Me', which is to be featured on the new album.
