Armed with intricate guitar work, impeccable sense of groove, and a pervasive dark tone, Knaaves’ unique blend of metallic hardcore is punishing and memorable all at once. This is made evident on the Milwaukee-based band’s debut release, January; a two-song single that is equally atonal and melodic, crushing and catchy. If the solid songwriting and potent lyrics on this record are any indication of where the band will go, it would be safe to say that Knaaves will be soon be a name on the tip of every punk’s tongue.
In this recent interview, Svbterranean caught up with frontman Andy Parmann to discuss the evolution of the band, the new EP, and combating misogyny.
