Memphis-based death-grind group, KNOLL have today released a new single from their upcoming debut album. The track, titled Earth’s Iron Lung, is streaming everywhere now and comes with an accompanying video created by Frank Huang. Their full length album, Interstice will be self-released on February 26. The album will available on CD, digital, vinyl and cassette, and can be pre-ordered here.
Of the single, the band comment:
“This track is one of the oldest and moldiest in our writing catalogue. Definitely one of the filthier ones off of the album and one that we’ve always felt was easily picked out by crowds. We were lucky enough to work with Frank Huang again this time around – we told him the concept of this song being about rapture and the deliverance of unknowable truths, and he went nuts with it. A lot of the footage is from recordings of Aum Shinrikyo, a 90s Japanese doomsday cult, and is of course rendered with as much visual grime as possible.”
Offering up discordant aggression and oppressive atmosphere, KNOLL’s first single Scattered Prism paved the way for the full length – twelve tracks of pure audio chaos, recorded with Andy Nelson at Bricktop Recordings, in Chicago, IL, this past summer. The album was then mixed by Kurt Ballou and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Interstice features cover artwork by HELL SIMULATION AKA Ethan McCarthy of Primitive Man and Many Blessings.
Despite present circumstances curtailing their live activity, they have already notched up performances with The Black Dahlia Murder, Negative Approach, Sanguisugabogg, Today Is The Day and more heavy hitters. Until conditions allow for their live aural assault to recommence, KNOLL in a recorded form is just the blistering experience needed to tide us over.
