New Release: Kneebody – ‘The Line’ + US Tour

 

Kneebody‘s explosive rock energy paralleled with high-level nuanced chamber ensemble shines through on their fourth album, The Line, which includes 12 original compositions, and contributions from various members of the group.

The Line opens with a dark rock tune titled “Lowell,” then moves to a lighter mood with “Cha-Cha,” a contrapuntal number with an engaging swing beat. “Trite” embodies the non-linear approach the band gives to compositions, while “Still Play” has a twisty, technically challenging horn line that is complemented by the other players’ musicianship.

Watch the Choose Your Own Adventure album preview below, plus stream the full album.

And catch Kneebody on their fall tour starting Friday, 9/27 in NYC!
